Butter Naan Recipe | Prepare Restaurant-Style at your Home

Butter naan is known as an Indian flat bread which is flavoured with butter and goes well with any type of curry. Especially with chicken curry. Butter naan is very tempting you will want to have it more and more.

Many might be unfamiliar with naan bread, it is an Indian flat bread which is traditionally made in a tandoor. But you can even make on a stove top. It is said that the naan resembles the pita bread a lot. The reason is because like the pita bread, naan is also fermented with yeast. But today many people replace yeast with baking powder to make instant naans. While preparing the naan dough, milk and yoghurt are used that gives a distinct flavour to the bread and makes it soft. Usually, naan is served hot quenched in butter or ghee. Sounds delicious. Right?
