There are many types of recipe available for Naan. Each recipe has a new twist and a method for preparing a Naan bread.

But what I am sharing here about the Naan recipe is a simple and easy method which does not require to add any additional ingredients like yeasts, baking powder and baking soda.

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

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.
