What is Butter Naan?

Butter Naan is an Indian flatbread made up of all-purpose flour, oil, and milk. It is crisp from out outside and absolutely soft and pilowy from within. It is a great bread to be served with gravies such as butter paneer masala, dal makhani, etc. Next time when you make any rich gravy do try this recipe. Generally, yeast is used for the recipe. But I believe not everyone likes or knows to use yeast. Therefore this recipe omits it. Often eggs are added for the perfect texture but this is an eggless recipe. I have shared a technique that will give perfect charred effect to the naans without the use of any tandoor.

Let’s talk about the Ingredients for Butter Naan Recipe

It calls for all-purpose flour. Since this is a no yeast and eggless recipe, I have used little baking powder which works as the leavening agent. Milk has been used to form the dough for butter naan. Other interesting ingredients required are time and efforts. You will have to knead the dough with the heels of your palm. This would develop the gluten and make it perfect for awesome butter naans. This is the basic naan recipe and can be extended to make garlic naan etc. Another yeast-free butter naan recipe that is very popular on the blog is given here. This recipe uses a combination of yogurt and baking soda and gives the most awesome naans. Also, there is a recipe for instant whole wheat naan. You can view it here. Wheat naan is a healthier take on the butter naan, although there is a difference in the texture.

Butter naan can be served with malai kofta in white gravy, kachumber raita, and lachcha pyaaz for a perfect weekend dinner.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
