No Hassle Naan Bread

Easy Naan Bread

Who doesn’t love a warm handful of Naan bread when enjoying a good curry or butter chicken? How about if it comes fresh out of your very own oven? It really is much more simple than you may think as this recipe (and believe me, there are about a million out there) doesn’t require any yeast or extensive rising time. I’ve used chopped garlic, kosher salt & fresh cilantro to garnish these ones but feel free to use whatever tickles your fancy! I did a rosemary version once that was pretty fantastic. Really good Naan bread requires Ghee (clarified butter) which can normally be found in your grocery stores ethnic section. You can sub oil if you can’t find it though, but it’s much better with ghee.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 4 tbsp Ghee (or oil)+ extra to grease baking sheet
  • A little bit of rock salt, chopped garlic & chopped cilantro to garnish


Sift together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl and make a “well” in the center. In a separate bowl mix together melted ghee and milk and then pour into the well and incorporate the two to make a soft dough. Knead for 6-7 minuets adding additional flour if required. Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover with shrink wrap and a tea towel, and then let rest for 10- 15 minutes in a warm place.

Pre heat oven to 350, lightly grease a baking sheet with ghee, and put sheet in oven to preheat. Using equal size dough balls, gently stretch out dough to form thin flatbreads. Sprinkle with garnish, pat it into dough slightly and put onto pre heated baking sheet and into oven. Bake the Naan for 6-7 minutes until slightly puffy and then finish directly under the broiler to brown tops.
