Garlic Naan With Out Yeast

For this weeks blogging marathon I'm showcasing "Naan" recipes. Today I'm sharing recipe for "Garlic Naan with no yeast" . Check this Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#38.

Naan is a flat bread widely popular in many parts of the world. The basic recipe of naan uses yeast as a rising agent but in this recipe I replaced it with baking powder & soda. Naan can be flavored up with variety of ingredients to make more delicious & here I'm sharing one of those flavored Naan's with you all.

Garlic Naan
Prep Time-2hrs | Cook Time-15mins | Yields-10 naan's
2Cup maida
1/2Tsp baking powder
1/8Tsp baking soda
2Tbs yogurt
1Tbs milk
1/2Tsp sugar 
2Tbs butter @ room temperature
3Tbs minced garlic  
Few coriander leaves for garnish
Step Wise instruction see here.
- In a bowl mix yogurt, milk & sugar.
- Now add maida, baking powder, soda, salt & sugar.
- Knead it to form a dough by adding little water or as needed. Adjust salt if needed. 
- Keep this dough closed with a wet cloth. Allow it to sit for at least 1hr.
- Mix minced garlic & butter in a bowl.
- Now divide the dough in to 4 balls. Roll them using a rolling pin flat. 
- Add minced garlic & coriander to butter. Now apply butter on to one side of the flat bread & repeat the same with rest of the dough. 
- Heat a pan & when pan is hot lay a naan on the pan & close it with a lid . 
- You can see bubbles forming on the bread. Flip the bread & apply garlic butter to the cooked side.
- Now cook other side with out a lid. 
- Flip & check if the naan is done. Apply the garlic butter to naan & transfer it to a plate.
- Repeat the same with rest of the dough balls. 
- Serve warm & enjoy.
-Instead of garlic you can use sesame seeds, onion seeds.
