  • For preparing Butter Naan, dissolve yeast in luke warm milk and cover it with a damp cloth and wait for 5-10 mins for the yeast to be frothy.
  • Mix the dry ingredients (maida, baking soda, salt and sugar).
  • Add wet ingredients (lightly beaten egg, curd, yeast and veg oil) to the above dry mix.
  • Knead it well until u get a very soft dough.
  • :- It will be very sticky initially but by continuous kneading and by adding very little flour it will become non sticky. Do not add more flour because naan will become hard.
  • Keep the dough covered with a damp cloth for 4 hrs.
  • Knead it for 5 mins after every 1 hr so the dough will double in volume.
  • Punch out the gas and make equal sized 4 balls and flatten it.
  • :- Do not make it too thin. Make punches on the naan using forks.
