Naan is an all-time favourite Indian flatbread that is salty, crispy and flaky. There are several varieties of Naan, such as plain naan, butter naan and garlic naan.
Naan is made with all-purpose flour (Maida) to which leavening agents such as curd, yeast, baking soda and baking powder are added. The dough is then allowed to rise until it doubles in volume. Round or oval-shaped Naans are made either by hand or by a rolling pin. Naan is then placed in a tandoor (a type of large clay oven), or if you are making it at home, you can bake it in an oven or on a tawa.
Pair the warm, slightly charred from outside, fluffy and flaky Naan with dal makhani, butter chicken, aloo gobi, etc. and experience the sheer bliss of traditional Indian mouthwatering food.
