naan recipenaan recipe | butter naan recipe | homemade naan bread recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. typically naan bread recipe is prepared with cultivated yeast which would yield a elastic and soft dough. however, in this recipe combination of baking soda and baking powder is used which would yield same result. later it is rested for couple of hours which is then rolled to oval shaped bread and baked in tandoor oven or tawa.

i have already shared few of other indian bread or naan recipes, however this is the simplest and most popular naan recipe. i prepare the butter naan recipe quite often and i prepare it with either tawa using it upside down or in a cooker by sticking it side. i even did try preparing it in oven but i always fall back to tawa option by cooking it upside down. but certainly it is not a match to traditional tandoor based naan bread recipe. further i even extend this recipe to stuff it with mashed potatoes which has a similar characteristics to aloo kulcha yet has a subtle variation.

while homemade naan bread recipe is extremely simple, yet few tips and suggestions for a perfect butter naan recipe. firstly, the key to a perfect soft and chewy texture is by kneading it properly. basically more you knead it to smooth dough, the butter naan would be more pleasing. secondly, once the dough is kneaded it has to be placed in a warm place for proper fermentation. optionally you can also keep it in a pre heated oven if you are living in a cold climate area. lastly, you can easily prepare butter garlic naan by mixing the chopped garlic to melted butter and than applying to the cooked naan.

notes:

  • firstly, knead to smooth a soft dough else naan will be chewy.
  • applying water is mandatory. this helps naan to stick to tawa and can reverse the tawa and cook directly on flame.
  • in addition, you can also use oven or tandoor to bake the naan instead of tawa. but never use nonstick tawa as it slips while reversing.
  • furthermore, roll to any desired shape. however, i like to keep it oval as it looks similar to the one served in restaurants.
  • finally, butter naan can be turned to butter garlic naan by adding chopped garlic to butter.
