It was great. The first batch I made puffed up alot and was very crispy. The second batch I lowered the temp to 500 and poked the top of the bread in a few places with a fork and they came out beautiful (just like the photograph. Will be making it again.
Eh. texture was nothing like naan....tastewise, yes. however, the dough didn't rise at all for me, and i found a way better recipe from an indian cookbook....i probably did something wrong with the dough, so i may try this again. however, i think cooking naan in a pan is WAAAY easier, i was in a flurry pulling the pans in and out of the oven, etc....tooooo much hard work for something dissatisfying....and a friend of mine asked her mother (who is indian), and she said that it should NOT take four hours to make.
This bread is delicious, even when served with butter or margarine. Takes a little while to make, but it's worth it!
This recipe is fantastic! I slowly added the flour mixture to the yeast mixture as I always seemed to have too much flour. I also cooked it on the grill (high heat) for a minute or two a side- delicious!
Makes great pizza bread. I made a double batch and formed balls then wrapped in saran wrap and froze them. They will expand a little, but thaw very fast. Just roll out and top with favorite pizza toppings. I also added garlic and omitted yogurt, because I didn't have any. Seemed to turn out ok.
This was GREAT! The only change I made was that I used a baking stone (preheated in the oven for 45 min) instead of the pizza pan and baked the naan on parchment paper. It turned out wonderfully! Thank you sooo much for this recipe deanna!
Really very good. Puffed up beautifully and was a nice side to the Chicken Tikka Masala I made. The only substitutions I made: used whole wheat white flour; instead of plain, I used vanilla-flavored yogurt because it is what I had on hand.
I thought it was pretty good, although mine never did rise like the picture...
