This Naan recipe is as close as I've tasted outside of an authentic Indian restaurant.


1 package active dry yeast; .25 oz
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup Granulated sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 egg; beaten
2 teaspoons Salt
4 1/2 cups bread flour
1/4 cup Butter; melted

Original recipe makes 14 Servings



1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand about 10 minutes, until frothy. Stir in sugar, milk, egg, salt, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead for 6 to 8 minutes on a lightly floured surface, or until smooth. Place dough in a well oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and set aside to rise. Let it rise 1 hour, until the dough has doubled in volume.

2. Punch down dough. Pinch off small handfuls of dough about the size of a golf ball. Roll into balls, and place on a tray. Cover with a towel, and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.

3. During the second rising, preheat grill to high heat.

4. At grill side, roll one ball of dough out into a thin circle. Lightly oil grill. Place dough on grill, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until puffy and lightly browned. Brush uncooked side with butter, and turn over. Brush cooked side with butter, and cook until browned, another 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from grill, and continue the process until all the naan has been prepared.

Very good naan. I made the dough in my stand mixer and cooked it on my George Forman grill. It turned out perfect and was a delicious addition to our main course of Lamb Rogan Josh.

I also fried this in a pan stovetop. Very good naan bread.

Easily the best naan I've had outside of a restaurant, and the best I've ever made. I've been looking for a go-to naan recipe, and this is it until further notice. I did it in a frying pan and used a lid to keep as much heat in as possible. You really have to crank the gas on this, but it's worth it.

This can also be made inside if you do not have an outdoor grill. Just use a stovetop two-sided griddle/grill. Use the ribbed side. If you like your naan with a garlic flavor, add 2 teaspoons of minced garlic when you punch the dough down at step 2. [I posted this recipe.]
