Tandoori naan is one of the favorite and famous Indian bread which is mostly cherished with butter paneer, Dal makhani, shahi paneer, paneer labadar or butter chicken...the list is endless.
On popular demand of kids tried this naan recipe both on tawa and cooker.
Original and authentic naan is made with maida but to make it more healthy for kids I made this with 100% whole wheat flour.
I used to make simple tandoori roti which is already uploaded in my blog, but kids wanted restaurant style naan so tried my hands on it and it was a big hit....needless to say picture is saying it all.
I have uploaded recipe of stuffed tandoori naan kulcha which is super easy and a great breakfast recipe.
You can make naan both on tawa and cooker. Cooker naan is more crunchy than tawa one. Tawa naan is very soft and melt in mouth but if you want little crunchy go for cooker naan, I have uploaded picture of both cooker and tawa naan.
MAKE SURE NOT TO USE NON-STICK TAWA AND NON-STICK COOKER.
Enjoy and impress your kids.
