Bakar Khani Naan is a unique baked naan that is coated with poppy seeds and flavoured with cardamom powder. Baking gives this Hyderabadi naan a special taste and aroma, which are heightened by brushing it with melted butter before serving.

Make sure you serve it immediately to experience the best flavour and texture. When one batch of the naan is being baked, make sure you keep the remaining rolled ones covered with a damp muslin cloth; otherwise they will dry up and spoil the texture.

You can try other naan recipes like Butter Naan and Nawabi Naan .

I made my sister make this for me and it was the best naans I have ever had, never thought you could bake naans so easily at home and they taste so great, to top it the poppy seeds were tasting so delicious....
