Garlic Butter Naan!!!

Hi guys!!!

Naan is a very popular Indian flat bread which is very commonly seen in most supermarkets abroad these days. During our weekly visit to the supermarket, I would look at the perfectly puffed up Naans and think that I should try making it at home. But it took really long for me to actually give it a go. The added advantage of making naans is that the dough does not require a lot of raising time thus making it a part of a quick but elegant meal!!!

Now lets see the recipe.

Yields 5 naans

All-purpose flour / Maida - 2 1/2 cups
Yeast - 1 tsp
Warm water - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Garlic - 4 cloves
Oil - 1 tbsp
Butter - as required


1. Add the yeast and sugar to the warm water and let it sit covered for about 10 minutes or till it turns frothy.
2. Now take the flour and salt in a wide vessel and start adding this yeast water little by little and mix it into a soft elastic dough. the dough has to be sticky now.
3. Finally add the oil and mix well. Keep this covered in a warm place for about an hour.
4. When the dough has risen, divide it into 5 equal sized portions. Preheat the oven to 240C in the broil mode.
5. Generously dust the counter with flour and start spreading the balls into tear shaped naans. Sprinkle the finely chopped garlic cloves over the entire naan.
6. Place the naan on a baking tray with foil and place it directly under the heat source. Cook it for about 2-3 minutes till brown spots appear and it starts to fluff up.
7. Now flip over the naan and cook for another minute and take it out of the oven and immediately spread the butter. Repeat the same with every naan.

Serve hot with any spicy veg or non-veg curry!!!
