About this recipe: This recipe makes the best naan I have tasted outside of South Asia. I don't have a tandoor, so I've found that the barbecue is the next best thing.
Great recipe... Tips: I did it severall times and had problems to create the many bubbles I saw in India... Solved by adding a 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and putting a lid on the pan... Do this and bubles will pop out everywhere and the bread will melt in your mouth... - 16 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Absolutely better than the Naan served in my favorite local Indian restaurant. A couple of comments to clarify the recipe instructions, however: "Proofing" the yeast means that you must add about 1 Tblsp. of sugar to the warm water and yeast, then allow to double in volume prior to adding any further ingredients (I might not have known that had I not stumbled upon proofing instructions on the package). Also, I found that it took a considerable amount of time for this dough to rise, so keep that in mind when you are planning for this to accompany a meal. High heat was way too extreme a cooking temperature. I burned the first few and ended up keeping the heat on medium-low. This recipe had a wonderful flavor, and you could truly eat them alone with nothing more than a little butter. Tasty! - 03 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have mostly forgotten was naan tastes like, but this was relatively similar. As I live in an off-campus apartment, I didn't have access to a real grill, so I tried the following: 1. Cooking it on an open George Foreman Grill 2. Cooking it on it closed. 3. Cooking on a grill pan in the oven. 4. Grilling it in a toaster oven. The opened George Foreman was best. And another tip: Don't knead in the minced garlic. Add it to the hot melted butter and let it soak in for 10 minutes or so. Then apply the butter- it is delicious, and you don't have chunks of pungent garlic in some bits and not others. I halved the recipe. - 09 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
