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

Katakat Recipe


Katakat Recipe | Taka Tak Recipe || How to Make Katakat with step-by-step photos

Taka tak or Katakat is a delicious, spiced, and relish offal dish, Katakat or taka tak is a special meat dish popular throughout Pakistan. It is a dish originating from Karachi, Pakistan_ This is also called street food

kata-kat is a traditional dish made with a combination of different meat parts, typically offal, such as kidneys, brain, testicles, hearts, liver, and lungs. The meat is combined with various spices such as coriander, ginger, chilis, and garam masala, along with tomatoes, and onions_ It is then cooked on a griddle and served with paratha or roti bread on the side.

The dish's name is an onomatopoeia from the sound of the two sharp blades that hit the griddle as they cut up the meat. It is still an open question whether the correct name is kata-kat or taka-tak_Kata Kat uses a flatter version of Karahi as a griddle and two flat short-handled Karahi spatulas or implements resembling Putty knives as cutting and stir-frying devices

But here I brought some changes in cooking kata kat, I used a simple pan along with 2 wooden flat spoons, that helped to chop organs into tiny-sized, not use any griddle, nor any specific pan or pot, to tell this dish could be prepared in a regular pot or pan

But if you want to have some fun or desire you can use an ample griddle with a sharp blade cutter which will help in chopping. By the way, you can also check out my other offal recipes on the blog gurda masala,kaleji bunmutton magaz masala,bhuni kaleji masala,bhuni kaleji mixed
