  • Add maida in a bowl and to that add salt, oil, half the amount of chopped garlic.
  • Add the yeast mixture prepared to it and start to knead. Keep adding little by little milk as you knead.
  • Add water only if required to get a very soft sticky dough. Cover and let it rest for 40 minutes.
  • Punch down dough and knead again till all air trapped in escapes out.
  • Pull out balls from the dough and dust the balls with dry flour. Using your hands just pull apart little by little to get the naan ready.
