  • Lightly dust your work surface with flour. Divide the dough into 4-6 equal pieces and use a rolling pin to flatten and stretch out.
  • Heat up a heavy bottomed or cast iron skillet (with a lid, preferably a glass lid) over high heat. Brush one side of the naan with water and place in the skillet, water side down.

  • Cover the pan and cook for 30 seconds, then check it to see if has started to bubble and rise. If it has, use a pair of tongs and take it off the pan and cook the uncooked side over direct flames until it starts to char. Alternatively, flip and cook the pan until it starts to brown.

  • When the naan is browned on both sides, brush with a bit of melted butter and sprinkle on chopped cilantro. Repeat with the remaining dough. Enjoy warm.
