  • Adjust the water according to sourdough starters being wet or dry; you need a sticky dough ( it is a little damper than other bread dough)

Uniqop`s advice
  • Naan Sangak is better served fresh and hot. If it has got cold, reheat it in the microwave.
  • Sesame seeds make a pleasant taste. But make sure that they are not overcooked. So they can taste bitter.
