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!

- 6 tablespoons plain yogurt (room temperature)
