In this pandemic situation when you can't go out to eat and are hesitant to order , try Tawa Nan at home.
These are surprisingly very easy.
I have used a combo of both atta (whole wheat flour) and maida(all purpose flour) , but you can use only maida.
In winters you need to rest the dough longer .
For the dough:
All purpose flour 250grams
Whole wheat flour 250 gms
Baking powder 1/2 tsp
Baking soda 1/4 tsp
Sour curd 1/2 cup
Warm water 1 cup + 2 tbsp
Salt 1 1/2 tsp
For the topping:
Garlic cloves finely chopped
Coriander leaves finely sliced
Unsalted Butter / ghee
Mix all the dry ingredients mentioned under dough
Mix in curd.
Now add water slowly to make a soft dough.
Knead for a couple of minutes.
Smear some oil ,cover and let it rest for 3 hours. In winters it may need more time.
Finely chop garlic and fresh coriander.
Divide the dough into ten equal parts.
Roll them into balls and keep them covered .
Heat an iron tawa.
Roll one ball into a medium thick roti approximately 5-6 mm thick.
Brush some water on it.
Place the Nan with water surfaced on the tawa.
Keep flame on medium.
Brush water on the side exposed. Sprinkle garlic, coriander or Nigella seeds and coriander. Press lightly.
Cook for approximately 1 minute. You will see bubbles on the surface.
Flip the tawa in such a way that the Nan is facing direct flame.
Rotate the tawa over the flame so as to get char marks all over the surface.
Transfer the roti to a plate.
Smear butter or ghee.
Make medium thick roti as thin ones upon cooking tends to harden like papad and very thick ones don't cook properly.
Don't use a non stick tawa.
Use iron or cast iron tawa.
Use toppings as per your liking.
