For the Naan

  • Add all the ingredients mentioned above, knead the dough for 10 minutes.
  • Cover and let the dough rest for 2 hours in warm place.
    Tip: Use the microwave oven, while it is switched off
  • After 2 hours, knead the dough slightly to remove any air present in it.
  • Take a ball sized dough and using a rolling pin, gently roll the dough into an oval shape. The naan shouldn't be too thin or thick. Also, it should not be larger than the size of tawa.
  • Grease one side of the naan with water. It is important to execute this step properly and slowly. This will help the Naan to stick and not fall off
  • Heat a tawa on medium heat. Once it is hot, place the moist side of the naan on the hot tawa and press lightly.
  • After a minute, lift the tawa and flip it upside down, to cook the naan directly on flame till it is golden brown. Keep moving the tawa over the fire so that it gets evenly hot everywhere. Keeping it propped and not moving around may burn it. Check out the instruction video for the technique
  • Scrape the naan from bottom and remove it. Place on a plate and brush with some butter, plain. Set Aside. You may view the entire recipe for the Butter Garlic Naan by clicking here.
