  1. Place yeast, flour, salt, water, and clarified butter in bread machine pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough setting. At the end of the first kneading, remove the dough from the machine. Allow to rest for ten minutes.
  2. Place a 13 x 9 inch baking pan on the bottom of the oven. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).
  3. On a lightly floured work surface, cut dough into four equal parts. With a lightly floured rolling pin, roll each piece to a 1/4 inch thick free-form circle. Cover with a clean kitchen cloth, and let rest 20 minutes.
  4. Lightly sprinkle tops with flour, and roll out as thin as possible.
  5. Place one naan face down on preheated baking pan. Bake 60 seconds. Remove from oven. It will still be white, although it may have a couple brown spots like a flour tortilla. Place on a large plate, and cover with a clean kitchen cloth to keep warm. Continue baking remaining naan. Serve warm with clarified butter for dipping.

A lovely recipe! I replaced ghee with garlic oil (same amount) and sprinkled the top with crushed garlic. Unfortunately, the bread was very tasteless (ghee gives it more taste I think), so next ...

I have made this wonderful receipe for my picky eaters and they love it. We serve it with gyro seasoned lamb and cucumber dressing ... YUM!

Made good tortillas but not fluffy naan. I don't own a bread machine, so I mixed the ingredients and then kneeded using a KitchenAid with a bread hook. Also didn't have clarified butter, so...

Naan? This makes a superb free-form flour tortilla. Definately not worth the trouble if you are really interested in making naan bread.

I never in a jillion years thought that I could make naan. It came out fantastic!! Good thing too, because the rest of my Indian-inspired dinner wasn't so great - so we basically ate all the n...

This is really easy and relatively quick to make, compared to other Naan recipes. Although not quite authentic, it is really good and even my picky daughter will eat.

I needed to cook the naan bread for about two minutes to achieve the right consistency. This would be wonderful served with curry!

okay for a substitute, but they did not taste or have the texture of naan. Presentation is still pretty good, though.
