Method (To roast the Roti)
After you have left the naan dough rest for awhile, it is time to make the roti. In this write-up, we will be sharing two methods of preparing the roti.
Method 1 – Bake roti in the oven
If you have an OTG or oven at home, you can make incredibly fluffy and puffy naan roti in it. First, roll out the dough like regular chapattis. However, as you roll, the size of the roti will shrink. To prevent the dough from sticking to the base, dust the naan with plain flour. Now it is time to add the topping, sprinkle naan with chopped garlic, coriander, and black sesame seed.
Flip the rolled naan onto a baking tray lined with aluminum foil. Place the tray in the oven in a preheated oven and cook for 2-3 minutes. Once the top of the roti is golden brown, pull the tray out of the oven and brush it with melted butter before serving.
Method 2- Make Roti on the Tava
Don’t have an OTG? Don’t sweat! You can also make garlic naan on a regular tava. The process is simple and easy. Heat the Tava as you roll the naan roti. Add the topping (chopped garlic, coriander, black sesame seed). Rub water on one side of the roti so that it can easily stick to the base of the tava. After 40 -50 seconds, turn the tava over the gas burner so that the top of the naan bread can be roasted.
Within minutes the naan bread will cook. Now, brush butter before serving.
