Homemade Garlic Naan - Host The Toast


  1. Combine the sugar, yeast, and 2 tbsp of water in a bowl. Cover and keep aside for 10 minutes or till the yeast swells up.
  2. Combine the wheat flour, soya flour, yeast-sugar mixture, salt, oil, and fenugreek leaves in a bowl and knead into a soft dough, using enough water until it is smooth.
  3. Cover the dough with a lid or wet muslin cloth and allow it to prove till it increases in volume slightly (approx. 20 to 30 minutes).
  4. Divide the dough into equal portions.
  5. Press a portion of the dough flat on a rolling board and sprinkle 1 tsp of garlic over it. Roll out into an oblong of 125 mm. (5″) using a little wheat flour.
  6. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook the roti on one side till it puffs slightly and then turns over.
  7. Cook it on the other side till it puffs a little and then roasts it on an open flame till it turns golden brown from both sides.
  8. Repeat steps 5 to 7 to make more roti.
  9. Brush each naan with 1/8 tsp of butter and serve immediately.

Fenugreek and soya flour help to lower blood glucose levels and thus an excellent recipe for diabetics. Being cooked in very minimal fat this Indian bread suits a low-cal menu as well.
