  1. Hi! You have a good blog keep it up. Tell me one thing how to make nan's mentioned above. I mean do we have to bake them or simply make them like a chipati?

  2. Thankyou Mahwish Qadeer for your kind words. Now for the naan You can bake them or simply cook them on a Tava Pan. Preheat your oven to Broil on Medium Heat, Cook one side of the Naan on a Tava pan Than using a Spatula place the Naan in the oven under the Broiler, and it will cook the Top of the naan so wonderfully, Then just butter the Naan with Ghee and cover in a washcloth so their warm.
    For the Tava Naan you can try this recipe http://www.nazkitchenfun.com/2013/07/home-made-naan-roti-step-by-step-recipe.html Hope this will be helpful.
