ABOUT Tawa Garlic Butter Naan RECIPE

Naan is definitely the most popular bread in Indian restaurants. Traditionally, naan is cooked in a tandoor or hot clay oven. But I find at home tawa naan is much easier to make. Tawa Naan turns out really soft and it tastes great. It’s hassle-free because you don’t need a tandoor or oven. Naan Goes well with the gravy based dish.
