Easy Homemade Naan Bread

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.

Anyone else absolutely love the fluffy, perfectly charred naan that comes fresh to your table at every Indian restaurant? I’m not sure there’s anything better.

I’ve always wanted to try my hand at making a homemade version, and after playing around with some 2-ingredient dough recipes, I knew I could make some pretty tasty naan bread really easily.

The best part? There’s no yeast required!

2-Ingredient Dough:

The base of this recipe is the ever-popular 2-ingredient dough that’s been circling the internet for a few years. All you need is self-rising flour and greek yogurt (I PROMISE it will work!).


How to make your own self-rising flour

If you don’t have self-rising flour (or don’t want to buy any), you can make your own at home.

Combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour with 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. That’s it!

How to make homemade naan:

  1. In an electric mixer (this is the one we always use to make bread), 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 a lot of muscle).

  2. Lightly flour a work surface, and roll the dough into a large ball. Cut the dough into 6 pieces.

  3. Roll out each piece of dough to about 1/4″ thickness and 6 inches in diameter.

  4. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and brush with butter or olive oil. Cook each naan on each side for about 2 minutes. It should start to bubble up and lightly char.

  5. Remove from the skillet, brush with melted butter, garlic salt, and chopped cilantro. Serve warm.

How to store:

We recommend storing your naan bread in a resealable ziploc bag. You can keep it on your counter for about 5 days.

You can also wrap the naan in saran wrap or aluminum foil, then place it in a freezer-safe ziploc bag and store it in the freezer for up to 60 days.

Defrost and heat it in the microwave before serving.

Notes

*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.
