Grilled Flat Bread

What better way to celebrate summer than some grilling. There is nothing like hot flat bread right off the grill, with the nicely charred outside and light fluffy inside.
I used a naan recipe with a few simple modifications from this awesome Indian cook book.

Grilled Flat Bread
500 g (4 cups ) flour, I used 400 g white, 100 g wheat
1 1/4 cup milk, warmed slightly
2 tsp yeast
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 Tbs butter, melted
1 Tbs garlic oil
3/4 cup yogurt
2 -3 cloves garlic

Mix the yogurt, egg, oil, butter and garlic.


In a large bowl mix the flours, salt, baking powder. In a small bowl mix yeast with a little milk.


Now mix everything together to form a single mass. Turn onto a flour surface a knead a few minutes. Let rest about 15 minutes, then mix a few more minutes.


Form into a ball and place into a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with plastic and let rest until double, at least an hour, maybe more.


After resting, turn onto floured work surface.


Divide into even sized portions. I like using a scale to keep them all about the same size.


Let rest while heating up the grill. Just before you are ready, stretch out the dough. It is better to use your hands rather than a rolling pin as this can make the dough tough. Brush with oil.


Place the dough straight onto a hot grill. After a couple of minutes the outside will char slightly and will be easily flipped. Brush with oil before flipping.


Cook on second side for a few minutes. You can drizzle a little more garlic oil on after removing.
