Garlic Butter Naan

Oh I am so happy today,,finely our system started working properly...Because of which I was not able to do anything in it...So I feel I am back to track now with Garlic butter Naan,,,I was thinking of preparing naan from many days,,,so yesterday My hubby was also at home..so thought of preparing this Naan,,,

All Purpose flour 3cup
Warm Milk 3/4 cup
Baking soda 1tsp
salt 1/2 tsp
Sugar 1tsp
unsalted melted Butter 1TBSP
Cooking oil 2tsp

For topping:
Garlic cloves 5-6
Fresh coriander finely chopped 3-4TBSP
Sesame or poppy seeds 4-5tsp

Warm water 1/4 cup(use if the milk in not enough for making soft dough.I used it)
Unsalted melted butter 3tsp for roasting
Cooking oil 1tsp for kneading

I have prepared the dough in my bread machine...Which came out very nice and saved my time..It will take 1.30 hours to prepare dough including resting and raising...Just add all the ingredients (mentioned under heading Dough) and keep the function as dough setting, after one and half hour your dough is ready....
Take out the dough from the pan,grease your palm by cooking oil and knead for 2-3 min by adding oil(use oil under heading extras)and cover with plastic sheet.Keep aside again for another 1 hour(or at least 1/2 hour)...
Make paste of garlic(do not make very fine paste)also add finely chopped fresh coriander to it mix well and keep aside.

Now the soft smooth dough is ready to use.

I prepared the naan in normal Tava..you can also prepare in oven and griddle.
Now make 8-9 balls from the dough. Take a ball grease your palm as well as the ball by oil.

and give naan shape to the balls by using hands(you can also roll it on the rolling pin to save time). and spread the garlic paste on top of it(around 1/2tsp) and sprinkle 1/4tsp of sesame,press gently by hand.

heat Tava in medium flame,put the naan ,sprinkle 1/2tsp of melted butter both side

and cook properly..till the dark brown spot arises then transfer it to serving dish,,,

serve the with any kind of your fave side dish.....
If you don't like the toppings then prepare the plain butter naan by with adding any toppings....

I am serving The Naan with spicy Green moong and cauliflower side dish...
