No worries, you have come to the right place. Let’s check out the options of making homemade no yeast naan.

It is so easy to make naan at home, just like how you do any flat breads. You know, make the dough, portion it, roll out and cook the naan. Don’t be worries about not having a tandoor stove; you can very well make them in a thick pan – generally a cast iron frying pan. Simple!

Back to the no yeast thingy, how do you replace yeast!! It’s so easy – use baking soda and baking powder with sour yogurt. Yeah, the addition of these ingredients give the same result like a yeast bread does – you know, how a soda bread works? The same way.

If the combination works, who are we to not use it and get benefits!! Not me..

So, all you need is to add the leavening agents to the flour, make a stiff, but soft to touch dough, roll them into thin ovals or rounds or any shape and fry them with butter or just slap some water, make plain naan.

Equipment

  • A good thick bottomed frying pan, preferably cast iron pan

Ingredients
  

  • 3 Cups Whole Wheat flour About 450 Grams
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup Yogurt About 120 grams
  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp Grated Garlic Optional
  • 1 tsp Nigella Seeds or Black Sesame Seeds Optional
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped herbs like Coriander or parsley Optional
  • 1/2 Cup Melted Butter Optional

Instructions
 

  • In a large mixing bowl add the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Mix well.
  • Add the grated garlic, nigella or sesame seeds if using.
  • Add Olive oil and the yogurt. Mix well.
  • Add water as required and make a slightly stiff, but soft to touch dough.
  • Cover and rest the dough for at least 30 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 9 roughly same sized balls.
  • Roll each of them into an oval, not too thick and not too thin, on a flour dusted surface.
  • Heat a pan – To cook the rolled dough, brush one side of the naan with melted butter if using to make butter naan, or simply brush with some water. Slap the greased side down on the hot pan.

Notes

  1. Use any flour you have – All purpose flour will also work.
  2. No worries if you don’t have a tandoor stove or a cast iron pan, use a regular tawa or a thick frying pan.
  3. Add the herbs and seeds when you roll the naan dough, if you wish. Just sprinkle and run the rolling pin once on the dough so the toppings stick.
  4. Brush the naan with butter or oil or water and put that side down first to cook.
  5. Do not press the dough when you cook/fry them. This will spoil the texture and the air pockets in the bubbles on the surface.
  6. Serve hot…
