  • 2 cup maida / plain flour
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • ¼ cup curd / yogurt
  • 1 tsp garlic grated
  • water for kneading

for garlic butter:

  • 3 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 tsp garlic grated
  • 2 tbsp coriander finely chopped


  • firstly, in a large mixing bowl take 2 cup maida, ¼ tsp baking soda and 1 tsp baking powder and ¾ tsp salt. mix well.
  • add 2 tbsp oil, ¼ cup curd and 1 tsp garlic.
  • mix well making sure everything is well combined.
  • further, add water as required and knead to a smooth and soft dough.
  • grease the dough with oil, cover and rest for 2 hours.
  • meanwhile prepare garlic butter by mixing 3 tbsp butter, 1 tsp garlic and 2 tbsp coriander.
  • after 2 hours, knead the dough slightly. to remove if any air present in the dough. pinch a ball sized dough.
  • gently roll to oval shape using a rolling pin. make sure you do not make too thin nor thick. and also keep the size in mind. it should not be larger than your tawa size.
  • grease with water over naan. make sure you coat uniformly. this helps naan to stick on tawa.
  • furthermore, slowly flip over and put it on hot tawa. remember, be gentle and put the water coated side down to tawa. also do not use nonstick tawa.
  • slightly press. this helps the naan to stick on to the tawa and when you flip the tawa upside down it will be intact.
  • now after a minute, flip the tawa upside down and cook naan directly on flame till they turn golden brown.
  • also brush with some prepared garlic butter mixed with coriander leaves.
  • gently scrape the naan from the bottom and remove.
  • finally, serve garlic naan hot with your favourite curry like mattar paneer.
