Tandoori Naan

By Divyagattani88
Tandoori Naan is a traditional and very popular Indian flatbread made in tandoor. I have made this one at home on a gas tandoor. Traditionally you get these long-oval shaped bread in restaurants but I have made them in small and round shape. It is totally upto your choice what shape you want to give. 
   To give a little twist to these naans you can add garlic on the top when you are baking or cooking. Along with that you can add aniseeds, poppy seeds (khus-khus) or nigella seeds (kalonji) on the top. It gives good flavor and a nice texture to it and makes it look more like restaurant style.

9. Bake it in a tandoor or gas tandoor as I did. 
10. Serve hot with butter on top.

Handy Notes :

# During making the dough you can add yogurt if you want.

# You can also add a little amount of oil while kneading the dough. 
# Instead of sprinkling the topping on the top, you can mix the toppings into the dough itself.
