Butter Naan

Naan are flat leavened bread made from wheat flour. These North Indian breads are often baked in a tandoor. But we can bake these breads in our frying pan. All the ingredients are easily available and can be found in our kitchen. I found this recipe on Pinterest  'Foodista' and have simplified the steps of making these naans.


(A) 120 ml water
       80ml plain yoghurt
       4 tbsp canola or corn oil
       1 egg
       1tbsp sugar
       1/2 tsp instant yeast
       1 tsp salt

(B) 320 gms plain flour

(C) 2 tbsp of butter , melted


Mix (A) ingredients in a bowl. Mix well.
Add in flour and mix to a dough, if dough is wet add some flour to knead to a smooth dough.
Leave aside for 1 hour , covered with a damp cloth.
After one hour, punch the dough down.
Divide dough into 8 pcs. Using a rolling pin roll each dough into an oval shape about 6 - 7 inches long and 1/4 inch thick.
Brush with butter on both sides.
Heat up a frying pan over medium fire. Place the naan on the pan.
Cover the pan and bake for 1 min.You will see bubbles forming on the naan.
Flip over and cook another 1 - 2 mins until cooked.
Remove and covered naans with tea towels.
Repeat with the rest of the dough.
Serve with Keema or Mutton Marsala.
