yogurt naan

Fluffy, airy & chewy homemade flatbread without yeast.

Don’t be intimidated by bread making, this naan is an easy one to try. If you have homemade yogurt in the fridge and flour in the cupboard, you can make soft and pillowy flatbread the traditional way, without yeast. All you need is your hands, a bowl, and a rolling pin. You don’t need a traditional tandoor oven to get signature beautiful brown blisters either. Homemade yogurt naan is easily cooked in a cast-iron skillet on your stove top. You’ll be amazed watching them puff up into breads right before your eyes.

Brush with melted butter or ghee then enjoy fluffy and chewy flatbread that look like they’re right out of an Indian restaurant. Yogurt naan are great plain, but we recommend you hit then with nigella seeds for that authentic look or roll in some fresh garlic for a massive flavour boost.

The soft, pliable texture makes them perfect for mopping up curries, dipping into labneh or wrapping around fillings. Don’t be surprised if you become addicted to the texture, taste and versatility of homemade yogurt naan.

GLUTEN FREE OPTION

Yogurt naan can be made with gluten-free flour, but the texture will be very different. No raise or signature bubbles but still a tasty bready option if that’s what you need.  The dough is fragile, so make them small and be gentle lifting into the skillet. Cook each side until golden spots appear. A bit of crunch is extra tasty. We highly recommend lots of butter and adding garlic or coriander and a sprinkle of salt to boost the flavour.

Makes: 4-6 depending on the size of your pan
