Naan is one of the most known indian bread which you will find it in any restuarant. Tradiitionally the naan’s are made in a tandoor, but as most of the houses wont have a tandoor at home, u can prepare it very easily on a griddle or even a oven as well. The naan which i prepare doesn’t contain yeast , they come out very nice soft and fluffy. Even wiki has a page for Naan and according to it it is a famous bread not only found in India but even in pakistan and other  persian countries as well.
