roti(bread) recipe from the north indian state of Punjab. Tandoori
Naan(also spelt as nan) is made using plain flour and is baked in big barrel sized mud
ovens called Tandoor. Naan is served with curry.
Apart from plain nan, butter naan, garlic naan are also made. The shape of the naan is generally oblong or oval. Though it is a flat bread, it is shaped by hand instead of using a rolling pin.
There are many naan recipes. This naan recipe is the one I usually use. I find it easy
and my daughter loves the naan bread made this way. I am using a girdle to cook naan. You
can also make nan in oven. Naan should be eaten hot.
