Garlic / Butter Naan


Naan i just love to have in the restaurant, today i really wanted to go to a restaurant and have some but it was too late and i end up doing myself. I love garlic naan with paneer gravy, one of my favorite combo. I was just looking for the recipe and it was so easy and not so complicated. It was so much like making a pizza dough. And so tried it and it came out really well. My whole family liked it. Yum!! Let see this mouthwatering recipe....

Cuisine : Indian

Preparation time : 30 minutes

Cooking time : 3 minutes

Course : Main Course 

Main Ingredient : All Purpose Flour/ Maida

Ingredient :

All Purpose Flour - 4 cups

Yeast - 1 Packet

Milk - 1/2 cup

Oil - 2 tbsp

Salt - 1 tsp

Sugar - 1 tsp

Egg - 1 (Optional)

Preparation :

  • The dough should be fermented and only then we will get nice and spongy soft naan. So the first thing we are gonna do is to activate the yeast in a warm water. The water should be nice and warm, if it is hot then the yeast will die. So make sure the water is mild warm, add the yeast to the water and leave it for like ten minutes. Then you can see the foam in the water, that means the yeast is ready.
  • Now take the All purpose flour in a big bowl and make a dent in the middle and start pouring the yeast with water. Then add sugar, salt, milk, oil and one egg in the dent.
  • Now you can use a fork to beat the egg with the rest of the ingredient that is in the dent. When the liquid i nicely mixed, now you can make the dough.
  • The dough should be nice and sticky only then we can make soft naan. As we are not using Tandoori pan, the sticky dough will help.
  • Apply some oil in top of the dough and let it rest for like 15 minutes. Close the bowl a clean towel and place it in a warm place.
  • Then when you see the dough it must be doubled in size, this is when you have to beat the dough a little and make balls out of it. Now let the balls sit for a while.
  • Now you can preheat the oven at the highest, i did 500 deg Fahrenheit. 
  • Now roll the balls and make a shape that you desire, and place it in the baking pan. You can place two at a time.
  • Bake them for 2 minutes and then check if it is done, then turn it over and keep it for another 1 minute. Now the Naan is ready, apply some butter when it is hot. 
  • For Garlic naan, you have to chop some garlic and top them in the naan, before cooking.
  • If you don't have an oven, you can always do it in the stove top, you will get the same taste and texture. 
Serving with some curry will taste good, i made paneer curry
