It’s always such a treat to go to my local Indian restaurant and order a stack of warm naan. Naan is definitely something all of my friends and family love but have never tried to make at home, until now! Naan is a lovely Indian style flat-bread that is made with yogurt, rolled out to a thin oval or round shape and popped on a hot grill or in a clay oven to crisp and bubble up. Before grilling, naan can be brushed with oil or butter and topped with all kinds of seasonings and herbs, it is seriously yummy! Remember the Crazy Dough Recipe I shared with you? It is one simple yeast dough from which you can get a variety of completely different breads, from homemade pizza dough, cinnamon rolls and even a cheesy bread loaf. All you need is one easy, Crazy Dough Master Recipe. This dough is a classic bread dough made from flour, water and yeast, but with the addition of a few extra things this dough is super flavorful and extra moist. Because this dough includes rich yogurt I knew it could easily be transformed into a delicious Naan. All you have to do is divide my basic Crazy Dough Recipe into a few small balls and roll them out with a rolling pin (or wine bottle if you don’t have a rolling pin!). Heat up your favorite grill pan or large saute pan and pop it in the hot pan for just 3 minutes per side. Make sure to cover your Naan with a metal bowl or cake tin to let the steam do the work creating lovely bubbles in your Naan. This dough cooks up into the most amazing naan bread, crispy and chewy no different that any other naan recipe. I love to keep naan in the freezer to dip in all kinds of things or serve alongside my favorite curried dished and homemade tagines! Want even more Crazy Dough Recipes?
