Garlic naans are a delicious Indian flatbread recipe that is frequently served with curries. A delicious alternative to chapattis, these garlic naans taste so good.
I absolutely love curries as you can probably tell by the hundreds of curry recipes that I have on my website, so it seems only fitting that I share some more recipes of how to eat said curries.
Curries can be eaten with a variety of things, such as rice, chapatti, or even on their own. I have already shared my naan bread recipe on this website, but the garlic addition in this garlic naan adds that little bit more flavour.
To get that garlic flavour, I mince some fresh garlic and add it to the melted butter. It is important to ensure that you use hot, melted butter to get the maximum garlic flavour. This is because it helps the garlic to infuse faster to create a delicious aroma and flavour.
Traditionally, naans are baked in a tandoor. A tandoor is a cylindrical clay oven used to cook food at high temperatures.
They are very common in Southeast Asia and every household has one, including mine! However, in the Western world, they’re not all that common.
So, instead, I have adapted this recipe so you can make naan bread on a grill or griddle instead. It is important to ensure that you heat the pan to the highest temperature you can get it to reach before you add the naan.
The high temperature allows pockets of air to form within the naan, causing it to rise and puff up.
When the pan or grill is hot, brush the naan with the garlic butter mixture and add it to the hot pan. Allow for 2-3 minutes for the naan bread to puff up, then flip and repeat.
Flatten the naan bread with a spatula while they are cooking. This will help to ensure that the naans cook all the way through.
I like to wrap the cooked naans in a thick tablecloth while the rest of the naan bread is being made. This will keep the naans soft and moist until ready to serve.
Brush each freshly cooked naan bread with melted butter and sprinkle with fresh coriander. Serve with any curry for a delicious meal.
