Ingredients

How to make it

  • Take luke warm water in a cup, dissolve yeast and sugar in it and keep it aside.
  • Allow it to rise. It normally takes only about 5-10 minutes to rise well.
  • Sift flour and salt into a bowl and add yeast- sugar mixture, yogurt and half of the ghee into it.
  • Mix together to form a smooth dough. Again knead it on a flat surface to make it more smoother.
  • Then it has to be kept in a greased, covered bowl (preferably in a warm place,may be inside the cooking range) and allow it to stand for almost 1 hr,by which the dough will be sized double.
  • Knead the dough for 5 more minutes by punching it down.
  • Divide into lemon sized balls. Flatten (extreme) each ball using hand,and add the toppings.
  • Now heat a skillet (I didn’t have a grill pan, so I used a skillet) on the stove top.Grease it with oil and wipe it off with a cloth or kitchen tissue.
  • Place the flattened dough on it, and cook it on medium heat.
  • Within few minutes, it will puff up, then apply ghee/melted butter on 2 -3 spots and turn it over.
  • Cook for few more minutes and remove. Immediately wrap it in a kitchen towel.
  • Serve hot.
  • Best side dishes: Paneer Butter Masala (Paneer Butter Masala) or Butter Chicken Masala (Butter Chicken Masala)

    Okay so mine looks a little thick compared to the other pics but I could not get them any thinner...but regardless these are delicious! I different flavor of bread than I've ever tasted. You were right Aravi, I am sorry that I've never had naan in my life! I did end up serving it with some Indian eggplant and it was soooo good!

    This was perfect! I made it to go with another recipe from this site called 'Chicken with Onions and Garlic' by Joe1155...a recipe with a lot of Middle Eastern flavor! This was great for soaking up the creamy gravy from that recipe! I made the Naan exactly as written. I had to add a little more flour than stated because it was too sticky. I didn't add the toppings. This was sooo light and fluffy and had great flavor, just like the Naan I've had in Indian restaurants! I will make this often! I added my photo:)
