Good luck CH. Didn't realise you were doing it on electric hob.

I'm sure I don't need to tell you this but could work after flipping and holding very close to the ring.
Well Garp, it's got two options.  I suspect the flame is only to colour and finish the bread anyway, the real cooking having been done by the application of the naan to the very hot tawa.  All else fails, out with the portable  ;D  I will have decent home BIR naan with my curry  >:(
So singe baby singe, the curry's getting better ..........

You're right bud, in one respect. The bottom is cooked by the heat of the tawa, but without the heat on the other side, it's going to end up like a scone. In Chris's video the naan is only on the tawa for ten or fifteen seconds before turning over.

Having tried it, I think that the flame is not only to finish and colour the bread, but is crucial in the cooking process.

Good luck and have a Very Happy New Year

See where you're coming from Garp.  But that tawa is extremely hot and will continue to cook when inverted with the heat going through the base of the bread into the rest of the naan.  I'll let you know how i get on, with or without the  camping stove back up plan.
All the best to you and yours for the coming New Year mate.

I also made this naan this evening and I agree this was bloody brilliant. Whenever I have followed anyone elses recipe I have ended up with a piece of cardboard but these were lovely and soft providing the pan isn't too hot to begin with and you don't over singe them when you turn over. (I havn't got a tawa I have got a large iron frying pan but it worked very well indeed.) I love the cushion method, I used a folded up pair of well padded oven gloves and a couple of tea towels wrapped in another tea towel which did the job a treat. I can really see how it works by stopping the dough springing back before it hits the pan. I think taste wise there is a little room for improvement but the higher than normal sugar levels give it a better flavour than many recipes doing the rounds. Well done to H4ppy Chris. I'm really looking forward to this ebook of his.  8)

PS Happy New Year to all!
