The dough for this recipe can be made in advance and stored, covered in a refrigerator for up to 3 days before cooking.

As this dough needs to proof I suggest making this in the morning, ready for cooking in the evening.

Naans are leavened (made to rise), oven-baked flatbread found in the cuisines mainly of Western Asia, South Asia, Central Asia, Myanmar and the Caribbean

In a jug combine the sugar, egg, water and milk and stir gently until the sugar has dissolved.

Done
3 hours

Split the dough into 8 balls, dust them in flour and rest on a baking tray covered with cling film for another 3 hours

4
Done
5-10 minutes

Start heating the pan or tawa on full heat.

Iron tawa's are not non stick and are perfect for this recipe allowing a naan to be completely cooked in about 40 seconds)

(If you are using a frying pan or a non-stick tawa you will need to grill the top of the naan so heat your grill to its highest setting (250+) preferred.

Flour and stretch into the shape required then oil one side and add any flavoring you require such as sliced / crushed garlic and coriander

5
Done

Lift the naan and flip over your hand dab water on the other side (this will help it stick to the tawa and create steam to rise.

Flip onto the pan or tawa and cook for about 10 – 15 seconds on the bottom

-- using a tawa --
turn over and hold 5-6 inches from the flame and move slowly in a circular motion for about 20-30 seconds. It will quickly bubble and brown.

I have this one: https://amzn.to/35lzLLj

- using a pan --
slip the naan onto your grill and watch it bubble, takes about 1-2 mins under the grill
