6.Cover it and let it rise for about 3-4 hours.
7.Once done, knead the dough again for a few minutes.
8.Divide the dough into medium sized balls and roll it out to make round/oval shaped Naans which should be at least 1/4 inch thick.
9.Using wet hands, sprinkle the chopped garlic over the Naan and pat it so that it sticks to the Naan. Then sprinkle some black sesame seeds and pat lightly.
10.Flip it and apply some water on the side where there is no filling.
11.Slowly, peel the dough and place the waters side down onto the pan. Let it stay for a few seconds on a medium high heat until you see few bubbles coming over it.
12.Once ready and slightly brown on the bottom, take a flame thrower and toast the bubbles of the Naan until crispy.
13.To serve, brush some butter or ghee and sprinkle some sea salt to taste.


Let’s make some Naan since we are celebrating Deepavali now! Naan is a traditional Indian style of  bread. It’s soft, chewy and slightly toasted for that extra flavour. To make it even MORE irresistible, we are sharing with you our aromatic Garlic Naan recipe, which is a garlic flavoured Naan. Yummy! This dish is usually eaten with curry or dahl… or even biryani such as the one we made recently. But it’s so delicious that you can also eat it as it is!
