8 ounces flour (about 1.5 cups) 1 teaspoon yeast 1 teaspoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 fluid oz. plain yogurt 4 fluid oz. warm water cooking oil (soybean, canola, whatever)
Dissolve sugar and yeast in the warm water. Measure the flour and salt into a large bowl. When the yeast water is foamy, add it to the flour, and add the yogurt, too. Mix it up with a spoon, then your hands, until it comes together.
Knead it on a floured surface for about 5-10 minutes. Put back in bowl, cover it tightly with cling wrap, and let it rise for 1/2 hour.
Use a large, nonstick pan if you have it. Heat it on high until hot, then turn it down to between Med. and High.
Roll out 1/2 the dough. Prick it with a fork all over. Lightly brush with oil, then slap that side down on the pan. Lightly brush the topside with oil.
Watch the bread! When it's brown, turn it over. It will burn if you don't watch it.
Makes 2 large plate-sized naan (I listed as 8 servings)
Agree with everyone else, it is great bread. So easy, so quick. Another poster asked "I dont understand these directions. So you just cook it on the hot pan, and not in the oven?!" the answer is YES! YES! Just like tortillas. Although I may try broiling like other posters. Thanks!
This is so easy and delicious. I divided the dough into 6 pieces instead of 2 and it made 6 good sized pieces of Naan. I cooked it on a cast iron skillet. Better than any of the naan I get at the grocery store.
Made for my hubbie. He loves naan. I used whole wheat flour, so it was a bit heavier. (Hubbie said it was really good that way too.)I added garlic and broiled it. It took about 5 min on each side. Thanks for the recipe!!!
I used sour cream in place of yogurt cuz that's what I had on hand. Used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray in place of oil to cut down on calories/fat. Not quite as good as the regular way of doing it but still good and knowing it's a little healthier makes it even better! Thanks for the idea
Made this yesterday. It was easy and delisious. It was gone as soon as it was finished so I'll will probably be doubling the ingredients next time. I added garic to mine too. Thank ou for sharing this with everyone!
This was my first attempt making any type of bread, and I was surprised how easy it was! This tasted exactly like the naan I've had at Indian restaurants. I love garlic so I added 2 cloves to the dough to give it more flavor. I could not stop eating it while I was cooking the rest of dinner!
For some reason I was intimidated by making naan. This recipe is so easy and so good- no more fear! This is better than any flatbread I've bought in the store, and I definitely think it is going to become a staple in our house (my husband actually requested that!)
