Stove-top Butter Naan / No Yeast Eggless Butter Naan / Homemade Butter Naan

April 12, 2013 Motions and Emotions 17 Comments

When we eat out, most of the time we order either naan or kulcha. So this time I thought of preparing naan at home. Naan is an Indian bread traditionally cooked in tandoor or earthen oven or you can prepare it in your micro oven too. But today I will share the recipe of doing naan in a covered non stick pan or skillet. I have not used yeast for preparing naan.

Stove-top Butter Naan / No Yeast Eggless Butter Naan / Homemade Butter Naan

Maida (Refined Flour) – 2 cups
Milk – 1/2 cup 
Curd – 2/3 cup
Salt to taste
Sugar - 1/2 teaspoon
Baking soda – a pinch
Sodium bi carbonate – a pinch

1. Take maida in a vessel along with the sodas, salt and sugar. Mix it well. 
2. Now add curd into it and start kneading it. Instead of water add warm milk slowly to knead the maida and make soft dough ready. Cover the dough with a wet cloth for half an hour.  
3. Now take big lemon size balls from the dough and roll out like thin circle. 
4. Heat a skillet and put the rolled naan into it and cover it with a lid.  When one side is cooked turn the other side. Now brush it with butter. Your home made naan is ready to serve. Serve it hot with some delicious curry or gravy.

  6. This sounds and looks good -- I am passing on the recipe to my Son and Heir, who is responsible for making lunch today. He is the one who taught me to make flatbreads -- including pitas -- on the griddle, and he is partial to cast iron. The addition of curd, and the gentle mixing method you describe, looks like it will make a soft, pleasing product.
