Onion - Garlic Naan


1 large onion, finely chopped

1 tbsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic, chopped

3/4 cup lukewarm water

1/3 cup vegan margarine, melted

1 tspn salt

3 to 3 1/2 cups flour


  1. In a medium sauté pan over high heat, cook the onion in the olive oil, stirring occasionally.  Add garlic.  When the onions are translucent and just golden brown, remove from heat.
  2. In a large bowl using a wooden spoon, combine the onion-garlic mixture, water, melted margarine, and salt.  Begin adding 3 cups of flour 1/2 cup at a time.  Add the extra 1/4 to 1/2 cup flour only if you need it to form a smooth dough that doesn't stick to your hands.
  3. Form the dough into a large ball and cut into 16 equal pieces; roll each into a ball.  On a lightly floured surface, roll each ball into an 8-inch circle.
  4. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, place each naan in the pan for about 3 - 4 minutes on each side.

Makes a dozen naan.
