Tandoori Naan

Tandoori Naan is a traditional and very popular Indian flatbread made in tandoor. I have made this one at home on a gas tandoor. Traditionally you get these long-oval shaped bread in restaurants but I have made them in small and round shape. It is totally upto your choice what shape you want to give. 

To give a little twist to these naans you can add garlic on the top when you are baking or cooking. Along with that you can add aniseeds, poppy seeds (khus-khus) or nigella seeds (kalonji) on the top. It gives good flavor and a nice texture to it and makes it look more like restaurant style.
