homemade naan

I love Aarti Sequeira’s show on Food network. So when I stumbled upon her naan recipe (one of Nick and I’s favorite things to eat), I was eager to try it! I exchanged 1 cup of reg flour for 1 cup of whole wheat.

It was very easy and absolutely fabulous.

4. After 2-3 hours, divide the dough into 6-8 balls. Flour a surface and roll out each ball as thin as you can (without ripping a hole). Preheat a skillet.  Sprinkle water on the flattened dough. Place on skillet for 3-5 min per side. Sprinkle each side with sea salt.
