Gluten Free Naan Bread
- 1/2 cup warm water (110F)
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp yeast
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 3/4 cup white rice flour
- 3/4 cup brown rice flour
- 1/3 cup tapioca starch (plus more for dusting)
- 1/2 cup corn starch
- 2 tsp xanthan gum
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup light cooking oil (I use Rice Bran oil)
- 2 eggs lightly beaten
Add buttermilk, eggs and oil to yeast mixture & stir. Add to the dry ingredients and stir into a soft dough, about the consistency of mashed potatoes. Allow to rest 20 minutes.
Heat a cast iron skillet on the stove until a drop of water sprinkled on the pan sizzles.
Sprinkle 2 Tbsp tapioca starch on clean flat surface and scoop about 1/3 cup of the dough on the surface (will be about 1/8th of the dough) Knead a little and flatten a bit. Using a wide, thin spatula, transfer to the skillet. Immediately flatten and spread out in the pan taking care not to burn your arm on the pan sides!
Fry on each side for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per side.
Repeat with the remaining dough adding tapioca starch as needed to the surface for kneading.
Serve warm with your curry or just with butter. So soft and delicious!
