Shah Jeera Naan (without yeast)

I tried the naan without yeast from Rak's Kitchen..u can find her naan recipe without yeast here..This naan is simple and without yeast..its tastes prefect as we do naan with yeast, thanks a lot Rajeswari for introducing this naan without yeast..The procedure of making naan without yeast is same as we do with yeast, but i have added a tablespoon of caraway seeds, slightly pounded with mortar and pestle to bring out the aroma of caraway seeds which make out this naan more tasty and flavourful..This yeastless naan with caraway seeds goes to Think Spice - Think Caraway Seeds guest hosted by Sathya of Appetite Treats...

2+1/2cups All purpose flour
1/2cup Curd
1tsp Baking powder
1tsp Baking soda
1cup Luke warm Milk
1/4cup Butter
1+1/2tbsp Caraway Seeds
1tsp Sugar
Salt

Pound the caraway seeds coarsely...Sieve maida, baking powder, baking soda together and take the flour in a bowl, pour the milk, curd, salt, pounded caraway seeds and sugar..mix everything and turn as soft dough.. arrange the dough in a greased bowl and cover it with a towel....keep aside for 3hours in a warm place, after 3 hours knead the dough and make out 10-12 even balls...dust the balls generously and roll the dough as naans..

Heat a thick bottomed tawa, apply water on one side of the naan, drop the watered side to the tawa and cook in simmer with lid closed, once they get cooked turn the tawa upside down and cook the otherside on direct flame till they get cooked...

Apply the butter on both sides and serve hot!!!
