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.
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:
