Naan is a round flatbread made of white flour(maida). It bears a resemblance to pita, but is softer in texture. Naans are traditionally cooked in a Tandoor.  It can also be made in your oven at home. Serve this delicious bread hot, with Non Veg or any Punjabi gravy. The dough for Naans needs to be made in advance so factor that into the preparation time.

The first thing which we use to order in restaurants in Mumbai was this hot from tandoor naans. The best combination I like is paneer makhanwala and hot naans. This is the best naan ever I had, fresh from our own oven.


2 cups All purpose flour

1 tsp Yeast

¾ cup Warm water

¼ cup Milk

2 ½  tsp Yogurt

1 tsp Sugar

Pinch of Baking Powder

1 tsp Salt

For Butter Naan: Melted Butter

For Garlic Naan: Minced Garlic

For Chat Naan: Chat Masala


In a bowl mix warm water and yeast. Add milk to it and keep it for 10 minutes. In a mixing bowl, mix all dry ingredients and yogurt. Add yeast mixture and knead into dough. Keep this dough aside for four hours. The dough will rise. Pre- heat the oven at highest or 500 F for 20 minutes. Now make balls and roll into naan oval shape or simply pull it to form shape. Bake it nearest to flame in oven for 3 minutes or till u get golden brown spots. Flip it to bake both the sides equally. Apply butter to both the side. Serve it hot.

For garlic naan, sprinkle some of the minced garlic on top and roll before baking it. For chat naan, sprinkle some chat masala on top once baked. Enjoy!!!
