10 Popular Naan Recipes 

10 Popular Naan Recipes. Out of all the North Indian flatbreads, naan is the most famous and preferred one. They are traditionally made with plain flour dough and cooked in a tandoor which is a clay pot oven. As tandoor is not available at everyone's house, we bring to you a variety of naan recipes that can be cooked easily on a regular stove in your own kitchen. Also, the addition of yeast to the dough helps in making soft and fluffy naan.

Butter naan sprinkled with sesame seeds and smeared generously with butter tastes amazing with Punjabi subzis and wholesome dals. In fact, you can even replicate the same taste and texture of a Tandoori naan using a pressure cooker. Enhance the flavor of butter naan by placing finely chopped garlic on a rolled naan and cooking it in open flame. Garlic naan tastes delicious as it is and also, the small pieces of garlic give a nice bite to it.

To make naan more filling, stuff them with tongue-tickling mixture of paneer or cheese and make delectable Masala Paneer Naan or Mini Chilli Cheese Naan. Serve these naan with a spicy curries or subzis to make a memorable meal.

If you are looking for healthy variants to the traditional naan then try substituting plain flour with soya flour and whole wheat flour. Soya Naan and Soya Methi Garlic Naan are sumptuous preparations which you can relish with delectable sabzis.

Have a look at recipes like Garlic Naan, Mini Chilli Cheese Naan, Nawabi Naan, Soya Methi Garlic Naan and many more.

It's fun making Naan at home and follow our pick of 10 Popular Naan Recipes.

Think Nawabi, and luxury is the first word that comes to mind! Indeed, what better way to recreate that richness than by using mixed nuts. This scrumptious Nawabi Naan is an amazing creation of traditional tandoori naan studded with nuts. This gives you a lovely texture and mildly sweet flavour as you chew on the naan. Once you sprinkle the nuts on the rolled dough, roll it lightly once again, so that they stick to the dough and do not fall off when cooked in the tava. Serve this naan with a tangy, spicy Subzis / Curries to make a memorable meal.
Exquisitely flavoured leavened bread cooked in a tandoor! i have added some garlic cloves to the naan dough to enhance its flavour.
Masala paneer naan: a flavourful stuffed naan with a filling of paneer, green chillies and coriander, masala paneer naan is indeed a dish that will set you apart as a gourmet chef! it cooks really well on a tava without the need for a tandoor.
The all-time tandoori favourite, now ready to make in your own kitchen, and that too using readily available ingredients! Perked up with a delectable phudina paste made of mint, cumin and other ingredients, naan turns into an appetizingly coloured dish with an attractive flavour. Use butter rather than oil to brush the Phudina Naan while cooking, in order to get a rich aroma and ideal texture. Serve accompanied with any subzi of your choice. I suggest you serve with Aloo Lajawab or Baby Corn Aur Paneer ka Salan or Malai Kofta . Tastes great also with Dhabey ki Dal .

The chewiness of plain flour naan can be quite tiresome after a helping! This sumptuous Soya Methi Garlic Naan made of fenugreek leaves and soya flour is not only rich in iron and low in calories, but also more enjoyable, with loads of garlic that not only imparts a nice flavour but also aids in reducing blood pressure. Enjoy this tasty naan without compromising on health!
Um, a whiff of this aromatic naan is enough to kindle your appetite. The peppy smell and flavour of coriander and sesame seeds make this whole wheat naan a brilliant choice for the main course . It has a grand air about it, which makes it apt for a festive menu, as much as for a regular day. Serve the Whole Wheat Coriander and Sesame Seeds Naan hot and fresh, greased with a dollop of butter to enhance its aroma further with a subzi of your choice. You can also try stuffed naans like Mini Chilli Cheese Naan and Masala Paneer Naan .
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 Subzis or Dals of your choice.
Naan is an Indian bread that is famous all over the world. While authentic naan is made in a clay oven or tandoor, this recipe lets you replicate the same taste and texture using a pressure cooker, a handy utensil that almost every Indian kitchen has! The Pressure Cooker Naan is a typical example of ingenuity winning over inability. Not everybody has a tandoor to experiment with, but a pressure cooker is something everybody has. So, why not put that to good use! The pressure cooker, placed upside down on the stove, emulates the same environment as a tandoor and gives the naan the same special wood-fired aroma and texture. Try it to believe us. Have a go at other pressure cooker recipes like Pindi Chole and Panchratni Dal .

Originally from Punjab, naan is a dish we almost always order at restaurants because of the misconception that it is tough to make at home! Why don’t you give it a try now? Not only is this Soya Naan easy to prepare but very nutritious too, because of the fortification of whole wheat flour with soya flour, along with the use of curds and soya oil too. If you are under the impression that tava cooking will not result in the same aroma and texture as a tandoor, try this sequence of tava and open flame cooking for a pleasant surprise!
You would have tasted Indian breads stuffed with potatoes, methi, mint, veggies and varied other options, but have you ever tried naan stuffed with rice? Rice, when combined with cheese and chilli flakes makes a very interesting stuffing for handy mini-sized naans that are ideal for cocktail parties. Innovative to the core, this Mini Chilli Cheese Naan is a starter that will unfailing bring compliments your way! Also try other naans like Masala Paneer Naan and Nawabi Naan .
