Materials

For Naan Dough

  • 2 cups Maida (All Purpose Flour)
  • 1/2 cup Curd
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 1/2 tbsp Sugar
  • 4 cloves Minced Garlic
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

For Garlic and Herb Oil (Optional)

  • 1 1/2 tbsp Vegetable oil or olive oil as per preference
  • 2 cloves Garlic crushed
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp Dried Rosemary or Coriander

Instructions

For Garlic and Herb Oil

  • Mix all the ingredients as stated above. Stir the mixture well and keep it aside.

For Naan

  • In a large bowl add given amount of maida along with salt, sugar and baking powder.
  • Add curd and milk and knead the dough until a cohesive ball is formed. In case the dough is too sticky dust it with a little bit of maida.
  • Allow the dough to rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Separate the kneaded dough into small balls to roll out the Naan.
  • In a clean well dusted surface roll out the individual balls of dough. Add the required garnish (garlic, coriander(optional)) and run the rolling pin over the naan once to fix the garnishes to the dough.
  • Carefully turn over the rolled out naan and apply generous amount of water on the backside making sure that no portion of it is left dry.
  • Transfer the rolled out Naan with the watered side down on to a pan for toasting. Once you see little bubbles forming on the naan, take the pan and invert it upside down and hold it close to te flame until the naan is fully cooked.

  • Now brush the garlic and herb oil on top of the Naan and it is ready to be served.

Notes

The garlic and herb oil can be substituted with butter or if you are looking avoid fat, the naan tastes great even without these.
Incase you find your naan slipping  from the pan when you invert it, you can also hold the naan using a pair of tongs directly onto the flame.
The garnishes are not just limited to garlic or herbs, you can also add any cheese of your preference.
