Very YUMMY naan bread! It was so easy to make and quick as well. It was indeed more dense and heavier than the ones you normally get in restaurants, but I didnt mind at all. It tasted just oh so good! I added 1/2ts curry powder, some mixed dried herbs and some caraway seeds to it in order to spice it up a bit. But Im sure it would also taste wonderful as is. Also I used half whole spelt flour instead of the normal flour and brushed the baked naans with some home-made garlic butter, which was delicious! But other than that I followed the recipe exactly and got exactly 8 breads out of it. This is a definite keeper! Thanks so much for sharing, Oolala!
Thanks, Oolala. Definitely a keeper. I made half a recipe and we enjoyed it. I divided the dough into 8 pieces and rolled each individually. I had an issue with the oil; next time I will use very little, perhaps just brush oil on pan as suggested elsewhere. And I will use a cast iron skillet. But these were great-tasting and were finished up quickly. Good with soup!
This was fantastically easy! I can't believe how easy! my 2 year old loved them and ate more than I could! I had issues with the amount of oil needed in the bottom of the pan... a battle between wanting less fat but wanting more tasty "fried-bread-taste". I think next time I'll try brushing on oil into the skillet between rounds with a pastry brush.
OH - MY - WORD. This was so delicious. And so easy. I made about 10. The only thing I did different, was to add a bit more oil as I added more rounds. Also, when I first put them in the pan, I used the back of the spatula to give them one last squish to get them nice and flat. These are a keeper for sure! They make so many! I can keep them in the freezer. Thanks for the recipe.
i think the person with the deep fried lumps over did it on the oil. i greased the pan just enough to keep the bread from sticking and i only turn them once. by looking at the bread you would never know oil was involved. they come out perfectly, soft and delicious, and i have made this recipe now many, many times. they remind me of the pocketless pita that gyros are made on. i highly recommend this recipe. it will become a staple.
I don't know if I did something wrong or maybe I just need to try again. But these didn't turn out like I thought they would.
Sorry Mom, but this was really not good. Please don't EVER make this again.It was like a deep-fried lump. I really did not like this.
Substitution: half all purpose flour, half whole wheat. For the fluffy effect, the dough needs to stand a bit to allow the acid yogurt and leavening agents to start to react and puff. Use flour as needed on the board to prevent the dough from sticking. I rolled out the dough about 1/2 inch thick, sprinkled one half with thinly sliced scallions, and folded it over in half, and then half again, like you would "book" puff pastry over butter layers. Roll down once more to 1/2 inch. Cut into quarters and hold aside in floured layers on a plate, covered with foil or a damp towel. Roll each quarter portion out very thin, 1/8 inch, cut into serving slices, the onions will show through. Fry in a bit of oil until they puff a bit and begin to brown. Hold the finished ones in the oven until ready to eat or to package to store. Yummy with Chilled Lobster Salad with Basil-Lime Salsa (#37773)
Great results. I forgot to make my normal naan bread, and as I didn't have time to wait I decided to try these. I will make them always as from today. Thanks for sharing
Good naan. I found it easier to divide into 8 pieces and roll out each piece and cook. Thanks.
