Hi LC is 25 tsp sugar correct.
Thanks.

Hi Unclefrank, no less than (20)was advised (25)was written down for the recipe. I used about (23) but I wouldn't use less than (20).

Thanks.

Interssting the addition of Yeast in (a few) nan recipes- do I remember wrongly, was H4ppy's nan intentionally a yeastless recipe? Yet if it's that imoprtant-

Good point. The h4c recipe I used today was from youtube and didn't use any yeast. Does h4c have another recipe which does use yeast? If so, which one is more famous or popular?

Pretty sure Chris' recipe is non yeast but Curry Road Julian did both.
Interesting that this recipe is only about 60% hydration.

The yeast will love 125 grams of sugar.
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

Afternoon Naan lovers  8)

There was a question suggesting I didn't show the inside of the Naan, also that it might look like a crumpet  ;D ;D

Ok froze all my portioned dough last night so popped one out to defrost at 8am.
Ready for cooking by 1.30, absolute delight to eat this Naan. Soft, light and just tasty on its own.
Enjoy 8)

Thanks for posting that LC. Doesn't look too bad in the middle but, still a bit pancakey for me (no offence intended).

You've tried H4ppy and this one....what would you say are the differences?

You don't say how many naans this dough is likely to make. What is the sweetness like given that a tsp of sugar is  at least 4g of sugar, which with more flour brings it more in line with what I use in Chris's.

I'd give it a go but will wait for more reports mate first  :)

Thanks for putting your recipe up, LC. I can't get anywhere near the sort of restaurant or T/A naans I'm used to up here, so I'll give yours a go for the weekend's curry and see how it turns out. Flatbreads of most kinds I can manage, but a soft, chewy, fluffy naan is beyond me so far. Maybe a tandoor beckons... :)

Yeast feed on sugar to produce ethanol and CO2.  Can't make alcohol without sugar and yeast.

And finally, a naan I'm pleased with. There is still plenty of room to improve though but at least it was a forward step this time.

Glad your pleased Livo!
Looks real good, technique will do the rest.

For those asking, makes 10 x Naan breads.

Thanks LC
