a nice Indian flat bread to go with a pot of Curry perhaps.....

1 (.25 oz) dry active yeast
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup sugar
3 Tbs milk
1 egg, beaten
2 tsp salt
4 1/2 cups bread flour

3-4 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup melted butter

In a large bowl dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand about 10 min. to activate yeast.
Stir in sugar, milk, egg, salt. Add flour to make a soft dough. Knead for approx 8-10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place in a well oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth, allow dough to rise to double its size - approx. 1 hr .
Punch down dough and knead in garlic. Pinch off pieces of dough (about golf ball size) and roll into balls. Place on tray and cover with a damp cloth, allow to rise for approx. 30 min or until doubled in volume.

Heat grill pan - I used my electric Cuisinart Griddler

Flatten one ball of dough into a circle and grill for approx. 2-3 min. brush uncooked side with butter, the flip over and grill another 2-3 min., brush the cooked side with butter and flip again for 2-3 min. until nicely browned.
