      Yummy! I used a pizza stone positioned close (3-4 inches) to the electric (grrr!) broiler coil. What is kalonji?

      Really enjoyed the naan - used half semolina and half all purpose flour, added onion powder and garlic powder and a half teaspoon of garam masala - used a skillet on the stovetop with olive oil and they were great!

      This was good, but not as soft as I would have liked.
