While not a true naan bread, this sure works in a pinch!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix self-rising flour and Greek yogurt together in a large bowl until combined. Transfer to a lightly floured work surface and knead until smooth, adding more flour as necessary to keep dough from sticking, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Pat dough into a rough 9x7-inch rectangle. Divide into 8 equal pieces. Lightly dust each piece with flour and flatten into a semi-rectangular shape, about 1/4 inch thick.

  • Lightly grease a large skillet and place it over medium heat. Add 1 or 2 of the flattened dough pieces to the skillet. Cook until they begin to bubble and brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Flip over and cook an additional 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and repeat with remaining dough until all pieces are cooked. Serve warm.

Cook's Notes:

Cooking these flatbreads can be a bit of a smoky process! Make sure to have a window open or a stove vent on just in case!

I use a homemade self-rising flour mix where, for every 1 cup of all-purpose flour, I add a 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 2 teaspoons of baking powder to make it "self-rising."

No reviews so figured I'd offer my 2 cents. I used more Greek yogurt than the recipe called for so had to use more flour as well. Knead your mixture with more flour as you go to get the right consistency. Turned out just how I wanted once I got there! You can add more salt to taste/I also added garlic powder Read More

Made this in a pinch cause I didn't have yeast to make the real bread. But, it turned out so well, my husband said, why would you want to take all day to make it the long way! Exactly! I have made it several times, sometimes I add minced, buttered garlic, or onion to the dough, and cook. Very, very good! I don't even plan to ever try making Naan with yeast, now! Excellent recipe, and thank you for this! Loved it!!! Read More

Easy, fast, great flavour. I found them a bit dense/heavy, though, so next time will try letting them rise for a bit before frying. To half the recipe I added dry cottage cheese between two rolled out layers and then rolled out thin. Really good! Will definitely be making this again with lots of variations using herbs, spices and seeds, etc. Read More

I violated the rule of following recipes exactly the first time, but since I only had whole-milk yogurt (not Greek yogurt), and I was not about to go to the store during the Covid-19 pandemic, I took a chance and made this anyway. Boy, am I glad I did! This flatbread is easy, fast, and tasteful with a nice tang. I had to add extra flour, but the dough was then easy to knead and roll out. I made a second batch a few days later because we liked it so much. I like the others suggestions of adding some garlic salt or rosemary to suit your own tastes. I tried brushing on some olive oil and sprinkling on some Za'atar after I flipped the bread. Highly recommended! Read More

Really liked it. But then I made it with such yogurt as I had, low fat vanilla yogurt (sugar-added!) I'm going to try it next with a non-wheat flour, maybe coconut or almond (which I will also have to make into self-rising). Read More
