I was after an actual recipe for naan bread. Bit surprised to find this as a 'recipe'

I'm not being funny, but it is a bit disappointing when I look for a recipe for naan to find so many that have naan in the ingredients list! Not sure I'd call that a recipe?

So easy and tasty. Use instead of garlic bread, for a change.
