Naan bread


  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2-3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced (optional)


    step 1

    Combine warm water, yeast, and sugar in a large bowl; let sit for five minutes or till bubbly. Add olive oil, yogurt, egg, salt and 2 cups of flour. Stir till smooth.

    step 2

    Add enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead a few times on a floured counter until smooth

    step 3

    Place dough in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled.

    step 4

    Preheat a skillet to medium heat.

    step 5

    Cut dough into eight pieces. On a floured surface, roll out each piece into a 6" circle.

    step 6

    Add a little oil or non-stick spray to the skillet. Cook each circle for 2-3 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown on the bottom. Flip over and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

    step 7

    Brush the top (the bubbly side) of each naan with melted butter. I added garlic to my butter, but that is optional.
