In a large bowl, combine the warm water and the sugar, sprinkle the yeast over the surface.
Stir together the olive oil, egg and ½ cup plain yogurt.
Add the egg/oil/yogurt mixture and stir to combine.
Sprinkle the all-purpose flour over the yeast mixture but do not stir.
Sprinkle the salt over the flour.
After 15 minutes, stir the dough to incorporate the flour and salt until a ball forms. To make this process easier use a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook.
Place in a lightly oiled bowl, covered with a towel or plastic wrap. Let the dough rise in a warm spot for 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
Punch it down and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface.
Form the dough into a large ball, divide the dough into 8 equal-sized pieces.
Roll each piece of dough into a tight ball, Allow the dough balls to rest.
Heat a cast-iron skillet.
Flatten each dough ball with your fingertips or use a rolling pin to roll the into an oval.
Cook on a hot skillet for 45-60 seconds or until bubbles form on the naan dough.
Flip and cook the other side until golden brown, about 30 seconds.
If desired, brush with garlic butter or melted butter and sprinkle with everything but the bagel seasoning.
How would this bread be served?Naan bread is served warm, fresh from the skillet, and is wonderful with traditional Indian dishes. If I make a double batch of this naan recipe, I will be sure to serve it with my newest dip obsession, muhammara. I have also been known to cut naan into triangles or strips and add it to a cheese board when I put one together. How should Naan be stored?Naan should be enjoyed as fresh as possible. But sometimes there are leftovers or you make a particularly large batch. To store naan bread in the refrigerator in a closed plastic bag or an air tight container. Be sure the naan is completely cool before storing and only keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Keep your naan bread stored in a closed container or closed plastic bag on the counter for two to three days. How should naan be reheated?If you have a piece of naan that is the right size for the toaster, go ahead and pop it in the toaster on a low setting to warm it up. A toaster oven works well for warming naan as well.Personally I am not a fan of microwaving bread because I feel that the bread looses the heat faster than toasting it in a toaster, oven or toaster oven but I know I may be in the minority on this argument. If you wanted to heat your naan in the microwave, I would place it on a microwave safe plate, cover it loosely with a damp paper towel and warm it in 15 second increments until the desired temperature is reached.
