  • 1 tbsp - oil
  • 2 tbsp - Butter
  • 1/2 cup - fresh curds

  • How to Make Indian Naan:

    1. Sieve together all the dry ingredients.
    2. Add butter, curd, oil and mix with fingers.
    3. When the dough resembles coarse breadcrumbs, add milk (a little at a time) till a soft pliable dough is formed.
    4. Cover first with a wet muslin cloth, then with a plate and keep aside for 5-6 hours.
    5. Knead dough lightly once more.
    6. Break off a piece, the size of a medium potato, and roll into a thick triangle.
    7. Place on a pre-warmed griddle (tawa).
    8. Apply some water on one side of the naan and place on griddle.
    9. Invert griddle and roast over the gas flame (or if available, use a barbeque with coal fire). It will fall off when done.
    10. Serve hot with a blob of butter on it.
