How to make it

  • * note that you can add more flour to make it the right consistency.. that wont ruin the naan as long as you give it the required 3-4 hours to rise.
  • In a mixing bowl add flour, baking powder, salt and sugar
  • Mix well
  • Add your oil and yogurt and mix well
  • Dissolve the yeast in warm water and let it sit for 2 mins
  • Mix the yeast water into your flour and kead well ( Make it a bread dough like consistency and just a little bit sticky. but not too dry, add more water if needed)
  • Let it sit for 3-4 hours ( i leave it for about 4 hours)
  • Knead your dough again for a min or two
  • Divide your dough into 6 parts
  • Turn on your oven to broil and let it heat for 20 mins, with your stone in the oven
  • Make the parts into ball shapes and coat it with flour ( makes it easier to roll)
  • Sprinkle some chopped garlic on to the ball ( you can use, cumin, cilantro, poppy seeds, mustard seeds, almonds, pistachios etc..)
  • Using a rolling pin, roll your balls into a pita shape ( dont roll it too thin)
  • Be careful and put each uncooked naan on the stone and let it cook for 3 mins
  • Check to see if it has puffed up or has a puffy surface
  • Remove from oven and baste it with your melted butter
  • Preserve in foil to keep it warm
  • Repeat the process until you have baked all of your naan's
  • Serve with chutney, dry curries or veggies... eat plain if you like.

    I love Indian food and Afghanistan food and I've always had to buy the bread from the Middle Eastern market which isn't that great. Thanks for this recipe!

    Thanks so much for this recipe. I love this bread but have only eaten the store bought type. I'm so glad to be able now to make it myself. '5' from me.

    You have some great recipes, this one I will love to try as soon as I get a pizza stone, which is next on my kitchen list.
