Naan bread

Hello! The other day I had needed to go grocery shopping, so I had to improvise for dinner that night. I had been craving Naan bread pretty badly that day, and I had the I made it. I also paired it with White Chicken Chili.
I love bread. I can eat bread all day long. To quote Scott Pilgrim though.."Bread makes you fat!?"
It does.
Back to my love of bread...omg, bread. If I was going to have a last meal, it would be a crunchy, delicious baguette with assorted cheeses and olive oil, and sweet red pepper marmalade. Yes.

The Recipe:

1 1/2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 packet dry active yeast
1 teaspoon sugar 
3 cups flour, and some for the working space

Alright...get out your bowl and combine the warm water, yeast and sugar. Stir and let rest (about 5 minutes) until it begins to foam. Add your salt and flour, and stir and cover for about 45 wont rise much. 
Alright! Get it out of the bowl and cover the workspace with flour. Pour out your dough and knead it about 20 times, and roll it out with a pin. Roll it until it is about 1/8" thick, and cut out circles. Turn on your electric griddle ( or pan) and oil it well, and grill pieces until browned. 

 Well, there you have it. Delicious naan bread to dip in hummus or chili or whatever!
