Homemade Naan Without Yeast

"Naan" is a name well-known in Indian cooking, and this is one kind of leavened flatbread that is appreciated all around the world, by Indians and non-Indians alike.

Soft and tender, Naan can be made with several different variations,say it be butter naan or garlic naan... but I bet every one loves a bite of simple naan! It pairs well with any kind of curry,mix vegetable and is filling as well as appealing to the eye. Determined to try a homemade Naan recipe without yeast, I set out on an adventure last weekend, and was happy to find one of the recipe on internet which was truly of my type so also easy and simple but quick...which resulted into Naans that turned out nice and fluffy!

Naans are traditionally cooked in a Tandoor or earthern oven but can also be made in your oven at home. The dough for Naans needs to be made in advance so factor that into the preparation time.nevertheless, My experiment was absolutely successful, and my hubby was happy ..we enjoyed along with methi matar malai!...Everytime we used to enjoy naan at restaurants,I would dream of making it at home....last weekend with the successful preparation of naans at home my dream came true....here I would like to post my recipe for you all which is simple and makes use of tawa instead of oven...so any one can do it easily....
