Instructions Checklist
  • Combine water, yeast, and sugar in a large bowl. Let stand until bubbly and frothy, about 10 minutes.

  • Stir in milk, egg, salt, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth, 6 to 8 minutes. Place dough into a well oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and set aside to rise until the dough has doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

  • Punch down dough and knead well. For garlic naan, knead in garlic at this point.

  • Pinch off small handfuls of dough about the size of golf balls. Roll into balls, cover with a clean cloth, and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.

  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Roll out 2 balls of dough into elongated ovals. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and cook under the broiler until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Brush butter on both sides and flip. Continue broiling until the second side is firm and golden, 2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining dough.

This is a fantastic recipe, but we did make a couple of changes. We added extra garlic and found after that it still needed more, so if you like garlic then go heavy handed. Instead of regular salt we used rosemary salt. Also as a tip when broiling, these need less time with each batch that goes in. Read More

These are delightful. My whole family liked them. I used Rapid Rise yeast. Added it to the dry ingredients and added the milk to the water. I beat the egg separately, then added it to the water and poured all the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. I began with only 4 c. flour and added more as needed while I kneaded it for 10 full minutes. Note: Be sure that the breads are a full 6 inches from the broiler and watch them closely. It only took 1 minute for each side to bake in my oven! Read More

Super easy and very, very good. I opted to use less than half the sugar called for in the recipe, and added a little onion powder and garlic powder for flavor. I also cooked it on a griddle instead of using broiler. Read More

I made a mistake and added the melted butter with the dough. Turned out great! Am making it for the second time and will follow the original recipe. Read More

For homemade Naan, it wasn't terrible, just didn't have the right taste. More like a pancake. Disappointed. Read More

As naan goes, this was only so-so. Needed better texture and flavor. Read More
