Rob, I was going to go for the garlic powder/butter job - how would you recommend doing it with fresh garlic?

Suggest fresh sliced/chopped garlic of variable thickness, rolled directly on top of the naan (before stretching it) garp.  Another way to do it would be to pop some fresh garlic into the balls before rolling, although you may not get any thing like the roasted flavours of the first method.  In either case a light gloss of butter ghee to finish. I'm probably not the person to ask really though.   I tried Chris' method, got confused as to which way up/down things go, and burned most of them to a cinder.  It'll take me at least 6 months to clean the baked on crud off the tawa.  This is why I need some dropping off later. 

Rob  :)

Ok Rob. Too late to incorporate into dough but might try other method :)

I was going to take a pic of my balls.  But i suppose they're pretty much the same as everybody elses, other than size of course  ;D.  I'll do my David Bailey bit when the first little beauty (fingers crossed) comes off the tawa.  The first off will be a plain naan so i can assess the success (hopefully) of the recipe.  The next two will be garlic and coriander.  Finely chopped garlic with some coriander sprinkled over the naan when half rolled out and then rolled out fully.  I'll then smear garlic and rosemary oil over it and pop it on the cushion.  Then as per recipe.
Just checking out my steak and kidney pud recipe for tomorrow's dinner  :P

I suppose i'd better do something about tonight's curry as well to go with the naan.  Won't be bothering with rice  :)
So singe baby singe, the curry's getting better ..........

I suppose I better pop over to Asda and get some of their ready-made mini efforts. It's not fair!

Do yourself a favour and pop down to your naan bakery Bob 4 assorted naans for a£1  :) You know it makes sense
Ive got myself a small dilemma  Although my tandoor is working I do not fancy sticking my balls in a hot tandoor  :o :'(    ;D
No seriously I'm not experienced or confident enough to give it ago and wast my dough experimenting OK Ill try one as it will be on for some chicken tikka ( was meant to be lamb but no descent ones)
Also my tawa is non stick I wonder if I could use my cast Iron wok

Remind me to just make a few next time, instead of trying to make 15.

Out of the 15 balls, had 11 successes, 3 scrappers and, by the 15th ball I'd had enough and binned it.

Pictures to follow when I've cleaned up the mess

Garp, why didn't you simply freeze your balls?   ;D ;D

Latest efforts

Plain naan showing underside




And I pinched CH's garlic and coriander idea but put it into the dough then made back into a ball and rolled it out



Also did some with garlic powder/butter which were are very nice (sorry Rob).

What I need to do next time is use a cushion. I thought because I have a small tawa and naans are only about 7 inches, I'd be able to get them on the tawa no problem. Wrong!!

Next time I'm going for the cushion :)

Haha CH - yes, being in Scotland I should be used to freezing balls.

Scrappers - the first two didn't puff up well - think maybe tawa wasn't hot enough? after that, things went well until one didn't stick and fell on the flame (scrapper number three).

Good luck mate :)
