Naan (Cast Iron Griddle)

READY IN: 2hrs 50mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • In a large bowl, whisk together flours, salt and baking powder. Using a wooden spoon, stir buttermilk into flour mixture. When dough becomes too stiff to mix with a spoon, dust your hands with flour and knead dough in bowl until dry and wet ingredients are thoroughly combined. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let ferment in the refrigerator at least 1 hour and up to 2 days.
  • Dust work surface liberally with flour. Shape dough into balls 3 to 3.5 inches in diameter. The dough will be very sticky; use as much flour as you need to handle it. Use a rolling pin to roll each dough ball into a circle about 6 inches in diameter.
  • Heat a dry cast-iron skillet over high heat until smoking. Slick skillet with 1 T oil. Pick up a dough circle, stretch it out a bit more, shake off any excess flour and place it in skillet. Cook until naan starts to bubble, 1-2 minutes. Drizzle another T of oil over surface of naan, then use tongs or a metal spatula to flip naan. Cook until there is no visible raw flour and surface is speckled brown, 1-2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining dough, adding more oil to pan as needed. Stack finished naan, one on top of another, on plate as you go to keep them warm.
  • Serve naan warm. (Naan will keep, covered in plastic wrap, for up to 2 days at room temperature. Warm in a 350 degree oven before serving.
