I mixed the water, yeast and sugar and waited for it to get all foamy. But it didn't. So I dumped it down the sink and started again. I assumed (incorrectly) that I used water that was too hot and killed the yeast. Well...my second go around yielded the same results. No foam.
But I forged ahead anyways. I mixed the rest of the ingredients but left out this flour:
for obvious reasons and got to kneading. Well it looked like dough. I set it aside and an hour later it still looked like this:
the yeast did not do its thing thus my dough didn't rise. But I cooked it anyways. At first the dough bubbled up like it was supposed to:
But when I flipped it, the bubbles sank and my bread turned out more like a tortilla pancake then a naan.
I probably went wrong in many ways but I am going to blame the yeast this time. At least they kind of looked like naan.
I threw some crock pot bbq chicken on top and a few fresh mozzarella bits and made myself a little pizza. It was delicious. Even on a pancake-naan.
* I know that the letter A in the word cat is a short vowel...and the letter A in the word same is a long vowel...but what about when the letter A makes the sound that it does in naan, or at the end of Santa? Long or short? Is there a medium vowel?
