There are certain advantages for preparing naan at home, the main one being the fact that you will never feel over optimistic about it, as a result of which you are never too disappointed about the outcome. Try out this naan.



1. All-purpose flour-2 cups

2. yeast (Dry) -1 teaspoon

3. sugar-1 teaspoon

4.salt-1 teaspoon

5. ghee or melted butter- 4 teaspoon

6. yoghut-2 teaspoon

7. water-2/3 cup

8. Sesame seeds -1tspn


1.Mix water with the yeast and sugar until the yeast is dissolves.

2.Sift flour and salt together into a bowl and add the yeast mixture, half of the ghee and the yogurt. Mix to form a soft dough, then knead on a floured surface for about 5 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic.

3. Place the dough in a large greased bowl, cover and let stand in a warm place for 1 hour or until the dough doubles in size.

4.Punch down the dough and knead for 5 minutes. Divide dough into lemon sized balls Flatten the dough using a rolling pin, or by hand (I prefer the second method, for the very rustic look it provides). Top with sesame seeds or any other topping of your choice. Brush grill pan with oil, wipe it with a piece of cloth.

5. Bring it to medium heat, and keep the flattened dough over it, wait till it unevenly puffs up (3-4 min).Brush some melted butter or ghee on 5 or 6 random spots. .

6.Turn it over, cook for 2-3 more minutes, or till the spots are browned enough. Quickly transfer it to a clean kitchen towel and keep it wrapped. Serve hot brushed with ghee or melted butter.
