This homemade Naan flatbread is the most delicious buttery flatbread you will ever try. Naan is traditionally made in Tandoori ovens, but using your stovetop should give you just as good results. This homemade bread recipe is good served with some chicken tikka masala or any other Indian dish where there is sauce to dip the Naan into. This simple bread recipe uses simple bread ingredients that you most likely have on hand like active dry yeast, flour, and Greek yogurt. This bread is nice when it is cooked until it is a golden brown. Brush with some melted butter, or rub the finished bread with a stick of cold butter.

The following are some simple tips that will help ensure your homemade bread success. When using active dry yeast for a bread recipe, you always want to make sure that the yeast is still viable. Start by following the package directions, which usually include dissolving some sugar in some lukewarm water. After adding the yeast, allow the mixture to sit for about 10 minutes, you will know if the yeast is still good if the yeast bubbles up. If no reaction occurs, your yeast is not active, and the bread or rolls will not rise, so you want to get some fresh yeast. You will also want to remember to follow the directions properly if you add too much flour to your homemade bread recipe, the resulting bread will be too heavy and dense. You can also add the flour gradually until you get the desired texture of dough that you want. You also want to be mindful about how much flour you add to the kneading surface, by adding as little as possible. You can also use a pastry scraper as you knead the bread dough to help pick up any bits that might stick to the surface. You want the bread dough to be still slightly sticky when it is fully kneaded, it might leave the dough a bit trickier to work with, but it will give you the best results. When checking to see if your bread is baked, you can do so by inserting a skewer or a cake tester into the middle of the bread. If the skewer comes out clean, it is ready. Another way to check if the bread is done is to use an instant-read thermometer. To use a thermometer, put it into the center of the homemade bread, and if the temperature has reached 190 degrees Fahrenheit, then you know the homemade bread is ready. Once your homemade bread is baked, you want to remove it from the bread pan immediately and place it on a wire cooling rack to cool. This will give allow the air to circulate the bread and the bread crust from becoming soggy.
