Recipe Description

North Indian baked flat bread infused with a nice garlic flavor


  • Maida (refined flour) – 2 cups
  • Baking powder – ½ teaspoon
  • Baking soda – ¼ teaspoon
  • Table salt – ½ teaspoon
  • Garlic cloves – 30 no
  • Powdered sugar – 1 teaspoon
  • Milk – ¾ cup
  • Plain yogurt – 1 tablespoon
  • Fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped – 1 tablespoon
  • Vegetable oil – 1 tablespoon
  • Butter – 3 tablespoons



  1. Sieve the refined flour, leaving some aside for dusting, with baking powder, baking soda and salt into a deep bowl.
  2. Place 20 garlic cloves in a blender and blend to a fine paste with 1 tablespoon (15 ml) water. Chop the remaining 10 garlic cloves finely and set aside.
  3. To the sieved flour add sugar, milk, garlic paste, yogurt, half the chopped garlic, cilantro leaves and knead into a medium soft dough. Apply the oil over the surface, cover with a damp cloth and set aside for at least 1 hour.
  4. Punch the dough with your hands to make it soft and pliable and divide into 8 equal portions. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 1 hour more.
  5. Place a non stick saucepan on medium heat and add the butter and allow it to melt. Take the pan off the stove top.
  6. Flatten each dough ball between your palms, apply a little melted butter and dust with the reserved flour. Roll into a ball again and keep it covered for 15 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 250°C / 480°
  8. Roll each dough ball on a floured surface into a 5-6 inch diameter disc. Pull it from one end to get the elongated shape of a naan. Sprinkle the remaining chopped garlic on the nans before cooking.
  9. Cook in the preheated oven for 7 minutes. You can also cook in a tandoor till brown spots appear on the surface of the naan.
  10. Remove and serve hot drizzled with melted butter.
