Naan is an Indian flat bread baked in clay oven. It is a world famous Indian bread recipe. It has a crusty bottom and fluffy on the top smeared it with butter. There are different kinds of naan like garlic naan, kheema naan, onion naan and sometimes different kinds of vegetables are stuffed in naan.

Naan is served mostly with comfort foods like kebabs, tandoor, meat curries or vegetable curries. It tastes best when it is hot from oven.

I have tried to recreate naan recipe using tawa or a griddle. It came out pretty well. This recipe has minimal ingredients and quite easy to make. 


2 cups Maida or All purpose flour
1/2 tsp dry yeast
1/2 tsp sugar
2 tsp Oil
1 beaten egg (optional)


  • In a small bowl, mix yeast and  warm water. Stir until yeast dissolves completely

  • In a large mixing bowl, add maida, sugar and salt. Mix well

  • Then add yeast and egg (optional). Add water to knead dough. The dough should be very soft. Finally, add oil and knead well

  • Keep dough in warm place for at least 2 hours
  • After dough has fermented, knead it again. Divide the dough into equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball. Take a ball and dust it with flour and roll it flat using rolling pin

  • Gently place in on a griddle or flat pan. roast it evenly on both the sides. Smear oil or butter
  • Garnish with cilantro and serve hot
