Homemade Garlic naan on stove top, without yeast, a popular Indian flat bread, recipe with full video and step by step pictures. Garlic naan is loved by everyone at home. Though i have never attempted making this at home, i always love to give it a try. I have posted Plain kulcha recipe and a Homemade Peshwari naan, with yeast. I just followed my Kulcha recipefor this recipe, as it doesn’t contains any yeast. But this tried using half portion of whole wheat flour and half portion of all purpose flour. I turned out really well and my son who is a fan of garlic naan, loved it very much.
We served this Garlic naan with Green peas masala. Though paneer masala or chole is the usual combo for naan, trust me, the green peas masala combo turned out so well.

Description

Homemade Garlic naan on stove top, without yeast, a popular Indian flat bread, recipe with full video and step by step pictures.

Method :

  • In a wide bowl add 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1 cup of all purpose flour.
  • Add 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp baking powder.
  • Add 2 tsp sugar and required salt.
  • Mix everything well.
  • Add 1/4 cup of curd to this. I used homemade curd directly from the fridge.
  • Now add 1/2 cup of warm milk to this.
  • Mix well and knead this into a dough.
  • Add little water while kneading.
  • Now add in the 2 tsp of oil and make a smooth soft dough.
  • Cover this with a damp cloth.
  • Rest this for 2 hours minimum in a hot place. You can leave it for 4-5 hours too.
  • Meanwhile let's keep the garlic butter mix.
  • In a bowl add 3 tblsp very finely chopped garlic.
  • Add little finely coriander leaves to this.
  • Add 1/2 tblsp of softened butter to this.
  • Mix everything well. This mixture we are going to use as garlic spread on the naan.
  • Make equal big lemon sized balls of the dough.
  • Keep the dough balls covered always, to avoid them getting dried.
  • Take one  dough ball, dust with plain flour.
  • Roll this into a oblong shaped thick roti.
  • Spread water on one side of this rolled roti.
  • Place this on a hot tawa keeping the water spread side down on the tawa.
  • When you start seeing bubbles, spread some garlic mixture on the top.
  • Once the down part cooks, the roti which is sticking to the tawa slowly gets released.
  • Flip it now.
  • Add some butter and spread it on the naan.
  • Generally we turn it down on direct flame before it comes out from the tawa. But i am not doing that as it spoils the tawa and also not so convenient too.
  • Once the garlicy side is cooked, take the naan using a tong and show it on direct flame for few seconds.
  • Take out from the fire and it is ready.
  • You can add some more butter if you want more.

Notes

1. You can try using whole wheat flour fully but i tried long back, not so happy with the results.
2. As the whole wheat flour makes the naan dense, we need to increase the baking powder to make it airy and light.
3. Do not use too old baking soda or baking powder. It will not react well and makes the naan hard.
4. Ensure the Garlic is very finely chopped for Garlic naan.
