Homemade Tandoori Naan Recipe



Homemade Tandoori Roti ||Tandoori Naan || How to make tandoori naan With step-by-step photos

Tandoori naan is the most popular leavened flatbread. mostly cooked in a tandoor (clay oven) it's one of the most ordered flatbreads in a Pakistani hotel. Pakistan is the most bought naan available at every second tandoor or hotel. Mainly this roti is served with gravy-based curry or dal (lentils)

A typical naan recipe involves mixing white or whole wheat flour with active dry yeast, salt, and water. The dough is kneaded for a few minutes, and then set aside to rise for a few hours. Once risen, the dough is divided into balls of about 150g, flattened, and cooked. In Pakistani cuisine, naans are typically flavored with fragrant essences, such as rosewater, khus (vetiver), or butter or ghee melted on them. Nigella seeds are commonly added to naan as cooked in Indian and Bangladeshi restaurants 


Here I kneaded naan dough by mixing a little milk with water to make it stay soft. No other fancy ingredients are added in this recipe except for salt and instant dry active yeast I cooked on the stovetop this bread can be baked in the oven for 3-4 minutes at 250 C or 450 F whatever is easy for you you can do to make it at home

For the best result follow my detailed step-by-step photo  instructions and tips below the recipe card


Recipe note:

  1. Naan is always made with all-purpose flour maida. you can substitute all-purpose flour with wheat flour. I have made them with fine flour
  2. Naans are pretty much made in different shapes and thicknesses. for fluffy naan bread make them slightly thicker.do not make them too thick they remain uncooked
  3. Naan turns hard if you toast too long, not enough moisture in the dough, if you toast on low heat, or not knead the dough enough
  4. Naan doesn’t get bubbles if your pan is not hot enough, the dough is not moist enough, or if improper leavening
  5. If you don’t like to add yeast to the dough then alternately add ½ tsp baking powder and ¼ tsp baking soda this is a substitute for yeast
  6. Cover up the cooked naan with a kitchen napkin and keep it in the hot pot to make naan hot and fresh for a long time

In a large mixing bowl, add flour, salt, and mix. Mix sugar and yeast in lukewarm milk and water. cover and let it keep aside for 10 minutes until bubbling



After 10 minutes, pour the yeast mixture into the flour. Begin to knead the dough. you may need more water or milk than mentioned in the recipe card



Keep kneading the dough very well by adding oil until soft and pliable using dough hooks or a stand mixer or with the help of a hand. Whatever is convenient for you. It must be smooth and not sticky. Cover and rest for 30 mins to an hour


After 10 minutes, punch the dough to remove excess air from the dough



Divide the dough into equal portions



Each dough ball's weight should be around 150g. The flour in the rolling area is very light. too much flour will toughen the naans. Place a dough ball and flatten it. 



Roll and stretch the dough to an oval/round. Wet the upper naan surface very well with water


Heat a griddle or Tawa. ensure first your pan is hot enough not extremely hot. Gently remove the naan from the counter and place it on the hot pan. and make sure the wet part goes in the bottom. Let it cook for around a minute. naan should be dry from the surface before the turn. Now flip the pan/Tawa upside down



And cook naan directly on flame till they turn a golden brown color. Gently scrape the naan from the bottom and remove



Prepare all the naan the same way



Naan is ready to serve



Serve hot with the curry and dal

chocolate fudge recipe

Recipe notes:

  1. Cream: Do not use half-and-half, whole milk, or any other liquid because the ganache won’t be set up properly. For a non-dairy alternative, use canned coconut milk. See recipe note.
  2. Chocolate: You can use semi-sweet chocolate (recommended), bittersweet chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate. 


Best Chocolate to Use in Chocolate Ganache

The best chocolate for chocolate ganache is a pure chocolate baking bar, Pure chocolate is sold in 4-ounce bars in the baking aisle, Do not use chocolate chips because they will not melt into the best ganache consistency. If you must use chocolate chips, make sure they are higher quality chocolate such as Ghirardelli brand semi-sweet chocolate chips.

For the traditional chocolate ganache

I recommend using semi-sweet chocolate. This is the most commonly found chocolate in the baking aisle. Semi-sweet chocolate contains 35 – 45% cacao and is usually sweeter than bittersweet or dark varieties and darker than milk chocolate and white chocolate.

TIP: The best tool for chopping chocolate is a large serrated knife. The grooves help chip away the hard chocolate bar texture 


These 2 Tricks Make Chocolate Ganache Even Easier

  1. Here are my 2 super simple tricks that make ganache even easier to make.
  2. Chop the chocolate as fine as possible. The finer you chop the chocolate, the quicker it melts with the cream. If the chocolate is in large chunks, it won’t fully melt. 
  3. Pour the warm cream over the chopped chocolate and let it sit before stirring. After you pour the warm heavy cream over the chopped chocolate, let it sit for a few minutes. During this time, the chocolate will soften and begin to melt which means that you won’t need to over-stir it.

Piped Chocolate Ganache:

Choose chocolate ganache if you’re craving a pure chocolate topping for your desserts. Once it cools and sets, you can pipe it onto your favorites including chocolate cupcakes  



Whipped Ganache

Let’s take chocolate ganache 1 step further. Did you know that you can beat ganache into a whipped frosting consistency? Think whipped buttercream, but not as sweet or heavy. Once the chocolate ganache cools completely, whip it on medium-high speed until light in color and fluffy in texture, about 4 minutes. 




Chop the chocolate bar with the help of a sharp serrated knife



Place finely chopped chocolate into a heatproof bowl or metal bowl 



Heat cream on the stovetop just simmering if it’s boiling the cream is too hot and could separate or even burn the chocolate

Once you see a little simmer around the edges, Turn off the heat and immediately pour the warm cream over the chocolate 



Let the two sit for a few minutes before stirring  



 Stir until smooth

After you stir the chocolate and warm cream together



Use the ganache right away as a fruit dip or drizzle on top of cakes, cupcakes, pound cakes, ice cream, and more



But if you wait about 2 hours and let it cool completely, the ganache can be scooped with a spoon, spread onto desserts, or piped with piping tips. 


Chocolate ganache is ready to use in a recipe, transfer into the bottle or container 

Chocolate ganache can be stored in the fridge
