Naan: Indian Bread

By Super


500gms Maida (Refined Flour)
50gms Curds
50ml Milk
2 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Baking Powder
A pinch of Cooking Soda
Salt to taste
1 ' tbsp Oil


Sieve Flour, Salt, Soda and Baking Powder together. Make a well in the center. Mix Sugar, Curd and Milk well. Add little water if required to the Curd-Milk mixture. Pour this mixture over the sieved flour to bind to soft dough. Cover and keep aside for at least 10 minutes. Again punch the dough by using oil and keep it aside, covered for fermentation for at least two hours. Divide the dough into eight equal sized portions. Roll them into balls and flatten each with the palm to give it a round thick Chapathi like shape. Then stretch on one side to form an oval shaped Naan. Bake in hot tandoor or in a pre-heated oven till done. Similarly prepare the remaining Naans.

Serve hot with Butter and your choice of Raitha's, Dal or Side dishes.
