Another restaurant-style recipe which goes well with lots of curry-based dishes as well as dals. Garlic Butter Naan! The look and feel is that of a tandoor, but without a tandoor…. isn’t that great?! Easy once you get the hang of it. Go through the recipe and try your own permutations and combinations with spices, stuffings and herbs as well.
Garlic Butter Naan
- Prep Time
- Cook Time
- 8 naans
- Difficulty Level Moderate
- (5 /5)
- 1 rating
- 3 cups maida/refined flour
- 1 cup whole wheat ata
- 1 tsp garlic paste
- 1/2 tsp dry yeast
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1 tbsp black sesame seeds
- 1 tbsp cut coriander leaves
- butter as needed
- salt to taste
- 1 tbsp oil
- Take the maida, whole wheat flour, salt to taste, oil and garlic paste in a bowl. Mix well.
- To prepare the yeast, take 1/2 cup warm water and add the yeast and sugar to it. Mix well with a spoon till it dissolves. Keep aside for 10 minutes. The active yeast is then ready to be used.
- Mix the yeast into the flour bowl and knead into a firm dough with water as needed. Keep covered in a warm place for 2-3 hours.
- Divide the risen flour into 8 balls. Roll each ball with the help of some maida into a circle. Fold it over twice to make a triangle and roll. Sprinkle black sesame seeds and cut coriander on it and roll once more finally to make them stick firmly onto the naan.
- Heat an iron tawa. Turn the rolled out naan upside down and apply water on it liberally all over.
- Put the naan onto the hot tawa water side down. Turn flame to medium.
- After a minute or so you will see air bubbles popping out on top. Now take the tawa by the handle and hold it upside down directly over the flame so that the naan is contact with the flame. Check to see the brownness, taking care that the naan doesn't burn.
- Return the tawa to its original position and using a spatula, remove the golden naan from the tawa and onto a plate.
- Cut it into two pieces from the centre and apply butter on it. Watch the butter melt on the hot naan and serve it with the curry of your choice!
