  • Roll the ball to 8 to 9 inches long and 5 to 6inches wide depending on the size of the doughball.
  • Sprinkle kalonji seeds, sliced garlic andcoriander leaves. Press down or roll them gently.
  • When you are done with 5 to 6 naans, begin toheat a griddle or pan.
  • Ensure the pan is hot enough, then transfer the naan to it. Within a minute or so bubbles will be visible on top
  • With the help of a tong, flip it and cook either onthe pan or directly over the gas fire or stove. Orplace a wired rack on the stove and toast it.
  • When you see brown spots on the naan, remove them to a plate and brush with some butter.Ensure it is cooked through on both the sides well.
  • Spread some butter on top and serve naan right away with dal makhani, butter chicken or any other curry...


  • If using dry active yeast, pour 1/4 cup of lukewarm milk to a large mixing bowl along with sugar. Stir in the yeast and rest for 10 to 15 mins until it activates & turns frothy. Then add flour,garlic,salt, oil and yogurt. Knead the dough very well until soft & elastic, add more milk as required. Cover and rest in a warm place for about 2 to 3 hours or until the dough doubles. When the dough doubles, punch it one to two times to deflate a bit. Grease your hands and divide the dough to 6 to 8 parts. Follow the rest of the recipe from – how to make naan.
