While not a true naan bread, this sure works in a pinch!
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 powderRead 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!!!
Didn’t have self rising flour, so used this easy alternative Ingredients cup all-purpose flour1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder1/4 teaspoon salt
Super Smokey even on medium heat. Not great taste.
So long as you aren't expecting a spot-on version of naan, this is a ridiculously easy and delicious way to get flatbread on the table in almost no time flat. I halved the recipe since I live in a 2 person household, and it was perfect. Took me about 20 minutes start to finish, and the resulting bread was slightly tangy, super tender, and perfect for a whole host of applications. I ended up pan-frying them in about a teaspoon of oil each, which resulted in a lovely quasi-flour gordita effect. 10/10 will make again, especially since I'm trying to make as many things at home as possible while grocery prices are so high!!
Loved this recipe. So simple. I had to add the salt and baking powder because I didn't have self-rising flour, but it was very easy and tasted great. More like biscuits than Naan, or maybe something in between, but we were out of the fresh Sourdough I get from Jyan Isaac Bread every week and I was able to whip this up in a half hour from measuring out the flour to serving it at the table. My husband thought it was great, too.
I made it exactly as the recipe indicated and loved it. Next time I will add some garlic and seasoning. Wasn't as smokey as I thought it would be cooking it - which was nice.
Easy and quick recipe! I had no plain yoghurt, so I used tama Valley mango.
Sooo delicious with curry! A+++++
keep getting too dense naan with this recipe By all means, keep the hood vent on or open a window. Lots of smoke. will try to let the self rising floor rest a bit before cooking the dough, maybe that will help it from getting too dense.
Never again will I buy Naan. This was so good and so easy. I used non-fat Greek yogurt because that was all I had in the fridge.
Nice quick alternative to the yeast version. I didn't have enough full fat yogurt so I did 1/2 c sour cream and 1/2 cup yogurt. I brushed the bread with ghee and crushed garlic before pan frying and sprinkled a little salt on the bread. It worked out very nicely.
Great recipe. I used a cast iron skillet, no grease or oil! I think it cooks and tastes better.
This was so easy and good. I can see why it made top 30 for 2020!
I never leave reviews... However, this one is so great had to say so! It was actually fun to make. Made exactly, but plan to add different spices for different occasions. If this isn't 'true' Naan that's too bad. This is all I will be making in future.
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!
Not as good as regular Naan, but definitely good for such a quick recipe. I used 1 1/2 cups of flour because I had two recipes, one said 1 1/4 c and one said 1 3/4 I think it was fine. I rolled them fairly thin and it took quite a while to cook. I used my electric griddle, outside since it said cooking them could get smokey. I will make these again.
Fantastic, I make it into eight balls, store in the refirgerator and make one at a time, use 0% greek yogurt and it reduces the calories to 92 per slice. Yummy!
I made my own self rising flour for this recipe. This is now my favorite Naan bread recipe.
I brushed one side with water before putting it in the skillet to form air bubbles in the naan. Water side down.
We really enjoyed this simple naan recipe. But I did not get the nice bubbles inside that you associate with naan. I think I need to (1) knead my dough longer to form more gluten and (2) cook at high heat (NOT medium) next time.
This was the best and I will definitely make this again!! I used 7 ounces of fage yogurt, 1 ounce of okios triple zero yogurt with King Richard self rising flour. There was no smoke. I cut them into longer strips and padded them with floured hands to make individualized pieces. Used cinnamon /sugar as a topping.
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.
Loved this! I don't need to make a trip to the store anymore. The recipe worked perfect as written for me and no smoke.
I absolutely loved this! I went and adjusted it just a touch, used non dairy cashew yogurt, added some flax seeds and replaced a small amount of the flour with dark rye flour. They were incredible and I will be making these regularly.
I am floored by how awesome this recipe is. I had to make it a few times to get my process figured out - but this has quickly become a staple at my house. I use regular flour plus the salt/baking powder ratios suggested at the bottom to make self-rising flour. I also use regular greek yogurt (not non-fat) and the flavor was richer. I found if, once you mix the flour/yogurt together with a fork, you let it sit for about 10 mins, the baking powder activates and the raw dough fluffs a bit in the bowl. Then I scoop a few big tablespoons out onto the counter and add enough flour to get the right consistency to pat it into a rough circle with just my fingers. I get about 6 raw dough circles the size of my palm. I use a large non-stick pan on medium heat with a glass lid. I spray it lightly with oil, season the bottom with whatever herbs suit the meal (like lemon and rosemary, or garlic and onion powder, etc) and add 3 patties with the lid back on (creates a little steam which helps them fluff even more). I cook them 4 mins each side using a timer - they come out golden and fluffy. The amazing thing about this dough is it is a yummy but neutral flavor. You can use herbs to make it savory, add sweets to make it more of a dessert or even add a little wheat germ, ground oats, chia and raisins to make it more hearty, like a breakfast bread. It takes minutes to make and has a ton of clean protein to counter the flour/carb content. It's TRULY amazing. Play with it until you get it to work
DELICIOUS. I added garlic salt. The texture turned out way better than I hoped. I cooked them in a non-stick pan with no oil over medium high and they fluffed up and cooked perfectly, and I didn't have any smoke at all. I don't have a rolling pin so I just pressed them out the best I could with my hands. As a result, they were a smidge thick and very slightly chewy, but if I had gotten them thinner, this wouldn't have been the case. Absolutely great either way. I had this with tofu tikka masala and cucumber raita, both also from this site. Thank you!
Very easy. I believe mine was too thick, so next time, I'll pat it out a little thinner. The taste was good, I was very happy with the recipe and the results.
Simple and delicious! Used organic olive oil to cook in and the finished product had the smell and flavor of a fresh baked biscuit while being tender and chewy.
I love naan. This would be good made keto style with keto flours. Chickpea flour would especially be good. Actually any keto flour would be delicious and I would fry them in grass fed butter! Next time I may sprinkle a delicious herb (your favorite) in the batter. Suggestions: Thyme if served with chicken, cilantro or oregano if served with Mexican food, and basil or rosemary served with tomato foods. Toss in some green or black olives for a real treat and fry in garlic butter, YUM!
Make this exactly as written and it came out great. I hate having to knead anything but this is only for a couple minutes and it’s not bad at all. You do have to keep adding flour because it’s very sticky but it comes out great. You can definitely taste the sour-ness of the yogurt but it goes great with hummus. I’d like to try it with some fresh herbs mixed in like other people have done but it’s also very good plain. I add a little butter in the pan when frying.
Easy to make, measurements were precise! Love that there aren’t many carbs!
Easy and quick. Browned in butter and added a sprinkle of garlic salt. Yum
I made this following the recipe except I used the KitchenAid mixer instead of kneading by hand. I'm not sure what Naan actually is, but this was so good! I didn't make it for any purpose (not for dipping anything), but I dipped it in some butter and it was amazing! Very easy and will make again for sure!!
Way more flour needed than the recipe called for. I also didn’t knead them flat enough so they came out like pancakes (my fault) but they were Quite tasty.
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).
Tender and flavorful, awesome recipe! If you want to add a little more flavor just put in a good pinch of garlic salt and a couple of pinches of rosemary. Great as it is, thought!
My husband accidentally bought vanilla yogurt instead of plain We made it anyway, brushed it with butter and sprinkled it with cinnamon sugar delish!
I added one clove of pressed garlic and greased the pan with ghee. Really easy, really fast, really good!
I added Cardemom to the dough, and then oiled and sprinkled the finished naan with white and black sesame seeds. Think I rolled the dough too thin though, will try it thicker next time.
I’ve never made naan and I made this recipe. It was so easy and so good to eat! Very much a hit in my house and it will continue to be something I make going forward. Thank you for providing this recipe!
Wow! I can’t believe how good this is! I added garlic salt as others suggested and had to adjust the flour to get it just where it isn’t sticking to your hands, as expected. It is a great quick bread!
I will be making this again since 4 personal sized pieces cost $3.50 in my area. So very easy and I am not a 'bread' maker. I used a rolling pin and got them pretty thin. But they still got the bubbles and nice brown spots.
As someone who loves naan, I had to try this recipe. They are very easy to make. I mixed the dough in my stand mixer and flipped it out onto parchment to work. I initially greased my skillet with cooking spray but the first naan was a little too greasy, the rest turned out perfect! I didn't have any issues with smoking, I kept the temp med to med-low and cooked about 3 minutes a side.
