  • 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.

  • Divide dough into 4 equal pieces. Pressed into flat circles on a floured work surface.

  • 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.

Cook's Note:

Substitute half-and-half for the milk if desired.

Substitute ground cinnamon for the cumin seeds if preferred.

I didn't get to finish before the post was made... silly me. No yeast was my naan search. Was making butter chicken and really like the naan with it. Easy to mix, used a rolling pin and it got thin, much thinner than other recipes that u have used. I added ground cumin instead of seeds . Nice flavor, nice smell. Easy to roll, not sticky, put on my skillet with a quick spray of oil and was perfect. Throwing away the other recipes I have. This was fast, easy and exactly what I wanted. Read More

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. Read More

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'm sure they can easily hold up to whatever toppings I put on them and maintain their shape and density. In hindsight, I should have substituted the cumin for oregano. But then, I wasn't thinking about pizza when I was making these. Good recipe. Read More

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 griddle 400 is about right. Bon a petit... Read More

I substituted 1 tablespoon of milk or so with plain non-fat yogurt and it turned out perfectly chewy, it added a bit of subtle flavor to my "naan". Read More

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! Read More

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 added I also thought it had a bit of a breakfast flavour but I would make again and would Tweek it somehow. I loved how it puffed up in the frypan! It would be great with curry! My son suggested chopping up some cilantro finely and rolling the dough in it and it was delicious! Thanks! Read More

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 for a curry, I ended up making mini pizzas with them because I liked them so much. Read More

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. Read More
