Butter Naan

Butter Naan a butter flavored flat bread is one of the most extremely delicious dish of Indian bread.This usually made in clay oven called Tandoor. But, it can also be made  on stove top or our regular oven.Most of the time when we go to restaurants we keep ordering butter naan.Now first time i thought of preparing it in the home.

I cant believe I tried all basic  varieties at home.As everything came out well,it gave me more encouragement to try more new-recipes.This time I have tried using yeast in the oven method.It turned out well,and has the melt in the mouth flavor and texture.


  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  •  Pinch of baking soda
  • 3/4 cup of lukewarm water
  • 2 tablespoons of oil
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons of yogurt


  • Take a small bowl with lukewarm water ,dissolve yeast  in it.Keep it aside, sit for 10 mins until the mixture becomes frothy
  • Add sugar,salt,baking soda to the flour,mix well.Then add oil,yogurt to the dough.
  • Add yeast water mixture.knead the dough until smooth
  • Cover the dough and keep in a warm place 3to 4hrs,until double it's volume
  • Preheat the oven to 500F (maximum temp).when it reaches the temperature ,turn the oven to high broil.
  • Now knead the dough for about 1 to 2 mins and divide into 5 to 6 equal parts,
  • Roll each piece of dough into oval or triangle shaped. Dust the surface lightly with the flour while rolling.
  • Slightly wet your hands and flip the rolled naan between your palms,Place two naan on your baking tray and put it into the oven.
  • Naan will take 2 to 3 mins to cook depend upon our oven.Flip the naan other side just for 1 min.
  • Take out the naan from the oven and brush lightly with butter .
  • After few mins continue the same process for the next naan.
  • Have the naan with your favorite curry.
