Originally from Punjab, naan is a dish we almost always order at restaurants because of the misconception that it is tough to make at home! Why don’t you give it a try now? Not only is this Soya Naan easy to prepare but very nutritious too, because of the fortification of whole wheat flour with soya flour, along with the use of curds and soya oil too. If you are under the impression that tava cooking will not result in the same aroma and texture as a tandoor, try this sequence of tava and open flame cooking for a pleasant surprise!
