Tawa Naan Recipe | No Yeast Stove Top Garlic Naan Recipe | Easy Tawa Garlic Naan Recipe

Tawa Garlic Naan
Today's recipe is Naan/leavened flat bread without yeast, No oven and an easy Stove Top Method.  I have already shared a healthy Naan using Multi grain Flour. This Tawa Naan is almost the same recipe with All Purpose Flour. Just simple kneading and a lot of resting time is more than enough to get a super soft and yummy Naan on stove top itself. Now off to the recipe...

Tawa Naan Recipe
Prep Time : 3 hours 10 Minutes(Inc Resting time) | Cook Time : 12-15 Minutes or less
Recipe Category : Main Course | Recipe Cuisine : Indian
Makes 4
  1. All Purpose Flour  1 cup(I used unbleached flour)
  2. Yogurt/curd         1/4 cup
  3. Water  as needed
  4. Sugar        1 tsp
  5. Salt           1/4 tsp or to taste
  6. Baking powder            1/2 tsp
  7. Baking soda/cooking soda     1/2 tsp
  8. Oil                 1 tbsp + 1 tsp
  9. Garlic   3 fat cloves(grated or finely chopped)
  10. Cilantro   2-3 tbsp(finely chopped)
  11. Extra flour to dust while rolling the dough.
  12. Butter/ghee/oil to brush naan.
  • In a wide bowl, sift flour, salt, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and combine well.
  • Make a dent and pour yogurt and 2tsp oil and mix well.
  • Now add water little by little and make a soft dough.
  • After that, add 1 tsp oil over the dough and knead it to a soft, pliable dough for 4-5 minutes.
  • Once done keep it in a bowl, smear little oil in it and cover the bowl with cling wrap or use damp cloth to cover the dough n keep aside in a warm place for 3-4 hours.
  • Although the dough will rise, it will not double and may be slightly sticky to touch.
  • Divide the dough into 10 balls. 
  • Now heat a tawa/griddle on medium high heat.
  • On a well floured surface place a ball and roll it to tear or oval shape(i couldn;t get it perfectly).
  • Then sprinkle some garlic and finely chopped cilantro over it and press it gently using a rolling pin so that it sticks to the dough. Now on the other side of rolled naan brush it with water and put it on the heat tawa(so that the water sprinkled surface sticks to the tawa).
  • Cook covered in medium heat (one minute)until the bubble starts and puffed up.
  • Then removed the lid and flip other side and cook for a minute or directly cook under flame.
  • Once done remove from the tawa/fire and brush the naan with butter or ghee.
  • Do repeat the same with remaining balls.
  • That's it..soft and yummy Tawa Garlic Naans are ready. 
Resting time is important to get soft and delicious Naan, instead of water you can also use milk to knead the dough.
I used unbleached flour, so the Naan were not bright color like the restaurant ones, you can also use Maida or Enriched & Bleached All Purpose Flour.
Use a day old curd or slightly sour curd but not too sour curd.
If you are planning for lunch, make the dough by 8 in the morning and let it rest till 11 or 11.30 and make Naans or by 2 or 3 pm for dinner.
Step By Step Recipe For Tawa Garlic Naan...
Add all the dry ingredients first, mix well then add oil mix well and add curd and mix everything altogether
 Then using water bring it to a dough, add another tsp oil and knead for 5-6 minutes to get a soft and pliable dough.
Then cover the dough bowl with cling wrap and let it rest for minimum 3 hours or up to 4 hours.
After that divide the dough into 4 balls and roll it to oval shape, sprinkle some garlic, cilantro press it and to the other side brush it with water and place the water side on tawa cook until bubble appears and flip other for few seconds and directly cook on the fire until top get golden brown spots. Then remove the naan and brush with butter and serve hot.
