Notes

More Tips for Making the Perfect 2-Ingredient Naan Bread:

Dough Consistency:
  • Slightly sticky:¬†This is the ideal dough consistency.¬†If it's too dry,¬†add a bit more yogurt.¬†If it's too wet,¬†add a sprinkle of flour.
  • Don't over-knead:¬†Knead just enough to bring the dough together.¬†Over-kneading will make the naan tough.
Rolling Out:
  • Lightly flour the surface:¬†This will prevent the dough from sticking.
  • Use a rolling pin:¬†Roll out the dough into an even circle,¬†about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Don't be afraid to stretch it:¬†The naan will puff up while cooking,¬†so it's okay to stretch it out a bit thinner than you think.
Cooking:
  • Heat the pan before adding the naan:¬†This will help the naan cook evenly and prevent it from sticking.
  • Medium heat is ideal:¬†Too high of heat will burn the naan,¬†and too low of heat will make it soggy.
  • Watch for bubbles:¬†Once you see bubbles forming on the surface of the naan,¬†it's time to flip it.
  • Cook for a few minutes per side, or until golden brown.
Tips for Flavor:
  • Brush with melted butter or olive oil:¬†This will add richness and flavor to the naan.
  • Sprinkle with chopped fresh herbs:¬†Cilantro,¬†parsley,¬†or mint are all great options.
  • Try different spices:¬†Cumin,¬†turmeric,¬†coriander,¬†or za'atar can all add a unique flavor to your naan.
  • Get creative with toppings:¬†Try naan with your favorite dipping sauces,¬†grilled meats,¬†or vegetables.
Storage:
  • Store leftover naan in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
  • You can also reheat naan in a skillet or microwave.
Making Ahead:
  • You can prepare the dough up to a day ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator.
  • Let the dough come to room temperature before rolling it out.
Troubleshooting:
  • Naan is too dry:¬†Add a bit more yogurt to the dough or brush it with melted butter or olive oil after cooking.
  • Naan is too tough:¬†Over-kneading the dough can make it tough.¬†Next time,¬†try kneading for a shorter period of time.
  • Naan is sticking to the pan:¬†Make sure the pan is hot enough before adding the naan.¬†You can also sprinkle a bit of flour on the pan.
With these tips and a little practice, you'll be making perfect 2-ingredient naan bread in no time!
