Garlic Butter Naan...!!!

Author: Siddhi Shirsat // Category:

My post on garlic butter naans was pending from last few months so i am posting it today. This naans are very easy and worth a try.They are perfect to enjoy with hot veg or non veg gravy of your choice.

  • 200 grams flour(maida)
  • 2 tea spoons of active dry yeast
  • 2 table spoons of yogurt
  • 2 table spoons of fresh course garlic paste
  • 2 tea spoons of oil
  • 2 table spoon of butter
  • 1 tea spoon sugar
  • 3 tea spoons of chopped corainder leaves
  • salt


Take 2 table spoons if warm water in a bowl, add sugar in it and mix well. Add yeast and close it and keep for 10 mins.Then bubbles will come and the mixture will rise.Take the flour in a big bowl, add the yeast mixture, salt,yogurt, 1 table spoons of garlic paste, oil and kned it using water if required to a nice soft dough.Kned it well for atleast 5 mins.

Take the dough ball and keep it in a warm place for 2 hours, thn the dough becomes double in volume.Now make balls from this dough and roll them into long medium thick naans. They have to be 3-4mm thick approx.

Heat a griddle or tawa(preferably cast iron one).Mix garlic paste and butter and make a mixture.Apply this mixture evenly to each rolled naan.Put each naan on hot tawa,it should be very very hot. Then the naan will start bubbling on top and get golden brown spots on the bottom.Now take the naan and put the uncooked side directly on the gas flame as we do for phulkas.Keep it for few seconds until u get charred spots.

Remove it from flame. Garnish with chopped corainder and serve hot with gravy of your choice.

NOTE: You can make plain naans similarly without using the butter-garlic paste.

HAPPY MAHASHIVRATRI To All My Dear Blogger Friends...!!!
On this auspicious occasion i am posting a very unique sweet recipe.I am saying its unique as this sweet is used making a vegetable ie green peas.Green peas gives this sweet a very nice taste as well as a  nice colour naturally.

  • 200 grams fresh green peas
  • 150 grams sugar
  • 100 grams milk powder
  • 50 grams cashew nut powder
  • 1 tea spoon vanilla essence
  • 1 cup almond chopped
  • 1/2 tea spoon cardamom seed powder
  • 2-3 tea spoons of pure ghee

Heat water in a vessel and add the green peas and let them get cooked fully.Now cool them and remove thin cover of each green pea.Removing this cover is important as it gives a smooth paste later.After removing the peels grind this boiled mutter to a very fine paste using very little water.There is one more way to remove peels of green peas. Put this hot boiled green peas in 'puran yantra'.After putting this mutter in puran yantra the peels gets separated and a thin paste is obtained. For those who do not know what is 'puran yantra' , its a vessel used to make puran for puran polis.

Now heat a non stick pan and add 2 tea spoon ghee and add the mutter paste and saute it for 3-4 mins.Then add sugar and mix it.Sugar will melt and the mixture will change colour to dark green paste. Let it get cooked for 5 mins.

Now add the milk powder, cashew nut powder and vanilla essence and mix well.Mixture will again change colour to light green and will start getting thicker.Saute it till it forms a ball.Add cardamom powder and mix it and let the mixture form a ball.

Grease the back side of a plate with ghee. Pour the cooked mixture over it and spread it over it uniformly using a greased small flat plate.Sprinkle almond shivers on it and press gently. Let it get cooled for 20 mins. Cut it into deisired shape and serve.

They remain fresh without refrigeration for 10-12 days.

Preparation Time: 30 mins
