Home-made Naan

Great accompaniment for any Indian meal, or for my flatbread recipe!


2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
Salt to taste
1/2 cup lukewarm milk
1/2 cup whole milk yogurt
1/2 tsp sugar
Butter as required

Sift the flour, soda and baking powder together to ensure even mixing. Transfer to a mixing bowl and make a well in the center. Pour the milk, sugar, salt and yogurt in it and mix after a minute softly to make a dough. Set aside for 1-3 hours. Make fist sized balls of the dough and dust it with the flour. Roll gently in the shape of a naan and mist with water on one side of it. Stick this side to a well seasoned griddle or fry pan and cook covered for 1-2 minutes. Bubbles will start coming up on the naan. Flip the naan, and when brown spots start appearing on it and is cooked, remove from the pan and apply butter as desired to it.

Makes approximately 4 to 5 naan flatbreads
