Number of Servings: 8


    8 ounces flour (about 1.5 cups)
    1 teaspoon yeast
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 fluid oz. plain yogurt
    4 fluid oz. warm water
    cooking oil (soybean, canola, whatever)


Dissolve sugar and yeast in the warm water. Measure the flour and salt into a large bowl. When the yeast water is foamy, add it to the flour, and add the yogurt, too. Mix it up with a spoon, then your hands, until it comes together.

Knead it on a floured surface for about 5-10 minutes. Put back in bowl, cover it tightly with cling wrap, and let it rise for 1/2 hour.

Use a large, nonstick pan if you have it. Heat it on high until hot, then turn it down to between Med. and High.

Roll out 1/2 the dough. Prick it with a fork all over. Lightly brush with oil, then slap that side down on the pan. Lightly brush the topside with oil.

Watch the bread! When it's brown, turn it over. It will burn if you don't watch it.

Makes 2 large plate-sized naan (I listed as 8 servings)

    Very yummy! I baked mine under the broiler for 5 minutes (flipped once in the middle) and it came out delicious. Went perfectly with chicken tikka masala. - 6/1/08

    Agree with everyone else, it is great bread. So easy, so quick.
    Another poster asked "I dont understand these directions. So you just cook it on the hot pan, and not in the oven?!"
    the answer is YES! YES! Just like tortillas. Although I may try broiling like other posters.

    This is so easy and delicious. I divided the dough into 6 pieces instead of 2 and it made 6 good sized pieces of Naan. I cooked it on a cast iron skillet. Better than any of the naan I get at the grocery store. - 5/19/09

    Made for my hubbie. He loves naan. I used whole wheat flour, so it was a bit heavier. (Hubbie said it was really good that way too.)I added garlic and broiled it. It took about 5 min on each side. Thanks for the recipe!!! - 1/8/10

    Great recipe. I used a tortilla press to get them thin and also made 8 smaller ones. So easy! - 7/20/10
