  1. Combine water, yeast, and sugar in a large bowl. Let stand until bubbly and frothy, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in milk, egg, salt, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth, 6 to 8 minutes. Place dough into a well oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and set aside to rise until the dough has doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch down dough and knead well. For garlic naan, knead in garlic at this point.
  4. Pinch off small handfuls of dough about the size of golf balls. Roll into balls, cover with a clean cloth, and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  5. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  6. Roll out 2 balls of dough into elongated ovals. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and cook under the broiler until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Brush butter on both sides and flip. Continue broiling until the second side is firm and golden, 2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining dough.

This is a fantastic recipe, but we did make a couple of changes. We added extra garlic and found after that it still needed more, so if you like garlic then go heavy handed. Instead of regular ...

So easy to make. Time is all that is required. Everyone loved it, even more than the curry.
