When I write my usual curry recipes, I mostly recommend roti or naan or both. Naan is a really great tasting Indian bread and makes the taste of many curries just multi-fold. It goes well both with vegetarian and non-vegetarian recipes and is one of the most ordered bread in Indian restaurants. It is in fact also served in most international markets and talking to foreigners and expats is one of their favorites as well. Did you know you too can make a yummy naan bread at your home like I made this Butter & Garlic Naan. You also don’t need any special appliance or cooker to make it, I just make it using my regular roti tava by turning it around and baking the bread directly over the gas flame. I’ve always got tremendous reviews whenever I serve it to my guests. Give it a try and see how easy it is with this Butter & Garlic Naan Recipe
All you need is (serves 4 )
Maida – 4 cup
Baking powder – 1 tsp
Baking soda – 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Sugar – 1 tbsp
Milk – 1/2 cup
Dahi – 1/4 cup
Garlic – 4 tbsp ( finely chopped )
Butter – 4 tbsp ( melted )
Butter & Garlic Naan Recipe
Mix the dahi, baking powder, soda, sugar with maida in a bowl.
Knead it into a soft dough with milk.
Keep the dough in a bowl greased with oil and keep aside for an hour.
Make small balls of the dough and roll into a circle.
Brush it with oil and fold it twice into 1/4th circle, oiling both folds.
Spread some chopped garlic and roll this over them into a naan shape so the seeds stick to the bottom.
Heat a tava.
Apply water on top surface of the rolled naan and put on to the tava so the seeds side face up.
Turn the tava upside down so the naan is cooked over the flame for 20-30 sec.
Brush with melted butter.
Remove and serve hot with your choice of Indian curry.
