Can I Make "Naan"?


I love Naan! Whenever I get Indian food, I always get an extra order, haha! I made a Bombay inspired Burger and I thought it would be fun to eat it on Naan.


Anyways, I know it's made in a tandoori oven, which I don't have, but I saw this recipe on the Food Network from Aarti Sequeira where she uses a cast iron pan, so I thought I'd try it!

I just made a half-batch for myself.


What I used:

- 1 cup of flour

- 1 1/2 tablespoon of Greek yogurt

- 1/2 teaspoon of yeast

- 1 tablespoon of olive oil

- 1/16 teaspoon baking powder

- 1 teaspoon sugar

- 3/8 cup of hot water













I let the yeast get frothy by mixing it with water and half the sugar. I usually microwave water from the tap for 15-17 seconds. You don't want it to be too hot or it might kill the yeasties. However, I think if it's too cold that it won't activate them.


Then I added the yogurt and oil to it.


In the other bowl, I sifted some flour, baking powder.



Then I mixed them together and made the dough. You let it rest for 2 hours.




After 2 hours, it puffed up! I got a cast iron pan on the stove and put it on high.


Then I rolled out some pieces of dough.




Here is one in the pan!




















RESULT: Success! :)


We are good at this! The naan turned out well and tasted really good! As I mentioned above, I decided to make it because I was making a Bombay Burger. Photos below and check out that post.
