step 5

  • STEP 5.5 add the flour mixture and mix until combined.

step 6

  • STEP 6.6 also add the grated garlic. Start adding the remaining 3-4 tablespoons of flour. Add 1 tablespoon at a time and add more if the flour is too sticky.

step 7

  • STEP 7.7  i added around 3-4 tablespoons flour at this point. The dough will be sticky, so do not add more flour to make it dry.

step 8

  • STEP 8.8 knead with hands or with the dough hook attachment of your stand mixer for 1-2 minutes until the dough is smooth. Transfer the dough to a greased bowl. Keep aside for 90 minutes.

step 13

  • STEP 13.1 heat up an iron skillet on medium-high heat. I really recommend using an iron skillet to make these naan. Take a dough ball and roll it into an oval shape, around 10 to 11 inches long and 6 inches wide. Apply little oil on top of the dough before you try to roll it. Also oil your roller.

step 14

  • STEP 14.Dip your finger in water and then sprinkle some nigella seeds on top. This is optional.

step 15

  • STEP 15.Transfer the rolled naan onto the hot skillet. Let it cook for couple of minutes until you see bubbles on top. Brush the naan at this point with the prepared garlic butter. With the help of a tong, remove the naan from skillet, flip and transfer directly to the gas.

step 16

  • STEP 16.If you want you can cover your burner with aluminium foil before you begin cooking the naan.

step 17

  • STEP 17.Cook the garlic naan for 15-20 seconds (directly on gas) until nicely golden brown from both the sides.
