This soft and fluffy Indian flatbread, enriched with ghee, coriander, and fried garlic, is the perfect accompaniment to a wide array of dishes, from aromatic Dal to creamy Butter Chicken and hearty Aloo Gobi. In this article, we’ll delve into the world of Garlic Naan, exploring its preparation and how you can savor it at its best.

Ingredients to Serve Four:


  • ¾ tsp active dried yeast
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 30ml warm water
  • 240g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Salt, to taste
  • 90ml whole milk
  • 120g Greek yogurt
  • Extra plain flour for kneading and rolling
  • 4 tbsp ghee
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • Handful of coriander, finely chopped

The Perfect Garlic Naan Recipe:

Step 1: Activate the Yeast In a small bowl, combine the yeast, sugar, and warm water. Let it rest for 10 minutes.

Step 2: Prepare the Dough In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the milk and yogurt along with the yeast mixture to form a slightly sticky dough.

Step 3: Allow the Dough to Rise Cover the dough with cling film and place it in a warm spot for about an hour. It should rise nicely, becoming soft and airy.

Step 4: Infuse Garlic into Ghee Heat 3 tablespoons of ghee over low heat in a saucepan. Add the finely chopped garlic and fry for about 30 seconds until it starts to change color. Remove from heat and let it infuse.

More steps:

Step 5: Shape and Cook the Naan Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead it for a minute. Divide it into 4 portions and roll each into a 7-inch diameter naan. Don’t worry about the shape; it’s the taste that matters. Brush the top side of each naan with ghee.

Step 6: Cook to Perfection Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Once it’s hot, brush it with a little ghee. Cook each naan for about 1 minute on each side, or until they develop a lovely golden-brown color.

Step 7: Serve and Savor As you take the naan off the pan, cover it with foil to keep it warm. Pour over the garlicky ghee, sprinkle with freshly chopped coriander, and serve alongside your favorite tikka or curry.
