Grilled Cardamom Nan Bread

Cuisine: Indian
Courses: Breads
Serves: 8 people

Recipe Ingredients

1   Active dry yeast
1 1/4 cups 296mlLukewarm water
1 tablespoon 15mlHoney
1 tablespoon 15mlOlive oil - plus more for
3 1/2 cups 218g / 7.7ozBread flour
1 tablespoon 15mlSalt
1 tablespoon 15mlGround cardamom

Recipe Instructions

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the water and stir in the honey. Let stand until foamy, about 10 minutes. Add the 1 tablespoon of oil, the flour, salt and cardamom and stir until the dough forms a cohesive mass.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 minutes. Divide the dough into 8 pieces and shape each piece into a ball. Set the balls an oiled baking sheet and brush with the oil. Cover loosely with plastic and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, 1 to 2 hours. (MAKE AHEAD: The dough can be refrigerated overnight. Punch down the balls before proceeding.)

On a lightly floured surface, roll out each ball of dough to an 8-inch disk. Arrange them on 3 oiled baking sheets and let rest for 20 minutes.

Light a grill or heat a grill pan or cast-iron skillet. Brush each nan lightly with the olive oil and grill for about 1 minute, until golden on the bottom and light bubbles form on the top. Turn and cook until golden all over, about 1 minute. Keep warm while you cook the remaining nan.
