Naan - A Flat Bread

For this weeks blogging marathon I'm showcasing "Naan" recipes. Today I'm sharing recipe for "Naan". Check this Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#38.


Naan is a flat bread made using flour, yeast, yogurt & milk. To make a naan one might have a tandoori oven. As a replacement you can use a oven or stove top pan method in making this bread. I made this dish using a stove top pan method & it is one of the easiest methods to make too.

-  Sift flour & baking powder in to the yeast mixture . - In another bowl mix yogurt, oil & salt. Whisk them together & add them to the flour bowl.

Making Naan: 
- Divide dough in to equal balls. Now take a dough ball & dust it with flour.
- Using a rolling pin roll the dough flat. Sprinkle few seasame seeds & roll it. 
- Repeat the same with rest of the dough. 
- Heat a pan & brush some butter to the pan & place the rolled naan. Close it with lid. 
- You can see bubble's on top of the naan. Brush some butter & flip naan. You can see it is cooked perfect & you can also see brown strains.
- After few seconds flip & check if the naan is cooked. You can see few brown spots on the other sides. 
- Brush some butter & transfer it to a plate. 
- Repeat the same with rest of the dough. 
- Allow the dough to raise for more than 2hrs.
