Introduction: Indian Garlic Naan

About: Hey y'all! My name is Lydia and I want to share my passion for cooking/baking with everyone!

Hey guys! Today I want to show you how easy it is to make Indian Garlic Naan. I've have fresh naan once at this Indian restaurant long ago and I've loved it but I was alway a bit intimidated to make is myself but clearly I was missing out because it is so easy to make and it turns out so delicious! This naan is soft and buttery and full of garlic flavor, which I love and the cilantro takes it over the top so don't think of skipping out on it! If you want to know how to make your own garlic naan then follow the step by step instructable below or watch the video tutorial here:

Step 1: Tools and Ingredients

Ingredients

  • ¼ Cup warm Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • ¾ Cup warm Milk
  • 3/4 Cup Greek Yogurt
  • 4 Cups all-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ Cup salted Butter (melted)
  • 5 cloves of Garlic (minced)
  • 2 Tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • Fresh Cilantro

Tools

Step 2: Prepare the Yeast

In a medium bowl combine the yeast, sugar, and water and let sit until foamy (takes about 5-10 minutes).

Step 3: Dry Ingredients

While you are waiting, in a large bowl add in your flour and salt and mix till combined.

Step 4: Wet Ingredients

Whisk in the warm milk and plain yogurt together gently. Once combined, add the yeast mixture into the milk and yogurt mixture and stir until well-combined.

Step 5: Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until a loose dough is formed.

Step 6: Knead

Turn out onto a lightly-floured surface and knead until smooth, about 3-4 minutes (it will come together even though it doesn't seem like it).

Step 7: Let It Rise!

Transfer the dough to a large, lightly oiled bowl and cover loosely with a towel. Let rise at room temperature until doubled in size this takes about 1 hour.

Step 8: Knead Again (Briefly)

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Knead briefly into a disc to allow an easy cut.

Step 9: Cut and Roll

Cut the dough into 12 equal-sized pieces. Roll each piece into a ball.

Step 10: Roll It Out Completely and Butter

Heat a large, heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat and once hot, add in 2 Tablespoons of unsalted butter. Roll each dough ball out until it is about 1/4-inch-thick. Brush the dough lightly with melted salted butter and place one at a time onto the hot skillet.

Step 11: Cook

Cook until large bubbles form on the surface, about 2 minutes. Flip the dough and cook the other side until golden, about 1-2 more minutes. Stack the cooked flat bread on a plate and cover with a towel to keep warm as you cook the remaining pieces.

Step 12: Add Toppings

Add the minced garlic to the remaining melted butter and heat for 30 seconds on the stove top. Brush the warm naan with the garlic butter and top with cilantro.

Step 13: Enjoy!

Enjoy them while fresh and warm (it's the best) but you can definitely heat them up later.

    What would you say to baking these in an oven on quarry tiles or firebricks?

    Anyone know if you can use whole wheat flour?

    I wouldn't because it might change the texture because whole wheat is a lot more dense. You can always give it a try though.

    Can you do that on instructables? If so I'm not sure how...I don't have a functioning website yet, best way to be notified is through my youtube channel for right now or checking the instructables feed...sorry, I plan on having a website running some time 2019 :-) Thank's for the support.
