This is the recipe I will be using in the future. It was easy to work with and turned out great. My first one was best as I didn't have flour on it like the others. Will try not to use flour next time.

I usually have a lot of trouble with breads, but this one works perfectly if you follow it! The dough is a dream to work with, and really nice to knead. I made this for dinner tonight (T-minus a few hours) for my boyfriend's family. I left my Jaffrey cookbook at home so I was really happy to find this recipe online! As a city girl I like to make these mid-westerners try something new once in awhile. :)
A note: My oven here does not work simultaneously with the broiler. I find that 4 minutes at 500 F cooks and browns the breads up well.

Easy enough recipe to prepare and makes a decent amount. I'd probably split the dough into 4 next time and make some fatter ones. The taste is OK, nothing special, will probably add some garlic butter and coriander.

Wondering if I did something wrong. Measured everything out exact, followed directions, but my dough was soupy; my yeast mix was very foamy, my yogurt was room temp, but I ended up having to add 2 extra cups of flour!! I'm at a high elevation, but I've never had to add more than a few tablespoons to make up the difference on something before. Otherwise, the dough did turn out well.

I've been looking for a good naan recipe and finally found it here. Other homemade naan recipes that I've tried turns out tough, dense, and like pizza crust. So I was a bit skeptical on this but I figure Madhur Jaffrey knows her stuff. This naan turned out thin and soft. A great texture. Close to a restaurant. I wish the texture was slightly more soft and delicate though. Perhaps I need to roll it out thinner. I have a charcoal grill with a pizza stone so baked them on that. And brushed with butter as they came off the grill. Will definitely be making this recipe again.

I love this recipe. It's not sticky when you knead like others I've tried. We cooked our naan on the bbq and it turned out amazing. Will be using this recipe from now on.

'WOW' a hour and a half?! I tried this recipe and it's nowhere as good as a half an hour recipe I came up with

I can't wait to try this, currently my dough mix is outside rising because it's warmer outside than in!! I have made a chicken jalfrezi so this naan will go perfect with that. I will let you know the outcome
