Home Made Naan Roti Step by Step Recipe

Today I would like to share my recipe of Naan. This is a soft tortilla bread, made out of flour, yeast, salt, kneaded well with milk, or water. Giving you Chewy, soft yummy Naan.
In Asia, Pakistan, India, etc Naan are prepared in a clay oven. But in the middle east, and all over the world today, you can make them in a ordinary oven, or a pan (Tava)

 Naan are usually served, with Currys, Kabobs, or your favorite Tikka's, and chutneys.

In my home Naan are cooked almost everyday. I like to spread a little bit of butter on them for my kids, and they love them They could eat naan everyday. Because there so soft and utterly delicious. While my husband and I enjoy them with currys, and soups. ( you can check out my recipe for  Traditional Karahi Gosht served with Naan Here
