Naan bread

Just made garlic naan bread and as usual it was perfectly acceptable for eating but not really like a naan should be. Mine is like bread in the centre and generally quite crusty. I think it should be much softer and elastic.

My recipe today was plain flour, yogurt, dried yeast, sugar, black onion seeds, chopped garlic in oil.

Started the yeast in warm water and sugar

Added to flour with extra warm water and tablespoon of yogurt, added black onion seeds. Knead well. Dough was on sticky side. Leave couple of hours to rise. Shape and roll garlic into top.

Place 2 heavy cast iron baking trays into oven at 500 degrees and bake naans for 10 mins or so.

Except for not cooking in a tandoor what am I doing wrong.

Mike

Do you mean Naan? If so ask a Mod to correct the title.

I buy them already made in Costco. Very good. We use ours mainly for small pizzas.

I’ve only made naan once. I used this recipe, from Food Network’s Aarti Sequeira. They came out very nice, but I’ve never made them again because making them smoked up my house too badly. If I’m going to make an Indian bread for my curry, as opposed to buying it, I prefer to make chapatis. There’s no yeast, and the pan doesn’t have to be quite as hot.
