Naan - Eggless No yeast No Oven Stovetop Naan or Tawa Naan

Soft and Fluffy Naan is not tough to make at home if you follow this trick. All you need is a cast iron tawa that every Indian household have one and a wire rack. This recipe is yeast free as well. If you eat egg, you can use 1 egg while making the batter and omit water. Even without egg it turns out very soft. Trick is to rest the dough for at least 3 hrs or even more to get soft and fluffy Naans. You can use the same dough for making pizza. Hope you enjoy them.


All purpose flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Yogurt 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) (At room temperature)
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon
Baking powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Baking soda 1/8 Teaspoon
Milk 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (At room temperature)
Water 3 Tablespoon (required to adjust the consistency of the dough)
Oil 2 Tablespoon
Butter 2 Tablespoon
Finely chopped garlic 1/2 Tablespoon
Finely chopped cilantro 1 Tablespoon
Chaat masala powder 1/2 Teaspoon



1. Take all purpose flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a big bowl. Mix together all the dry ingredients.

2. Add yogurt and milk to the bowl. Mix well to make a sticky dough. Add water if desired to get a sticky consistency.

3. Take some oil in your hand and knead the dough well. Cover with saran wrap and let it rest for 3 to 4 hours.

4. Divide the dough into equal portions.

5. Let the dough balls rest for 5 minutes.

6. Take a dough ball and roll it into naan. Apply water on one side of the naan and place it on a hot tawa. Press the naan such that it sticks to the tawa.

7. When the naan starts to turn golden brown, flip it to a grill and cook it over high heat until brown on the other side as well. Repeat to make other naans.


8. Serve the naan with paneer tawa masala or any gravy of your choice.


For garlic naan, sprinkle some grated garlic and coriander all over the naan before flipping and cooking on the other side.
