It might be too little water. 1/2 cup water to 2 cups flour does sound like not much. I will look up some of the naan bread recipes that I have made in the past to see how much water I used. Hopefully you will have a better success next time. Cooking is all about practice :)

Yes, needs more water (1 1/2 cups) Recipe is too basic. Yeast should be added to warm water first.

Closer to 1 cup of warm water mixed with heat that is.
