Third step: making cheese naans

Once the dough has rested and the cheese is ready, It's time to assemble our naans:

  1. Divide the dough into 8 equal parts.
  2. Flatten each piece of dough into a circle on a floured work surface.
  3. Add the cheese to one side of the circle of dough and cover with the other side, thus forming a sort of cheese “slipper”.
  4. Lightly press the edges to seal the naan well and prevent the cheese from escaping during cooking.

Once the shaping is complete, let’s now move on to cooking our cheese naans:

  1. Preheat your oven to 220°C.
  2. Place the filled naans on a baking tray covered with baking paper.
  3. Bake for about 15 minutesuntil they are nicely browned.

Variation with pan cooking:

Depending on your preferences, you can also cook your cheese naans in a pan! For that :
