Butter Garlic Naan


For Butter Naan

  • 3 cups all purpose flour (maida)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon instant yeast
  • ¼ cup curd, whisked
  • Salt as required
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoon garlic paste
  • 2 tablespoon melted butter/oil
  • Luke warm water as required

For the topping

  • 6-7 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 2-3 teaspoon coriander and mint leaves, chopped
  • 2-3 tablespoon butter, melted


  1. To begin making the Butter Garlic Naan, first sieve the flour along with the salt in a mixing bowl. Mix in the yeast and sugar.
  2. Add the curd, butter, garlic paste and mix well. Gradually add the water and knead it into a soft pliable dough.
  3. Knead for about 8-10 minutes on a flat, lightly floured surface. (Use the hook attachment for kneading, if using a stand mixer)
  4. Place the dough in a well oiled bowl and cover with a damp kitchen towel. Let the dough rest for 3-4 hours, till it doubles in size.
  5. Heat an iron griddle. Punch down the dough, once doubled and knead for a minute or two.
  6. Divide the dough into 6-7 equal portions and shape them into a ball.
  7. Pat or Roll out each ball to a 7-8 inch elongated, tear shape. (Keep the other dough balls covered while your roll out one.) Sprinkle some chopped garlic over the Naan and press well.
  8. Turn it over and brush this side with some water. Place the water brushed side on the hot iron griddle.
  9. Invert the griddle exposing the garlic side directly to the flame, without directly touching the flame.
  10. Move the griddle slowly so that the Naan cooks evenly.
  11. In about a minute, the Naan starts browning and you can see a few bubbles.
  12. Using a pair of tongs, take off the Naan from the griddle and cook the other side directly on the flame. Keep moving the naan for even cooking.
  13. Mix the coriander and mint with the melted butter. Brush the Garlic Naan with this herbed butter and serve immediately.
