Add remaining sugar, yeast mixture, butter, yogurt, and egg. Knead dough for ten minutes. brush with butter and let rise for 1 hour. Preheat your oven to the hottest temp.( Indian people bake this bread in a Tandoor oven which get very hot-600 degrees or more) and preheat your heaviest tray with it. Punch down and knead again. Divide into 6 portions and roll flat. As you roll out each naan, put it on the tray and bake in oven for about three minutes or so. The first time I made these, my oven broke so I made them on my gas grill with the chicken I was making and they came out great! They had a nice , slightly smoky flavor. This recipe came from Madhur Jaffreys Indian Cooking . You could find it in your local library- its a very good cookbook. From the RECIPEinternet: Recipes from Around the World recipe list.

Directions could use some formatting love, but it didn't stop the naan from turning out great. Will cook again.

First time I've made naan bread and it turned out great! 3 minutes on each side and they turned out delicious. Thanks.

So delicious. I was afraid to crank my oven as high as it would go, so I went with 450 and used my commercial grade half-sheet pans on the rack that sits about 1 inch above the bottom heating element. It only took 3-4 minutes on each side for perfection.

Great recipe. Left over dough can be put in fridge. Dough was nice and soft. I did 3 minutes each side in a 230deg Celsius oven. Delicios with garlic. Cooked one side 3 minutes and then turned over and spread margarine and garlic and baked another 3 minutes.
