turned out really well, used half whole wheat flour and half white. found that the ones that were rolled thinner puffed up better. thanks!
Beware making these--you will gobble them all up, make more, and eat those too. These are SO good. Easy to make, too, though a little time consuming. I flatten mine out in a tortilla press. I found the flatter, the better. Getting them paper thin to the point of nearly tearing gave them those puffy little pockets like restaurant naan. I've used store-bought yogurt as well as homemade nonfat yogurt, and both work well.
I used whole wheat pastry flour and nonfat plain yogurt. I also added two teaspoons of turmeric for color and flavor, divided the dough into 16 small rounds, and brushed the finished product with melted garlic butter and Indian spices. They were amazing! Chewy, crisp, light, and puffy.
This recipe is so good and so simple. If I don't want to use the oven, I have used a frying pan to cook both sides and it turns out just fine. I even use this bread instead of hamburger buns. It tastes especially good with Curried Pork Burgers #431629
Super easy and yummy! Everyone raves about this Naan every time I make it--I add about 1/2 tsp. of rapid rise yeast to mine, without proofing--it seems to add to the chew of the bread without having to wait for a full rise yeast leavened naan.
What a great simple, fun recipe this was to make with excellent results. I went to buy naan for our curry dinner tonight, but was shocked at the fat count, so decided to make my own low fat version. Your recipe was perfect and I'm so glad I found it. I'll be making this again as we eat lots of curry. Thanks for posting.
This was my first time making naan, and it turned out really well. I noticed that the fatter ones did better than the thinner ones, and the 4 minutes on the stovetop worked well for me. SSSSOOOOOOO GOOD!
What a wonderful recipe! And so easy to make!!! I halved the recipe since I have never tried it before, and it worked well. I will not half it next time. I used half whole wheat and half unbleached white. Next time I will try 100% whole wheat and update on how it turns out. Thanks for the recipe!
I can't wait to make this again using the right ingredients. (I bought vanilla yogurt by mistake, and they were still fabulous!) I mixed the dough (using half whole-wheat pastry flour) in my bread maker, which made it super easy. I had to add more flour to get the right texture, but it rolled out great and they were very tasty.
This recipe is awesome!! For those who commented that this naan is not as good as their fav restaurant, I am sorry. This is every bit as good if made according to the specific instructions. When rolled out very thin, they puff up and get nice and brown. I did brush with the melted butter and that is even better!! Next time I will try adding some whole wheat flour just to see if the end result is just as good but healthier.
