Ingredients

  • 3 cups - self-raising flour (maida)
  • 1 tbsp - oil
  • 2 tbsp - Butter
  • 1/2 cup - fresh curds
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp - baking soda (soda bicarb)

How to Make Indian Naan

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