Homemade Naan

Ingredients

  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup look warm water
  • Also need 1/2 cup all-purpose for rolling
  • We also need cast skillet
  • Note: Do not use non stick

Instructions

  • Add the flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda to a large mixing bowl.
  • Mix water and yogurt together. Then whisk in oil.
  • Pour the wet ingredients right into the middle of the dry and begin mixing the wet with dry using a spatula. When the mixture is combined and starting to form a ball. Use your hands to gently knead. It should be sticky and be soft.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let sit in a warm place 1 1/2 hours or overnight in the fridge.
  • Divide the dough into 8 equal balls and using a rolling pin. Roll each ball of dough into an oval shape.
  • It should be about 7 inches long and about 1/4-inch thick. Repeat that process for the rest of the dough.
  • Warm a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Make sure the pan is hot. Brush both sides of the naan with melted butter.
  • Place the naan on the hot skillet, cover with a lid and bake for 1 minute. Don’t walk away. Bake until you see bubbles starting to form.
  • Flip and cook for 1-2 minutes on the other side, until large deeply toasted spots appear on the underside. Be careful not to burn but it should be a deeper color than brown.
  • Immediately, brush with a bit more butter if desired(recommended). Place in a warm plate. Serve warm.

    Hello Ann,

    Thanks for the amazing recipe! It turned out better than any other naan I have tried in restaurants and the store bought frozen ones could never compete with this! I thought making Naan was very difficult but your recipe turned out to be as easy as making everyday wheat roti. I am an Indian Muslim living in the west and finally being able to make something of my heritage and with such precision was so satisfying 🙂 Our first homemade naan ever and best I have ever had!

  2. YUM this looks so good! I love naan!

    1. I adore Naan too Claire! I literally ate it with every meal this weekend. 🙂

  3. OMG yes! Thank you! I adore naan, and although the frozen ones from Trader Joes are good, they’re nothing on the fresh stuff covered in butter. I just ate, but this post made me so hungry! Definitely going to pin this for later!

    1. I love the trader joe’s naan too Megan. But these are so super fast that I can whip them up in no time. 🙂

  4. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love naan, but finding it where I live is close to impossible. I am definitely pinning this for (very near) future use.
