my naan is none


New member
Any tips for making naan. I made my first attempt last night, but failed horribly. The dough was very sticky.... I can't figure out where I went wrong. Advice?

Welcome to the Forum! Glad you found us.

My only experience with naan is with eating it. :yum:

Naan resembles pita bread and, like pita bread, is usually leavened with yeast; unleavened dough (similar to that used for roti) is also used. Naan is cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven, from which tandoori cooking takes its name. This distinguishes it from roti which is usually cooked on a flat or slightly concave iron griddle called a tava. Modern recipes sometimes substitute baking powder for the yeast. Milk or yoghurt may also be used to give greater volume and thickness to the naan.
