How to make it

  • Mix water with the yeast and sugar until the yeast is dissolves.
  • Sift flour and salt together into a bowl and add the yeast mixture, half of the ghee and the yogurt. Mix to forma soft dough, then knead on a floured surface for about 5 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic.
  • Place the dough in a large greased bowl, cover and let stand in a warm place for 1 hour or until the dough doubles in size.
  • Punch down the dough and knead for 5 minutes. Divide dough into lemon sized balls
  • Flatten the dough using a rolling pin, or by hand (I prefer the second method, for the very rustic look it provides).
  • Top with sesame seeds or any other topping of your choice.
  • Brush grill pan with oil, wipe it with a piece of cloth.
  • Grill Naan over a medium heat until unevenly browned, brushing with ghee before turning.
  • Brown unevenly on second side, remove from heat and serve warm.
  • I add minced garlic to my dough (I've added garlic powder in a pinch) to make garlic naan.

    I had a chance to watch this bread being made at an Indian Restaurant I was amazed by the method used in the old style gas ovens.

    Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe.

    This is great! Been looking for a way to make naan for a while. Ate some at a restaurant in California, overlooking the Pacific Ocean about 5 yrs ago, and it was fantastically loaded with all kinds of little surprises. Maybe fennel, and many things I didn't recognize. Thanks lots!! 5555555 to you!!

    This would be great to bake in the open oven in the outdoor kitchen.
