Ingredients Serving: 3

  1. butter naan:Maida / All purpose flour - 2 cups
  2. Quick raise Yeast - 1 tsp
  3. Warm water - 1 cup
  4. Salt - 1 tsp
  5. Sugar- 1 tsp
  6. Milk - small cup
  7. Oil - 2 to 3 tbsp
  8. Butter - as needed to make naan.


  1. Seive Maida in any utensil and keep aside.In this recipe, we are using Yeast in the preparation of Naan. Yeast acts as a raising agent and makes Naan very soft & yummy.
  2. Mix 1 tsp of Quick Raise Yeast in warm water. ( the water shouldn’t be too hot or cold )
  3. Add 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of sugar to it. Mix well. Blend in the warm milk and oil to it.
  4. Now pour this mixture to the maida flour. Knead it to very soft & sticky dough. The dough should be strictly smooth & sticky for to get soft tasty Naans.
  5. Now apply little oil on top of the dough and cover it. Let it rest for 15 to 20 minutes in a warm place.
  6. Apply little flour and knead it. Make equal sized balls of the dough. Take one ball of maida, apply dry flour and press it to round shape. Spread butter on it evenly.
  7. Fold the rolled Naan into half ( forming a semi-circle).Then again apply butter on the folded section. Now double this fold as it takes the shape of a triangle.
  8. Then apply dry flour to it. Roll it to thick triangular shape and make them ready. ( do not make it thin )
  9. Heat a girdle or tawa ( preferably cast iron one ). Place the rolled Naan in the hot girdle to cook. After one side puffs up, flip the Naan over to the other side.
  10. Once it gets slightly golden spots, take out from the skillet. Place it on wire rack and put it on direct flame. Keep the flame in medium to low heat ( take care not to burn the Naan Flip it over and cook on both sides.
  11. Once we see brown spots on the Naan, remove from heat. Butter Naan is ready.
