2 teaspoon instant yeast
2 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon yogurt
1 cup milk
1.33 cup water; warm
3 tablespoon butter
2 clove garlic
1.25 cup green coriander (cilantro); chopped
1 pinch salt

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



First make paste by using butter, garlic, coriander and pinch of salt.

1) Take flour in big bowl and add yeast, sugar, salt, milk and yogurt and knead for 5 minute by adding warm water little by little as needed.

2) Leave for 1 hour covered with towel at warm place.

3) After one hour take out air from dough by patting.

4) Divide dough into 6 equal parts and make balls.

5) Now roll one ball into a 7 inch round.

6) Give hints of butter on top and put in very hot oven on wire rack not in a try. Save from direct heat from down side.

Absolute hands down best naan recipe I have come across. Never fails, and everyone I make them for rave about them and go off and make them

Really yummy used my breadmaker for the dough and cooked them on the barbecue at a high temperature. Worked like a charm

This is as good as it gets. Super easy and super tasty. This is now a regular in our house and also use it for fresh naan kebabs. The only difference we do is we cook the bread in a skillet and not the oven.

Made several different recipes, modified this with whole wheat w/o coriander in a bread machine and it turned out excellent.
