This easy and fast yogurt naan bread is a great addition to serve next to your favorite soup or curry. The ingredients are so basic and simple, you can never go wrong with them.
Let me tell you how shocked I was when I made it the first time. Honestly, I didn't expect this to be delicious at all. The dough doesn't look very smooth, but when you cook it, magic happens.
Since I discovered this recipe, I made this no yeast naan bread so many times. It's pretty similar to pita bread and takes no time to make and so little effort compared to a yeasted naan or bread making.
Before you start to make this recipe, measure and prepare your ingredients so the cooking process will go smoothly and easily.
Flour- for this recipe we used all-purpose flour, bread flour will work great as well.
Yogurt- the second ingredient for this recipe is yogurt. Any kind of unsweetened yogurt will work great. We used basic Greek yogurt.
Baking powder- to help the flatbread rise, we used baking powder, and that's it! No yeast and such easy ingredients.
Salt- adding salt is optional, but we definitely suggest adding salt to this recipe. We used kosher salt.
Melted butter- brushing the bread with melted butter is another suggestion that is optional.
Parsley- we like to top the bread with fresh parsley, this step is optional.
In a medium mixing bowl, add the flour, yogurt, and baking powder. Add the salt (optional) and mix with a wooden spoon.
Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead the dough for a few minutes until a soft dough forms.
Roll the dough and divide it into 5 equal pieces. Shape each dough piece into a ball.
Use flour to prevent the dough from sticking and roll each dough piece into a flat circle.
Heat up a pan to medium-high heat for 3 minutes. When hot, place the dough and let it cook for each side for about 2-3 minutes, or until the dough gets dark brown spots and bubbles form. Serve hot with melted butter and parsley on top.
