How to Make Garlic Naan

Leavened flatbread which is has a melt in mouth texture but is flaky at the same time, very well completed with the flavor of garlic and saltiness of butter is garlic naan. This naan recipe doesn’t call for yeast. The garlic naan has been made without any oven still it has the texture as that of a naan prepared in tandoor. Naan is one thing I love to make at home. Because often at the restaurants, the naan is quite chewy and if the food is ordered, by the time naan reaches home, it has lost its texture. So, it is better to know how to make naan at home? Garlic naan can be served with dal tadka, malai kofta, butter paneer masala, etc. In this post, you will find the step by step pictures and video showing how to make naan?

What is naan made from?

Flour: Garlic naan is prepared using all-purpose flour (maida). It can be prepared with whole wheat flour or combination of both the flours but the texture will definitely differ.

Butter: Butter is used while making the dough of naan, also while rolling the naan. Further melted butter is brushed on the naan once it is ready.

Baking Powder: As already mentioned, this naan recipe doesn’t call for yeasts. Baking is the leavening agent used in this naan recipe.

Milk: Milk has been used to make the dough for naan. Water can be used instead of milk; however, milk gives much softer naan.

Garlic and coriander: Garlic and coriander are the main flavoring agents, along with, as mentioned above, butter. Finely chopped garlic is used.

Other ingredients: Salt, powdered sugar and oil too have been used.

How to make Naan?

Perfect naan should be soft. It should not be chewy or dry. It should be properly flavored. In order to make perfect naan the following points should be kept in mind:

  1. The addition of sugar gives a gorgeous color to naan.
  2. Milk should be used to make the thick for naan. It will make softer naan.
  3. Naan should be rolled properly. It should neither be too thick nor too thin.
  4. Kneading is the key. Very sticky dough is prepared for naan. The same is kneaded for a good 10-12 minutes. And then it becomes ready to make naan.
  5. It is important that the dough is allowed to rest for some time.
  6. Tawa i.e. skillet or pan can be used to make naan. It is very important that nonstick Tawa or pan is NOT used.

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!.
