"I made this to go with a curry dish my family was having, and thought it was great. I used my mixer rather than bread machine, and used sour cream as I didn't have any yogurt. This is a fantastic recipe. It has that chewy texture that I haven't been able to get from other naan recipes. Brushing with garlic butter takes this over the top!"

"Very good. The recipe does not say what to grease the large skillet with though--vegetable oil, olive oil, butter? I used butter flavored olive oil and it came out very delicious."

"This recipe was actually fabulous! I did add 4 tablespoons to the machine after four minutes in the dough cycle. It turned out very attractive and delish. However, I will sprinkle lightly with Kosher salt after cooking the next time I make this."
