    love4culinary's Note:

    These are easy to make and taste just wonderful! Prep time does not include 2 hours that you will need to set the dough aside. I cook these one at a time which will add up to about 60-80 mins total for cooking time!

      I have made these several times and they are fabulous for homemade donairs or even for flatbread pizzas. I have discovered that I prefer cooking the naan on a smoking hot cast iron grill pan rather than baking in the oven. This way you get it browned without making it too crispy. I also brush with a mixture of melted unsalted butter, minced garlic, chopped fresh parsley & sea salt before grilling. Yum!

      Excellent. I brushed with ghee, garlic, parsley, sea salt and pepper prior to baking on a pizza stone. As a visual twist you can add a small amount of turmeric to the ghee mixture. It comes out a beautiful golden color with browning in spots and on the edges. Also, I only baked six minutes on the hot stone flipping at 3 minutes. Your mileage may vary depending on your oven, Great with Indian or Middle Eastern/Mediterranean food. I would definitely not recommend baking too long or rolling too thin or you will wind up with savory crackers and not flat bread. Not quite the equal of my favorite Indian restaurant, but darn close for cooking at home.

      I made this to go with "Chicken Curry in a Hurry" and raita. It was easy , I tossed every thing in the Cuisinart, and just gave it a few whirls. I cut the recipe in half, left out the soda and added 1/2 TBLS of yeast as others suggested. The dough was just right using the stated amount of flour (in half of course). I brushed it with garlic butter and sprinkled with cilantro and kosher salt before baking. The flavor and texture were great! This is definitly a keeper!
