Chef Tips:

  1. If you are using yeast then soak it first in the lukewarm water until yeast gets dissolved and then mix in the dough.
  2. Some people like to add spices like green chillies in the naan. You can even try that.
  3. You can also use pressure cooker to make butter naan, for that you need to remove the lid and heat it by keeping upside down.

  • There is one more way of making butter naan at home. Take a deep U shaped pan or kadhai, which do not have handles. Turn on the gas and heat the pot upside down. Apply little bit of oil or water only on one side of the naan and place that wet side down. Leave to cook until you observe the brown spots. Naan is ready, you just need to take it out and apply butter as much as you want.
