Author Notes: I love naan, and adding some tasty garnishes only makes it better. You can easily make this without the garlic and cilantro, if you wish.Erin McDowell

Makes: 6-8 pieces

  • 1 lb all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 (7 g) package yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp melted butter, plus more for brushing
  • kosher salt, as needed for garnish
  1. In a medium bowl (or use a mixer with a dough hook) combine the flour, salt, garlic, cilantro, and yeast. Add the water, yogurt, and butter slowly and mix to combine. Knead the dough for 5-6 minutes (3-4 in a mixer).
  2. Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl and allow to rise until double in size, about 45 minutes - 1 hour.
  3. Divide the dough into equal pieces (6-8 depending on the size you want). Use flour as needed to keep the dough from sticking.
  4. Heat a large saute pan over medium high heat. Brush the rolled out dough with the butter, and cook until browned lightly on each side, 1-2 minutes per side. Finish with a sprinkling of salt. Keep warm until ready to serve.
