Cooking Thursday - Homemade Garlic Naan

Good morning ladies, hope you are having a good start to your day.

Here is today's recipe, one of my family's favorites.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Homemade Quick Garlic Naan

1 cup of all-purpose flour
1 tbsp sugar
generous pinch of baking soda
3 tbsp yogurt
little water if needed
Garlic (optional, if you don't want garlic naan just omit it)

In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients together. Add 3tbsp yogurt and a little water if needed.

Knead in the bowl until smooth and cover for 30 minutes.

Preheat the tawa or a heavy skillet on medium high heat. Divide your dough and roll in to balls. For a 12" tawa, you will get 3 pieces of naan per cup of flour.

Roll on a lightly floured surface to approximately 1/4" thick. Dust off any excess flour and place on the hot tawa or skillet.

Optional- brush the top side with ghee (clarified butter) or oil. This recipe works perfectly well without the added fat but butter is tasty and it'll give you a crisper naan.

When bubbles begin to form (10 to 20 seconds), flip and use a clean, folded dish towel to constantly rotate the naan so it doesn't burn. It may puff up like a pita.

Optional- brush the 2nd side with ghee or oil

Flip once more after a minute or less once you have browning on one side and repeat the rotating until done.

Best enjoyed shortly after making. Dough balls will keep in the fridge for a couple of days.


  1. I love naan but was always afraid to make it. You make it sound easy! I'll have to try next time I make Indian food :-)

  2. I've never had naan, but it sounds good!

  3. This looks sooo good ~ I can't wait to try it! Have a wonderful weekend!


  4. This looks really good. Best of all it looks simple to make.

  5. I love naan--will have to try making it!
