How to Make Tawa Naan

1. In a kneading bowl, add maida, salt, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, curd and water. Knead until everything combines.

2. Add oil and continue kneading the dough for 3 mins.

3. Rest the dough for 60 mins.

4. Split the dough into equal-sized balls. Roll the dough into roti shaped circles.

5. Hold the rolled dough in between both your palms and flip your palms on both sided to extend one side of the dough.

6. Place the dough on a rolling board, apply oil or butter on the facing side. Apply little water on the other side of the rolled and extended dough.

7. Heat an Iron or Stainless Steel Tawa, place the water applied side on the Tawa.

8. Cook the dough for a few seconds. Lift the Tawa and show the other side of the dough to direct flame to cook the other side and also to get a chared look that we get in a tandoor naan.

9. Apply butter once the naan is removed from the Tawa on the charred side.

10. To make Garlic Naan, add the finely chopped garlic on the facing side(the side where butter is applied before cooking) and cook it the same way. The garlic side has to be cooked on direct flame.
