    Galley Wench's Note:

    The following are the baking instruction to be used to make Naan using the dough made with Artisan Boule Bread or my favorite, No-Knead Flatbreads - Master Recipe (Pizza, Naan, Focaccia). No oven needed here; this delicious and buttery Indian flatbread is done in a hot, cast-iron skillet. Perfect for camping or in my small boat galley. This recipe makes one naan 8 - 9" naan.. Note that this is the baking instructions only! Refer to the dough recipe for the rising time required for the dough!!!

      I have tried many recipes for naan and this one is very close to the original from a tandoor. Soft and fluffy. And easy to make. Thanks for posting.

      Apart from 2 minutes preparation time, I think you should mention '2 hours waiting for it to rise' !!
