This is a rich Indian bread recipe, with the exciting flavour of garlic and green chillies. Handle the dough carefully, just as explained in the recipe in order to get the perfect texture of naan.

While naan is traditionally prepared in a tandoor, this Butter Garlic Naan can be comfortably prepared in a tava at home.

Remember to brush each Tava Garlic Butter Naan with melted butter, just as the Punjabis like it, and serve with your favourite subzi and side dishes like Boondi and Pomegranate Raita or Cabbage and Carrot Kachumber .

This one's a real winner!! My naan turned out quite soft and incredibly tasty, even on its own! I also garnished it a generous amount of cheese to add that extra richness to it! A sinful, crispy delight!
