Indian flat bread

Top Review by Curry Craver

Great recipe! Very similar to the one I use, I believe yours has a little more liquid. I will try that next time. I use a baking stone for cooking the naan but I crank the oven up as high as it will go and they cook in just a few minutes, just like in a tandoor.
