Two pieces of naan bread Food Recipe

There are plenty of variety recipe available for Naan. Each recipe has a new twist and method for preparing a Naan .

But what I am sharing here about the Naan recipe is a simple and ordinary method which is used daily in all our Top class Restaurants .

If you check or search for a Naan recipe , you get  some one is using Yeast , another one is using Baking soda ,some other is using Baking powder etc. And even you get that Curd or Yogurt is used with baking powder.

I don't say that these are not a real recipe but does these ingredients really matter for a simple Naan recipe .

Nowadays most people don't like the taste of Yeast or baking soda to their foods. They have a different taste which I personally don't like at all.

They even not good for health also. And these kind ingredients are not used in a top class Restaurants for making a Naan.
