Naan is the most popular Indian flat bread recipe. It is best served for lunch or dinner with North Indian curries/ gravies. 

  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoon active yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons herbs

  • In a bowl, combine the yeast, sugar and water. Stir to dissolve then let sit for a few minutes or until it is frothy on top.
  • Once frothy, whisk in the oil, yogurt, and egg until evenly combined.
  • In a separate bowl, combine 1 cup of the flour with the salt.
  • Pour the bowl of wet ingredients to the flour/salt mixture and stir until well combined. Continue adding flour, a half cup at a time, until you can no longer stir it with a spoon.
  • Turn the ball of dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead the ball of dough smooth.
  • Cover the dough and let it rise until double in size.
  • Gently flatten the dough into a disc and cut it into 8 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a small ball.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Roll a ball out until it is about 1/4 inch thick or approximately 6 inches in diameter.
  • Place the rolled out dough onto the hot skillet and cook until the bottom is golden brown and large bubbles have formed on the surface.
  • Flip the dough and cook the other side until golden brown as well. 
  • Brush the naans with melted butter.
  • Sprinkle with herbs and serve.
  • Enjoy!
