Naan Indian Flatbread recipe made with ingredients you likely have in your pantry. No skill is required to make this naan recipe – so simple and easy- to-follow step by step recipe. Well the secret to soft and fluffy naan is simple chemistry . A bread needs a base and a acid to make it rise and since baking soda is a base and has no acid – I have added curd to my recipe. You can also add vinegar or lime juice instead of curd. Now baking soda + curd needs a liquid to create that chemical reaction and I have used CLUB SODA to add that carbonation and extra bubbles to my dough.
On the other hand one can substitute BAKING POWDER instead of baking soda in this recipe as baking powder has both the acid and base already mixed in it and all we need is a liquid to give it a chemical reaction- add club soda. Try these fluffy naans made -from-scratch and you will be amazed at the results. Different types are naan are shown below- Plain naan, kalonji naan and garlic naan.
