(5-6 units)

  • 300g all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 80ml of water or milk (approximately)
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons plain yoghurt
  • Melted butter/Ghee
  • Finely chopped garlic clove
  • Finely chopped coriander leaves


  • Add the yeast and sugar to the warm milk and mix well. Set aside for 5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl put flour, salt, and yoghurt. Gradually add the milk and yeast mixture to the flour and knead until getting a smooth and soft dough.
  • Put some oil in the palm of your hand to make the kneading process easier.
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap and keep it in a warm place for one or two hours.
  • Knead the dough again and divide the dough into small balls about 6-7cm in diameter.
  • Roll a ball in the flour and flatten it with your hands. Then, with the help of a roller stretch it in a circle or oval leaving in a thickness of 2 millimetres approximately. If the dough sticks to the surface, sprinkle a little flour on the circle so that it does not stick.
  • Sprinkle a little garlic and chopped coriander on top. Press them lightly with the help of the roller.
  • Preheat the oven to the maximum. While the oven is heating, put a frying pan on medium-high heat. Put the bread on the frying pan and cook until small bubbles are formed. Then put the bread into the oven rack.
  • When they are well browned, remove them from the oven and brush with melted butter or ghee on top of every naan.
  • Serve them hot with tandoori chicken or any Indian curry dish.
