Garlic Coriander Naan

This week I'm posting different varieties of naans for the theme Cooking with Naans in Blogging Marathon#38. Today I'm posting garlic naan.Naan is traditionally  cooked in a clay oven called Tandoor.It can also be prapared in oven and stove top..It usually prepared with yeast.But today I prepared naan without yeast.Contemporary I susbstituted baking powder,baking soda for the yeast. .Garlic naan on stove top is light and soft and garlic enhaances the taste and flavour

I added some coriander leaves blended well in this naan and made it an aromatic flavoured naan.I tried cooking in oven the other day.But, for me the naan cooked on stove top is more delicious than the oven one.I think stove top is the easiest way of cooking Naan.Naan are usually consumed dipping into soups like chicken soup,vegetable.
It can also be served with veg or non veg curry.
