Stuff to know
Add diced onions or chopped garlic to the dough.
Add a tablespoon nigel seed or sesame seed
Since this recipe uses yeast, the dough will have to rise until doubled in size before baking. The baking powder that is added to the dough will make the naan bread puff up during baking, especially when they are placed on a preheated baking tray.
