How to make homemade naan:

  • In an electric mixer (this is the one we always use to make bread), combine the greek yogurt and self-rising flour until a dough starts to form (I used the dough hook attachment). If the dough is dry, you can add another Tablespoon of yogurt. If it’s too tacky, add more flour a Tablespoon at a time. Continue to knead until the dough comes together. (You can also do this step by hand, but it will take about 15 minutes and a lot of muscle).Easy Homemade Naan Bread Recipe (4)
  • Lightly flour a work surface, and roll the dough into a large ball. Cut the dough into 6 pieces.Easy Homemade Naan Bread Recipe (5)
  • Roll out each piece of dough to about 1/4″ thickness and 6 inches in diameter.

  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and brush with butter or olive oil. Cook each naan on each side for about 2 minutes. It should start to bubble up and lightly char.Easy Homemade Naan Bread Recipe (7)
  • Remove from the skillet, brush with melted butter, garlic salt, and chopped cilantro. Serve warm.

How to store Homemade Naan:

We recommend storing your naan bread in a resealable ziploc bag. You can keep it on your counter for about 5 days.

You can also wrap the naan in saran wrap or aluminum foil, then place it in a freezer-safe ziploc bag and store it in the freezer for up to 60 days.

Defrost and heat it in the microwave before serving.

We love to serve this naan with:

  • Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala
  • Coconut Curry Chicken
  • Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
  • Chicken Curry Rice Bowls
  • Instant Pot Butter Chicken

  1. Lisa Hildebrand says:

    Can you gluetin free flour or wheat flour?

  2. Cyd says:

    Wheat flour should be fine in this recipe. If you have substituted GF flour for regular flour in other recipes, it should be fine with the Naan bread. We haven't personally used it in this recipe.

  3. JoAnn Dinwiddie says:

    What about using Almond flour to make this?

  4. Cyd says:

    Hi JoAnn. We have not used almond flour yet in this recipe.

  5. Kara says:

    Can I use regular full fat yogurt? On quarantine and can’t just go get the Greek kind but have regular on hand.

  6. Cyd says:

    It should work ok. Drain any extra liquid you can from the yogurt first. This is what I found out on the difference:Regular yogurt is strained twice, so there is still some liquid left in the end product. Greek yogurt is strained three times, so most of the liquid is removed. This is what gives Greek yogurt its' thicker consistency and stronger flavors compared to regular yogurt.Hope this helps! Good for you to stay home!!! Stay safe.

  7. Mari says:

    How can this be made vegan?

  8. Sam says:

    Hello, I really appreciate your recipe and enjoyed making the naan myself. However, it is just naan and not naan bread. Naan means bread so saying naan bread is just saying bread bread. I am Indian myself and I find this a bit bothersome. Other than that, your recipe was very easy to follow!

  9. JR says:

    Not to nitpick, but naan doesn’t mean bread. It’s a specific type of bread, and can’t be used universally to describe any bread. But you’re right, saying “naan bread” is redundant. Like saying “hamburger bun bread” or “baguette bread.“

  10. Tina Calkins Harris says:

    There are no measurements for ingredients in this recipe??!!

  11. Kimberley says:

    Can I use sour cream to substitute the greek yogurt? Due to quarantine, its all I have on hand.

  12. Kim says:

    Sam, with what’s going on in the world right now, THIS is bothersome to you? I find your need to pick apart labels/wording of a recipe bothersome at a time like this.

  13. Cyd says:

    Sour cream should work fine too.

  14. Cyd says:

    The entire recipe with ingredients and amounts, plus directions is all there. You need to scroll down to the recipe with the picture. It's in a square.

  15. Sam OB says:

    I’m so confused and irritated!!!! Really??? One cup of Greek yogurt??? One whole cup, to one part flour? That doesn’t make sense unless you’re making paste

  16. Kimberlet says:

    It worked perfect with the sour cream! Thank you for the easy and delicious recipe!!

  17. Rekha says:

    Yes,you are right I think some printing error

  18. Angie says:

    He's only replying to the wording. There will always be some sort of conflict in the world. Let him speak. If he's Indian he should know. Can't stand people who have to put have to inject what is going on in the world and make someone feel like crap because they are just trying to set the record straight and someone like you that had to point out things going on in the world and make what he's saying worthless. So being a holier than thou person. Geeesh

  19. Cat says:

    Made this tonight and I was shocked at how easy it was and how much I loved it. Highly recommend!

  20. Chet says:

    Can I substitute buttermilk for yogurt?

  21. Cyd says:

    We have not substituted buttermilk. But sour cream works or even plain yogurt.

  22. Cyd says:

    Yeah! So glad it worked out for you!!!

  23. Cyd says:

    It's a starting base. You may need to adjust according to your altitude, what yogurt you use, and some need to use sour cream because of limited ingredients in the stores right now. You want your dough to be tacky, but not crumble apart in your hands. Hope this helps. Know you can add a small amount of flour if it's a little sticky. Or small amount of yogurt if too dry. It's on our insta stories today. It will help if you watch it.

  24. J says:

    Does it have to be self rising flour, I only have all purpose

  25. Cyd says:

    I found this for you - you may have to add a little baking powder. There are some cases in which you can substitute the same amount of self-rising flour for the amount of all-purpose flour called for in a recipe. If a recipe calls for ½ teaspoon to 1 teaspoon of baking powder per 1 cup of all-purpose flour, it's safe to swap in self-rising flour.

  26. Robin Burrup says:

    Do you know how many calories are in this

  27. Karina says:

    This is such a tasty recipe. Our family loved them!My question is regarding the consistency of the cooked naan. Is it because of the yoghurt that it appears a little translucent and not cooked after the 2 minutes on each side?We cooked for 3 minutes on each side and still was a little translucent and appeared undercooked. I

  28. Cyd says:

    We don't have the calorie count for this. But you can easily add it into my fitness pal.

  29. Amy says:

    This homemade naan recipe was delicious and so easy! Can't believe the base was just made from plain Greek yogurt and self-rising flour! Brushing the warm naan with melted butter, garlic salt, and garlic salt was a game-changer! My husband and toddlers loved it and I'll definitely be making again. I served with 'oven baked Greek chicken' from Fox + Briar this time and plan to serve with Lazy Genius's 'chicken shawarma' next! So good! Thanks for a great recipe.

  30. Jenny says:

    I used nonfat plain Greek yogurt and all-purpose flour with the salt and baking powder added. It was so easy and me and the kids loved it! Thanks for the recipe!

    Where can I buy a bosh mixer?
