Soft, puffy and airy Garlic Naan topped with minced garlic and melted butter. Make this skillet naan bread on stove top. The recipe is so easy, hassle-free and delicious!
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 all-purpose flour to a flat surface and make a well in the middle. Add the yeast mixture, yogurt, oil and 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 stove top 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 spin. Sprinkle and press some minced garlic and chopped cilantro leaves on the top surface of the dough.
Heat up a cast-iron skillet over high heat and lightly grease the surface with some oil. Place the dough (with the garlic and cilantro side up) on the skillet. When the naan dough puffs up, bubbles and burnt spots appear , flip it over and cook the other side. Repeat the same until all dough are done.
Brush the naan with some melted butter and serve warm.
