This was my first attempt at making naan and I'm quite pleased! I followed other reviewers' suggestions and only used about 3 1/2 cups of flour. Made sure to "activate" the yeast by adding 1/2 tsp of sugar to the water and yeast mixture, which worked like a charm (I followed the yeast packet directions and only mixed the yeast with 1/4 cup water to activate, and then added the rest of the required water when mixing all the ingredients together).
I think the next time I make this, I'll cut down the 1/4 cup sugar to 1 Tbsp - it just seemed far too sweet for naan.
I opted not to knead the garlic into the dough, but rather put it in the butter when I melted it and brushed it on as I cooked the naan.
I don't have a grill or grill pan, so used my trusty cast iron pan and it did the job! I cooked up half the batch and then had to take a break (WHO CAN NOT GIVE IN TO A BIG PILE OF NAAN STARING AT YOU?), but probably shouldn't have. I think the second half ended up being a bit more tough due to the delay in cooking.
