How to Cook Naan Flatbread

  1. Strain the flour into a bowl. Add the sugar and active dry yeast. Stir locally using a teaspoon, so that the sugar, yeast and some of the flour form an evenly mixed area. Add some of the warm water and mix some more.
  2. Add the remaining water and mix again. Let it rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the yogurt and mix all, then knead until you have a dough. Let it rest for 60 minutes.
  4. Spread some flour on your work surface and cut the dough in half. Flatten one half using your hands and the rolling pin.
  5. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the dough disc and poke a few holes in it using a toothpick.
  6. Cook until golden brown spots appear, then flip it over and cook more. Follow the same steps for the other dough half.
