Garlic Naan Bread (No Yeast)

I love Naan Bread to have with the curries which I order in any restaurants. As far as I remember I have tasted Plain Naan, Butter Naan, Garlic Naan, Coriander Naan, Stuffed Naan..Aha..And one more Cheeseeeeee Naan..I tasted that in a restaurant called sparsa, which is in kayakumari. That was so good and it was my favorite one apart from Garlic and Butter Naan.. I will soon try it in home and post for you guys..

Usually they make naan using yeast. But I saw in one of anjum anand’s cooking show, in which she made naan using baking powder. I tried it and it was pretty successful. But I added some extra stuff to the naan dough to make it even more special. And the result was so good..I served this along with Low Fat Paneer Butter Masala..I hope you will try this and tell me how it turned out.

All Purpose Flour / Maida – 5 cups
Baking powder –  1 tsp
Garlic – 10 cloves chopped finely
Butter – 3 tblspn melted (for brushing on top)

Wet Ingrediants:
Yogurt / curd – 1 cup

Mix all the wet ingrediants given in the list and let it sit for a while.

Mix flour, baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Pour the wet ingredient mixture over this and make into a dough.

Now knead the dough for 10 mins till it gets smooth.

Cover the dough and let it rest for 30 mins.

Preheat the grill mode in the oven to 250°C /500°F…

Take a small portion out of the dough and roll it into circle. Now elongate the top with your hands so that it forms naan shape(oval shape)

Place it on a foil lined baking tray. Sprinkle with some garlic and press it with your hands so that it get stuck to the naan.

Place it in the oven on the top rack near to the grill and cook it for 3-5 mins till the top gets little golden spots.

Remove from the oven and brush it with butter.

  16. Hi Aarthi,Nice innovative recipe. You have used 5cups of maida, Can you pls tell how much grams of flour will your 1 cup measure? Because my cup holds 250 grams. Is it same cup measurement you have used for curd, milk?........UmaRaghu/Poland

  17. @Unknownmy cup carry 120 gms of flour and 250 ml of curd and milk.

    This recipe doesn't work correctly with measuremets. U adjust the quantity of milk and curd accordingly.
