Garlic Naan Recipe - Garlic Naan without yeast - Step by step instructions to make garlic naan

Whenever we dine at north Indian restaurants we always order butter naan / garlic naan. I have posted butter naan without yeast in my space before. My kids are so found of naan. There are some dishes which will disappear fast from their plate. Naan is one of those dishes. Now days I do naan without yeast. 

All purpose flour - 2 cups
Yogurt - 1/2 cup
Warm milk - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/2 teaspoon
Melted butter or ghee - 3 tablespoon
Salt to taste
baking soda - 1/2 teaspoon
baking powder - 1/2 teaspoon

Garlic - 3 tablespoon
Cilantro / Coriander leaves - 1 tablespoon


Shift maida with baking soda, baking powder and salt for few times. Take the flour in broader bowl and make a dent in the middle. Add Yogurt, warm milk, sugar in the dent. Now using your fingers bring together all the ingredients and make it soft dough. No need to knead so hard. Leave it for 3-4 hours. You can leave it for entire night. When you ready to make naan if the dough is sticky apply oil in your hands and knead gently. 

Take about lemon size ball (bigger than chapatht / chapatti) and roll into round chapatti. now pull the ends to get the naan shape. Sprinkle Garlic and coriander leaves. Roll it slightly. Heat the flat pan / tawa with handle. Apply water on one side of the Naan (other side to garlic one) by wetting your hands. When the Pan is hot put Naan on the tawa with watered side touching the pan. Close the pan with lid and cook for 45 sec in medium flame.
When you remove the lid you can see bubbles on the Naan. Now turn pan using handle so that top side of naan can be cooked directly on the flame. Cook till nice brown spot appears. Remove it from the pan and apply butter on the top
Serve hot with your favourite side dish
