Every time i pronounce this dish make me laugh....'Naan' in Tamil means 'Me' Usually i don't like naan very much for the very simple reason it is charred sometimes.According to my dad who is a siddha doctor Eat charred food is not healthy. It may trigger a system that has a chance of getting cancer.But i do love to eat Naan which is not charred.I learnt this dish from chellam aunty but normally using a tandoor makes it charred.And also we need tandoor.She taught Naan using baking powder, curds and milk.But when i first saw nice golden Naan that too using oven in my friend Ramys's blog,which i wanted to try. But unfortunately my system crashed and wasn't able to get the recipe when i needed.Fortunately my cousin Suvi told me the recipe over phone and at last i tried and it came pretty good.
