I wanted a nice naan recipe to go with my Butter Chicken. Finally chose the recipe from  Hebbars Kitchen. The first time I made this recipe, my stove was a mess. This was because I started to brush the naan with the garlic butter before I turned the tawa over the flame! All the garlic started dropping from the naan directly onto the flame. Man!! Was it difficult to clean up!

Realized my mistake and the next time around, I finished making the naans first and then brushed the hot naans with the garlic butter. Turned out perfect. Love the consistency of the dough.............. and its softness is beautiful!! The original recipe calls for 1 cup all purpose flour. But I did half all purpose flour and half wheat flour! Just coz it makes you feel better..................:D This recipe is defintiely a keeper! You can brush the tops of the naan with plain butter too.........

Iv made whole wheat naans before using yeast. They were also good. But I personally prefer the ones without the yeast. These naans go perfectly well with Butter Chicken/Murgh Makhani , Paneer Butter Masala, or Lahsooni Methi Paneer and many more............

All purpose flour - 1/2 cup , more for rolling
Wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 3/4 tsp
Yoghurt - 2/3 cup
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp

Garlic butter:
Butter - 3 tbsps
Garlic, minced - 1 clove
Fresh coriander leaves, chopped - 1/2 tbsp

  • Mix the flours, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt.
  • Add in the yoghurt and mix to form a dough. You might need to add in more all purpose flour if the dough is too sticky to handle. No need to knead. 
  • Just brush the tops with the oil and cover with a damp cloth. Rest for about 1 hour.
  • Make 5 balls (about the size of a lemon)
  • Dust your table top with flour and using a rolling pin, roll the dough out into an oval shape . It must be neither too thin or too thick. Again use more flour if dough sticks to the rolling pin.
  • Heat a tawa. Take the rolled out dough and brush it with water. Put it on the tawa, Water side down. (the water will help the dough to stick to the tawa.
  • Turn the tawa over so the dough is in direct contact with the fire. 

  • You can see brown spots on the naan.
  • Turn it over and then turn the naan over the other side so that it browns the other side too.. brush both side with the garlic butter and serve.
  • for the garlic butter:
  • melt the butter and mix in the garlic and coriander leaves
