Tandoori Naan Recipe

Tandoori Naan is a popular Indian bread that is soft, fluffy, and slightly charred. It is traditionally cooked in a tandoor (clay oven), but can also be made on a stovetop or in an oven. The dough is made with flour, yogurt, yeast, and a pinch of sugar for fermentation. The naan is then rolled out, brushed with ghee, and cooked until puffed up and golden brown. Serve it hot with curries or use it as a wrap for kebabs or grilled meats.
