Garlic Naan Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 23:50:00
Garlic Naan, is one of the famous North Indian dishes. I am sure all the north Indian food lovers will love this dish. Any spicy side dish like veg kolhapuri, Kadai paneer, palaak paneer will be a good combination with this. Basically it is prepared just like Naan , and the only difference is that some spicy masalas are added to it.. Usually it is cooked in a tandoor but in case if you do not have it , there is absolutely no reason to worry. You can cook it in gas tandoors or electric tan doors which have now flooded the market. If you do not have even these, you can even cook it in the ordinary tawa ( pan ) on the gas stove. Now let me tell you in detail,  the process of cooking garlic naan.
