Naan is one of those things that I love to make alongside my curries. Don’t get me wrong, I love my chapattis, but there is just something about some fluffy and chewy naan that it just can’t be beaten.
I tried many versions of naan recipes and after a lot of trying and testing, I can promise you that this naan recipe will be the best yet. I know some people don’t use yeast, but I tried several versions with and without yeast. The ones with yeast always turned out much fluffier and had more bubbles. Who wants naans without bubbles? No one!
This recipe is simply a plain naan recipe. However, you can spice it up a bit with some additional flavour. Brush some plain melted butter or add some crushed garlic or finely chopped coriander. Even if you choose not to this naan recipe is still delicious.
I love using ghee instead of butter. I know ghee isn’t always available in places, so you can make your own or just stick to butter. With ghee, there is a more intense butter flavour since the water has been removed leaving behind only milk solids.
Some recipes do add yoghurt. For a flatbread recipe that uses yoghurt you can check out my Turkish bazlama recipe. I don’t like to add yoghurt in this recipe as I feel it changes the texture of the naan bread. There is less air in the naan, and it isn’t as fluffy.
