Naan is an oven-baked Indian flatbread often served with vast varieties of curries, sauces, and even barbecued meat and vegetables. The oval shape of the bread defines and separates it from other Indian flatbreads. Naan is found in most of the cuisines across the Indian subcontinent.


1.5 lb or 350 g strong white flour
5 tablespoons yogurt
5 tablespoons warm water
½ teaspoon active dry yeast
½ teaspoon salt
pinch of sugar
ghee or butter

Preparation Method:

Add warm water, sugar, and yeast. Leave for the yeast to dissolve for a few minutes.

Mix flour and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the center.

Add yeast mixture and yogurt and make it into a soft dough adding about 150 ml of water.

Put the dough into an oiled bowl and leave it covered with a cloth for at least 3 hours.

Divide into about 4-6 pieces. Roll out to 6-8 inch ovals.

Cook for three minutes on each side under a preheated griddle or pan at the highest setting until it has brown spots.
