Who can escape the indigenous bread that is ever more a part of Indian cuisine? Naan, the leavened flat bread is something that everyone loves. It has different incarnations of tickling taste buds like butter naan, plain naan etc. I discovered an easy way of making Naan at home without having to use 'YEAST'. Yes, I can perhaps not handle yeast! I've never been able to handle it, so I found an alternative to using yeast in Naan and Lo! it tasted just the same. Its so simple and you'll definitely love doing it! 

Maida/All pupose flour2 cups
Thick curds1/2 cup
Milk,warm1/2 cup
Sugar1/2 tsp
Salt1 tsp
Baking powder3/4 tsp
Cooking soda3/4 tsp
Ghee/Butter4 tsp


1. In a large bowl mix All purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder  and make a dent in the centre. Pour curd, milk, sugar and salt. 

2. Gather and mix them well. Knead them to a chapati dough consistency and keep it aside for about an hour and half. 

3. Heat a skillet and knead the dough again roughly and make small balls and roll it using a rolling pin with generous amount of dry all purpose flour.

4. On a meduim flame cook the naan until its golden brown colour. Apply butter/ ghee on both sides and enjoy hot with accompaniment of your choice. Or if you prefer plain Naan, you could avoid using ghee/butter. I had made Paneer muttar masala.
