  • Stand Mixer
  • Rolling Pin
  • Skillet


  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 cup self rising flour
  • ¼ cup butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt optional topping
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped, optional topping


  • In an electric mixer, combine the Greek yogurt and self-rising flour until a dough starts to form (I used the dough hook attachment). If the dough is dry, you can add another Tablespoon of yogurt. If it's too tacky, add more flour, a Tablespoon at a time. Continue to knead until the dough comes together. (You can also do this step by hand, but it will take about 15 minutes and some muscle).
  • Lightly flour a work surface, and roll the dough into a large ball. Cut the dough into 6 pieces.
  • Roll out each piece of dough to about 1/4" thickness and 6 inches in diameter.
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and brush with butter (or olive oil). Cook naan on each side for about 2 minutes. It should start to bubble up and lightly char.
  • Remove from the skillet, brush with melted butter, garlic salt, and chopped cilantro as desired.
  • Serve warm.


  • You may need more or less flour depending on your altitude and humidity levels. I ended up using about 1 1/4 cups of flour. Always start with less and add more as needed.
