  1. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cumin seeds, and sugar together in a large bowl.
  2. Combine milk and 1 tablespoon oil in a small saucepan; heat over medium heat until warm, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir into flour mixture until small clumps form. Knead dough, adding more flour by the tablespoon if needed, until it is soft and smooth. Let dough rest, about 3 minutes.
  3. Divide dough into 4 equal pieces. Pressed into flat circles on a floured work surface.
  4. Brush a large skillet with remaining 1 tablespoon oil; heat over medium-high heat. Cook circles of dough one at a time until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute half-and-half for the milk if desired.
  • Substitute ground cinnamon for the cumin seeds if preferred.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I have made this twice. The texture is good, but it was a little bland to me. So I added a 1/2 tsp of salt. But overall, a great alternative to the two-hour naan.

I just made this as directed. They look just like the picture! I added more flour during the kneading and shaping to make it easier to work with. I plan to use these for pizzas tonight and I'...

I have made this recipe several times. It's quick and easy! I have omitted the sugar and replaced the cumin seeds with lots of garlic. It's delicious and a great addition to many meals!

Great recipe for a quick naan-like bread! I added 1 tbsp of Fage yogurt and used cumin powder instead. I’d make it again, only making smaller, thinner sized portions...I also cooked mine on a gr...

I was impressed on my first try. I didn’t add the cumin which I will try next time. Though My son thought I had added too many eggs because it had a ‘made from scratch waffle’ taste. No eggs add...

This was quick and easy, exactly what I needed. My only complaint is that I required an additional 1/2 cup of flour or more to get the texture right. However, bread recipes are never perfect wit...

Would definitely make again. Never made naan and didn’t have yeast. I left out the cumin seeds because I didn’t have them and added fresh chopped garlic and garlic powder. Even though I made it ...

Big hit with the family. I liked it because it took only 30 minutes rather than the 3 hours I’m used to. I thought it was bland, but added some spicy mango chutney and it was fantastic.
