Tawa Naan | Plain Naan || How to Make Tawa Naan with step-by-step photos.... 

Tawa Naan is the most popular bread in Pakistan, Traditionally naan is cooked in a tandoor (hot clay oven) But I find at home tawa naan is much easier to make, Tawa naan turns out soft and tastes great hassle-free no tandoor or no stove is needed.

Tawa naan is quite easy and simple, just like chapati but a little tricky part will be applied to make this naan, we are not cooking naan in the oven nor using any yeast in it 


Naan goes well with cholenihari, payehaleem, or any gravy-based dish so let's begin
