Cheesy Garlic Naan – homemade naan topped with garlic and cheddar cheese. Cheesy, buttery, garlicky naan that you can’t stop eating.
In a small bowl, add the sugar, warm water, and yeast together. Stir to combine well. The yeast should be activated when it becomes foamy, about 10 minutes. Transfer the flour to a flat surface and make a well in the middle. Add the yeast mixture, yoghurt, and oil, knead the dough until the surface becomes smooth and shiny, about 10 minutes. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rise in a warm place (for example: beside the stovetop or warm oven). The dough should double in size, about 1 hour.
Divide the dough into 8 equal portions. Roll the dough to a 8” circle using a rolling pin.
Heat up a skillet (cast-iron preferred) over high heat and lightly grease the surface with some oil to avoid the dough from sticking to the skillet. Place the dough on the skillet. When it puffs up and bubbles and burnt spots appear, flip it over and cook the other side. Repeat the same until all dough are done.
Mix the melted butter (warm it up in the microwave for a little bit) and add the garlic. Stir to mix well.
Brush the naan with the garlic butter generously, then top each naan with some cheese. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve immediately.
If the dough is sticky, add extra 2 more tablespoons of flour to bind the dough.
