Naan is the most well-known indian bread and is fast gaining popularity the world over. The naan is leavened bread prepared in the traditional tandoor. However for those of us who do not have tandoors in our kitchens, here is a great way of preparing the naan using a non-stick tava. Serve them hot with any subzi or dal of your choice.

  8. Cook it on the other side till it puffs a little and then roast it on an open flame till it turns golden brown from both the sides.
