Phudina Naan, appetizingly coloured dish with an attractive flavour.


Plain flour 1 1/4 Cup (20 tbs) (maida)
Dry yeast 1/2 Teaspoon
Sugar 1/2 Teaspoon
Oil 1 Tablespoon
Salt To Taste
To be ground into a coarse phudina paste (using 1 tbsp water)
Mint leaves 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (phudina)
Cumin seeds 1 Teaspoon (jeera)
Finely chopped green chillies 1 Teaspoon
Sugar 1 Teaspoon
Lemon juice 1 Tablespoon



Combine the yeast, sugar and 5 tbsp of lukewarm water in a bowl, mix gently and cover with a lid and keep aside for 4 to 5 minutes.

Combine the plain flour, yeast-sugar mixture, phudin paste, oil and salt and in a deep bowl and knead into a soft dough using little water.

Cover the dough with a lid or wet muslin cloth and allow it prove till it increases in volume slightly (approx. 30 minutes).

Divide the dough into 6 equal portions.

Press a portion of the dough flat on a rolling board and roll out into an oblong of 125 mm. (5") using a little plain flour for rolling. 

Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and place the naan, cook it on one side till it puffs slightly and then turn over. 

Cook it on the other side till it puffs a little and then roast it on an open flame till it turns golden brown from both the sides. 

Repeat steps 5 to 7 to make 5 more naans. 


Brush each naan with a little melted butter and serve immediately.
