Homemade Butter Naan

Mom's butter panneer and naan go very well together. Mom had made this combo recently when I was in Ooty with friends and it was a hit as always. On popular demand, here is the recipe for the naan. You can find the recipe for butter panneer here.

Ingredients (makes 5 naans) :

  1. 1 cup maida
  2. 1 tsp sugar
  3. 1 tsp salt
  4. 1 tbsp oil
  5. 2 tbsp curd
  6. Whey from what is left of home made panneer
How to make it :
  1. Mix the maida, sugar, salt, oil and curd. 
  2. Add the whey little by little to make a smooth pliable dough.
  3. Cover with a wet cloth and keep aside for at least 1 hour. 
  4. After an hour, roll out into thick rotis. It should be about 1/4 inch thick. 
  5. Heat your tava real to steaming temperature.
  6. Wet your palm and spread evenly across one surface of the roti.
  7. Place this wet side on the tava. Reduce heat.
  8. Allow it to cook for a minute.
  9. Now turn the tava so that the other surface of the roti now is directly on the flame. If the roti falls off, use your traditional roti holder to hold and turn the naan.
  10. Spread butter on the top and butter naan is ready to serve.
