Tawa Naan My Way …..


Naan is one of the most popular leavened Indian bread. Today I bring to you An Easy naan recipe which can be prepared at home on tawa , in no time .

This will make 6- 8 Naans


2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1tsp.baking powder
1 tsp.salt
1 tbsp.oil
1/4 cup yoghurt/ curd
1/2 cup water (warm)
melted butter for brushing

Method :

In a mixing bowl take the maida. Make a well in the centre. Add in the curd, baking soda, baking powder, salt, oil and mix it nicely.

Knead a soft and smooth dough using little amounts of warm water.

Cover and keep aside in a warm place for 2 hours allowing it to ferment.

After 2 hours make 7-8 equal sized balls of the dough. Dust the balls with dry flour.

Roll out the ball into a circle of 5-6 inch diameter with the help of rolling pin and flour for dusting.

Heat a tawa / griddle till very hot . Apply water nicely on the side of the naan which is to be put downwards.

When the bubbles start coming , then is the time to invert the tawa over the gas flame to cook the naan on the other side and to get those beautiful brown spots.

Make sure to keep the flames in control as we do not want charred or burnt naan .

Use a pair or tongs or a spatula to get the Naan out of the griddle .
Sometimes Naan don’t get unstuck by themselves .

Apply butter or garlic butter and serve hot .
