Title: Baked Flatbread with Garlic (Lahsooni Naan)
Yield: 12 Servings
Categories: Bread, Indian, Vegetarian, Ethnic


4 c Unbleached all-purpose flour
2 ts Baking soda
1 ts Cream of tartar
1/4 ts Sea salt
1/2 c Water
1 tb Egg replacer
1 c Soymilk or lowfat milk
2 tb Canola oil
1/4 c Olive oil or melted ghee
2 Garlic cloves; minced

Combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Set aside.

Whisk water and egg replacer.

Mix egg replacer, soy milk and canola oil in a large bowl.

Add flour mixture to soymilk mixture and stir until dough forms a ball.
Knead briefly, place in a greased bowl and cover with a damp towel. Let
dough rest in a warm, draft-free area for 2-1/2 to 3 hours.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil baking sheets.

Saute garlic in olive oil for 2 minutes. Set aside.

Lightly coat hands with vegetable oil and knead dough on a lightly floured
surface until smooth, about 3 minutes. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces
and roll each into a ball. Flatten each ball with hands, roll into an oval
about 3/8" thick and stretch ends to form a teardrop shape (wide at base
and tapering to a point on top).

Place on baking sheets and brush with garlic oil. Bake on middle rack for 6
to 8 minutes.
