I love naan bread.  What shocks a lot of people is that it’s easy to make at home — it just takes a hot oven (or grill).  I thought I’d try this naan bread recipe since so many said it was exactly like you get in an Indian restaurant.

This recipe was really good — it was a bit sweeter than usual.  I think next time I’d reduce the amount of sugar.  The trick to making naan look like what you get in a restaurant is to grill it (or bake it) watching the dough carefully so it doesn’t get too brown and crunchy.

Since I didn’t have a grill, I heated my oven stone to 500 degrees.  Then I placed the pieces of flattened dough and baked for 3-5 minutes until brown.  The dough was chewy and delicious.

I do think this recipe beats this one for bread machine naan.
