To His Heart - by way of the stomach

Easy loves naan.

So when I want him to know that I've been thinking of him and that he is my favorite man - I make it for him.

I even stand barefoot on burning concrete... in 100+ degree weather... in front of a scorching hot grill.

I don't know what can say love much more than that.

Well...may be this?

See? Roo loves Easy too.

I'll admit it here and say that he is her all time favorite. Good thing because I wouldn't want to leave her three nights a week and all day Saturdays with someone she doesn't absolutly adore. I swear it that she saves her special little giggles and very best kisses for him. She is delighted when he enters the room and comfortably snuggles up to her bottle and him every evening for some special bonding - no moms allowed.

Lucky girl.

Naan

2.5 tsp yeast
1 c warm water
1/3 c white sugar
3 T milk
1 egg, beaten
2 tsp salt
3.5-4.5 c flour (white or wheat)
2 tsp minced garlic (optional)
1/4 c butter, melted

Dissolve yeast in large bowl with the warm water. Let stand until frothy. Stir in sugar, milk, egg, salkt, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface (or continue mixing with bread hook) until soft and springy.

Place in oiled bowl and set aside for 1 hour or until double.

Punch down and knead in garlic. Pinch off golf ball sized pieces and roll into balls. Place on a tray and cover with towel for about 30 min.

Preheat grill. Med-high heat

Roll out balls into thin ovals. Stack them with paper towels in between to keep from sticking and take them to the grill with the butter. Cook on one side until bubbles appear. Brush with butter and flip. Then brush the cooked side with butter while waiting for it to brown.

Don't plan on having any leftovers. Somehow they will all disappear.


Chicken Tikka Masala here.

Note: If you make the masala please do not add all that salt the recipe calls for. You will hate me for posting this and probably defriend me. Instead wait to salt until the end and taste it as you do (I ended up only using about a tsp). I also cut out the cayenne and the jalapeno and I used coconut milk instead of whipping cream because that is what I had.

With all that being said the Masala was awesome!

Cutting out cayenne and jalapeno? Girl you are so weaksauce.

But I am sooo making this recipe. It looks so freakin good.

I use this same recipe, too. The first time I made it I added all of the salt... YIKES! It was nutso. I cut it down to 1/2 teas for both the sauce and the marinade. That is totally plenty for us.

Never had naan, but now I'll definitely have to try it. It's a sure bet if you say it's good

I almost bought naan the other day but didn't think Fat would like it. However, in his defense, he is defiantly acquiring a taste for the exotic. He's begged me to make Chicken Shawarmas at least once a week. It's a middle eastern galic/curry dish. So yummy! So I'll have to try naan on him. . . I'll tell him E likes it to really sell it to him.
