All Purpose Flour / Maida - 2 cups
Baking pwd - 1 tsp
Baking soda - 1 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Yoghurt - ¼ cup
Lemon juice - 1 tbsp
Grated garlic - 3 to 4 tbsp
Finely chopped coriander leaves - ¼ cup
Take Maida flour in a wide bowl.
Add baking pwd, baking soda and salt.
Mix all the ingredients together.
Add yoghurt and combine.
Now add little water and knead to smooth dough.
The perfect consistency of the dough should be soft & sticky to hands.
Finally add lemon juice and mix it well.
Cover it with a damp cloth & keep it in warm place for 3 to 4 hrs.
You can see the dough has rised up so nicely.
The consistency of the dough is still more sticky now.
Sprinkle little maida flour and try to roll it to small balls. ( take care not to add more flour, as it makes the dough thick )
This dough can also be used for pizza’s & breads
Now dust your hands with APF and just press the dough ball to oval shape.of ½ inch thickness ( or roll it gently with rolling pin)
Grate garlic and coriander leaves finely.
Sprinkle them on top of naan.
Roll it slightly with rolling pin, so that it gets pressed along the naan.
Now for roasting, we need a hot skillet & a wire rack over stove top.
( we can bake it in oven also, by setting oven at maximum temp. like 550 degree Farenheit for 7 mins or until baked )
For roasting it in skillet, heat the skillet until its hot.
Place the naan over it.
When small bubbles start appearing on top of naan, roast it on other side.
Once it gets slightly golden spots on the other side as well, take out from skillet..
Place it on wire rack and put it on direct heat.
Keep the flame in medium to low heat ( take care not to burn the naan )
Flip it over to next side,
You can see how nicely the naan puffs up in the wire rack.
When its cooked on both sides, take it out.
Brush some butter over it.
It has got very nice crunchy outside & very soft, moist flaky inside with a tempting aroma from garlic & coriander leaves. ( can also sprinkle little chat masala over it for added flavor )
Perfect flaky restaurant style Garlic Naan is ready.
Enjoy hot with any North Indian curry.
