    Hell yes you do! You'll be able to use the top vent as a drink holder now. Put a straw in it and wah-lah! World's Biggest Coozy.

    Careful - the naan may end up outside the top vent once you're done :) looking forward to the results.

    You should just get the egg really hot then stick nann to the top of the outside of the dome.  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    The naan sucked. I didnt let it rise long enough, the egg didnt get hot enough and it was a little too thick. 

    I ended up adding a 18" stone on top just couse I could.

    I don't think Indians use yeast. Not sure but I'll check at lunch tomorrow. Looks good! When I was doing them I was sticking the shop vac hose on the outlet and jamming it in the lower vent.

    Is this lady Indian enough for you? LINK    I use her for most of my Indian recipes. 

    I did use the shop vac but I didnt clean the egg out and I dont think I had enough lump.

    I didn't use yeast. Wife got the recipe somewhere. I don't bake cause I can't follow recipes. You need a sh!tload of lump. Don't worry about the ash cause the shop vac will blow it out.

    They don't look too bad, IMO. A bit like pita pockets, but I'd still eat them . I know that you know what naans are suppose to be like, so you're probably being your own worst critic :)

    @Little Steven has a point about the yeast. Most of the naan recipes on the internet are Westernized, extrapolated from pizza dough recipes. Yeast is not a part of traditional baking in Southwest Asia or thereabouts. If you are a fan of Manjula's Kitchen (which I am), you'll notice that she's in a Western kitchen, so she's adapted her cooking somewhat. She has some awesome recipes, BTW. My fav naans in Houston are not made with yeast. Traditionally yogurt has been used for leavening things like naan or bhatura in India. yeast is not readily available in India, so many recipes use baking powder.  

    Also for some great Pakistani recipes, google Bajias Cooking.

    Looks like a cross between Indian nan and Mexican puffy taco. You may have created a new food.
    Honestly, i dont remember either Asha or Pusba using yeast when they made naan for the lab. I think i may have their recipes somewhere in my cookbook. If i can find it i will shoot it over to you.

    I am not sure they used wheat based flour either. Montgomery county had a wealth of Indian stores or someone was always going back to India bringing spices and other goodies they could not get in Maryland. (Us Texans did same thing. Always went home with a chili-to-bring back list.)
