Making butter naan at home is not at all complex. We have made butter naan by ingredients that are easily available in every house pantry. Naan is prepared and relished in many ways yet the basic and authentic recipe remains the same. Traditionally, butter naan is made using refined flour, yet you can substitute it with whole wheat flour. We have made our tawa butter naan using refined flour and have used yeast. Yet some people use curd and baking soda for the fermentation of the flour.

Be very careful while kneading the butter naan dough, if the dough would have not been kneaded well, the naan will come out chewy.

Naan is the most well-known Indian bread and is popular the world over. Most Indian restaurants overseas will serve you a butter naan if Punjabi food is on the menu.

However for those of us who do not have tandoors in our kitchens, here is a great way of preparing the butter naan using a non-stick tava. Serve them hot with any Subzi or Dal of your choice.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Q. My yeast did not froth. What could be the reason? 1. The yeast could have been old. yeast looses its leavning tendency over a period of time.
