Naan Roti without tandoor/micro oven

Some Indian dishes are truly ruling all over the world and butter naan is one of them Who does not like butter naan and Paneer Butter Masala combo ?We, bengalis are not very accustomed with making this dish at home though. At least when we make something at home,then luchi or parota will definitely be dominating.
So I was googling for this recipe.This is the mixture of some 2-3 recipes with some own invention. I find it to be the simplest recipe.Also its very delicious.This was my first attempt and it was a hit! Naan was soft tender and was melting in mouth.After making this dish I just felt it was ridiculously simple and still I never tried it before! I was just blaming myself for this.Now I am going to cook this often.Also the best part is that you don't need any tandoor or micro oven in doing this.Only gas oven is enough. :).Also this one is pure veg recipe as I did not add any egg into it.I could not manage to get the photos while making it as I was the cook and photographer both.And I was afraid of burning the rotis.So only finished product photo I have uploaded.


  1. Maida - 2 Cups
  2. yeast - 1 tsp
  3. sugar - 1 tsp
  4. salt - 1tsp
  5. oil - 1tsp
  6. baking powder - 1 tsp
  7. Curd - 1-1/2 tbsp (optional as I forgot to add this but still my naan roti came out very well :))
  8. Warm water - 1 cup
  9. butter for topping 


  1. Mix dry yeast into one cup of warm water.It should be just warm not boiling hot.Yeast will be activated in warm after.About 10 mins later you can see some froths.
  2. Then add sugar,salt and oil into the yeast water.
  3. Add Baking powder and curd to the maida.
  4. Now kneed the maida with this mixture of yeast water.The dough should be very very soft,otherwise naan roti will be sticky.Add one drop of oil on the dough and cover it and keep it aside for at least 2 hour.You can see the size of the dough has become almost double.It means that its ready to be cooked now.
  5. After 2 hours again kneed the dough.Now make 6 same sized balls out of the dough.
  6. You can either roll it using a roller or you can use your own hand to spread it .It should be around 1/4" thick.
  7. Now place it directly on the flame.I use one iron grid and place this on top of that.
  8. Now rotate it on the flame so that all the parts of the roti get even flame.
  9. Once you see bubbles coming up,turn the other side up.I use a flat spoon to do this.Once the other side is also done,place it on a plate and add butter on top of it.
  10. Serve hot with your favorite dish.I like Paneer Butter Masala/Dal Makhani/Chilly Chicken with this.
