I have never made naan before. I liked it. The recipe was pretty straight forward and easy to follow. Although I cheated and used my mixer for the kneading instead of using my hands. I am a cheater like that. It's just against everything I believe in to knead things by hand with my mixer sitting right there, inches away, watching me. It just wouldn't be right. Not to mention my food processor and bread maker in close vicinity. Any or all of them could have easily been offended.
I was surprised how much flavor the green onions added with the small amount sprinkled on top just before baking. I thought it would be more of a garnish and it didn't seem like much. But it really infused the dough with flavor in just those few minutes of baking. I didn't have cumin seeds so I just sprinkled with ground cumin and if I made it again (which I will) I wouldn't change a thing. It's a delicious flat and chewy but fluffy bread and it only needs to rise once and bake (each piece) for 5-6 minutes. I think the possibilities are endless. I can see myself making this many different ways and loving it.
Before the rise

Always Add More Butter (which I totally agree with, butter is amazing)
