    I love this simple recipe! However, I was rather lazy and did not sift the flour and salt together, and just threw everything into my KitchenAid with the dough hook. (They were a little bit tough, and I place the blame for that on my lazy habits.) This is the first time I have made my own naan, and I'm happy to say that even though they were a bit chewy, I will be making them again (and sifting the flour and salt together as recommended.) Thank you for this recipe Charishma!

    I am in love. Great recipe!! I was worried that one cup of liquid would not be enough, but it turned out. I slapped mine on a baking stone in my oven that I had heated for one and a half hours at 500 degrees fahrenhit. They came out perfect. It went great with the tandoori chicken I made for my husbands birthday dinner. He said it was the best naan he has ever had.

    This recipe was a huge hit in this household. I found that the doubling time only took 45 minutes but I live in the tropics and my kitchen is a constant 30 deg C. I used olive oil and water and found the recipe worked perfectly. I didn't roll the dough - I pushed it out with my fingers making it look a lot more rustic.
