Oven-Baked Garlic Naan

Naan or Tandoori Roti is an Indian flatbread that is prepared in the Tandoor oven. It is an elliptical-shaped oven where charcoal is usually used for heat. The temperature in this type of oven can reach up to 400 ºC. The pieces of bread are directly stuck to the wall of this Tandoor Oven, and due to its high temperature, they puffed immediately. In India, all dishes that are made in Tandoor usually served in restaurants or street stalls. Apart from this, Naan dough making is very simple and doesn’t require an elaborated kneading. That is why Naan can be prepared very easily at home and is just as delicious.

Among the varieties of Naan, the most popular are Garlic Naan, Paneer Naan, Keema Naan, Peshwari Naan, Kashmiri Naan, etc.

Today’s recipe is Garlic Naan. I usually make them on an iron skillet, but today I will make them in the oven.

 Ingredients

  • 300 g all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ a teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons plain yoghurt
  • 80 ml warm whole milk (approximately)
  • 60 ml warm water
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Melted butter/Ghee
  • 2-3 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh coriander leaves chopped

 

Instructions:

-In a small bowl put 60 ml warm water. Add the active dry yeast and sugar. Give it a mix and leave it for 10 minutes or until foamy.

-In a large bowl add flour, baking powder, salt, and yoghurt. Add the yeast mixture that we have prepared.

-Gradually add warm milk and knead.

-Knead into a soft, smooth dough. In this process, you can put a little oil in the palm of your hand to make it easier.

-Cover the dough with plastic wrap and keep it in a warm place for about 2-3 hours or until it doubles in volume.

-Divide the dough into small portions and form it into small balls. There should be approximately 7-8 balls. Cover them with a tea towel.

-Roll a ball in the flour and flatten it with your hands. Then, with the help of a roller stretch it in a circle or oval leaving in a thickness of 2 millimetres approximately. If the dough sticks to the surface, sprinkle a little flour on the circle so that it does not stick.

-Sprinkle a little garlic and chopped coriander on top. Press them lightly with the help of the roller.

-Preheat the oven to the maximum. Put the Naans on the tray (I put three Naans) and place the tray directly on the bottom of the oven.

-When the bottom of the Naan has browned and risen slightly, place the tray in the middle of the oven.

-Let it cook for few seconds or until golden.

-Take them out and cover them with a tea towel while we do the rest.
-Brush with the melted butter and serve them hot.
