  • Now flip the tava with naan over flame and try to cook on all sides moving the tava in all directions. (if you do not want to cook the naan on the open flame then you can cook the naan on the pan it self by pressing with spatula and flipping both sides and cooking till golden spots appear). But cooking on the flame will give that burnt tandoor effect like the one we get in cooking with tandoor in dhaba or restaurants.
