This is wonderful! I omitted nigella seeds simply because I don't have them. <br/><br/>Straight forward recipe with easily accessible ingredients on hand. I even used vanilla yogurt with no drastic changes in flavor (didn't have any plain yogurt). <br/><br/>I've rolled them no less than 1/4" thick. Any thinner and they turn into naan crackers! <br/><br/>I've noticed a heavy skillet/pan is crucial to getting the lovely crispy bits. I also use a lid and cover and do around 1 to 2 minutes a side, checking every so often to make sure the brown spots don't born. I used medium high heat to start, then adjusted the heat as necessary. <br/><br/>Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe! It makes chewy soft naan.

These are delicious! As awalde suggested, I used 2 teaspoons of active yeast and replaced the nigella seeds with black sesame seeds. This was surprisingly easy and was enjoyed with awalde's Coconut Rice, oven baked chicken and veggies. Made for PRMR tag game. Thanks awalde!

Easy to make and delicious! Couldn't find nigella seeds so used sesame and poppy, crushed a bit. I cooked mine in the oven at 500 degrees, 2 minutes on one side and about 45 seconds on the other. Lovely with your Micronesian Coconut Chicken Curry - thanks for sharing the recipe!

Just lovely! I had no nigella seeds, so I added a 1/2 tsp curry powder and it really popped! I also ran out of yogurt, so I substituted with low-fat sour cream with great results. Used the skillet method and served with <br/>http://www.food.com/recipe/chicken-makhani-indian-butter-chicken-234639. Winning combination!

This recipe was very easy to do..I thought bread would raise more than it did, it still turned our great. I took advice to not roll the bread too thin...I took pics so check it out. I was disappointed that I did not take more time to add some added flavor, like fresh ground garlic, etc. to the recipe. I cooked on med/high heat, and it was too hot..Watch your bread, it does not take but a min to cook when you cook it in a skillet!! It went fast on the table, so be prepared to make more. This recipe is only good for 6 people..if they share and not get too greedy..which is easy to do...add butter after removing from skillet.

This was simple, easy and gobbled up quickly at dinner. I baked mine (minus nigella seeds) on a pancake griddle. My family thought I had discovered the trade secret to replicating Trader Joe's naan.

I substituted whole wheat flour and it turned out well. I also used a pancake grill instead of oven. Worked well also.

I forgot that the broiler element was out in my oven, so I cooked mine in a skillet over medium heat. Delicious! For ZWT8

I love Naan, and was happy to see this recipe posted. I used the stovetop method. After making it plain, I also made a garlic flavored one since I am a garlic-a-holic. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8.
