Hello everyone

Today I have a very easy yet delicious naan recipe which can be prepared on tawa and stove top. No need of tandoor but tastes even better than those we get in restaurants, soft and spongy till last bite. It's a hit recipe at my home and used to make it frequently on demand. Generally we think naan can only be prepared in tandoors but this will change your notion as look and taste of this naan is nonetheless best one . Recipe is given below and hope you will enjoy it.


Serves: 4-5
Time: 30-40 mins ( leaving resting time)


4 cup all purpose flour/ chapatti flour
2 cup yogurt (curd)
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp oil
Warm water as needed


First of all add all dry ingredients and oil. Mix well then add yogurt and using warm water make a soft dough like chapatti dough. Now apply some oil on the dough and let it rest covered at a warm place for 1 1/2 - 2 hrs.
Now take a small orange size dough and with help of dry flour , roll desired shape naan little thicker than chapatti. Now apply some water on one side of naan. Heat tawa on medium flame, place naan on tawa with water applied side downwards so that it get stick to tawa. Now let it cook till you see lots of bubbles on top and upper side starts looking dry. 

Now increase the flame to high and invert tawa to cook naan directly on flame. 

When you get desired brown spots then scrap naan from tawa.

 Apply some butter or ghee and serve hot.

Your hot naan is ready to serve with curry of your choice, believe me your tummy will fill but desire to have more will not. It's so tempting and addicting dish that the day I made it first time , I kept on craving for it again and again.
And if you don't have tawa with handle, no need to panick. After having bubbles on top just scrap it from tawa and with help of chapatti tongs ( chimta) cook it directly on flame as we do with roti or chapatti.
Keep adjusting flame as if your tawa become too hot then naan may get burn from down side.
You can use any flour , maida, chapatti flour or whole wheat flour. I used chapatti flour.
You can also make it stuffed one by filling stuffing of your choice.
Can also be made as flavored naan by adding garlic, coriander leaves, or onion seeds with butter on top.
So keep on experimenting with flavours and enjoy these heavenly delicacies.

These can also be prepared in advance and reheated at the time of serving, these become as fresh as directly from tandoor even after reheating. Hope to get all positive response from you all and expecting your comments and suggestions here, they meant a lot.

Happy cooking....
