Easy Homemade Naan Bread Recipe
This easy homemade naan bread only requires 5 ingredients (and you don't need any yeast!). It's soft, chewy, and comes together in just 30 minutes.
- 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.
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.
