Butter Naan

Naan is a north Indian flat bread.Naan is usually oven baked or in restaurants they use tandoor, a clay oven to prepare it. It is served with curries and gravies.I tried Naan on tava or dosa pan. it came out well. Soft from inside and light crisp from outside complimented each other well. Its very very easy and you will enjoy preparing it at home. When we prepare and serve a dish to the family and guests, which is usually available only at restaurants gives us immense happiness.
