Easy Homemade Naan Recipe

·

This Easy Homemade Naan Recipe is fluffy, bubbly, chewy, and brushed with a herby butter on top! It's very simple to make and is so comforting when served warm.

Ingredients you'll need:

  • Instant Yeast
  • Warm Water
  • Honey
  • Milk
  • Egg
  • Salt
  • All Purpose Flour, or bread flour
  • Olive Oil, or melted butter
  • Melted Butter, for serving
  • Chopped Parsley, for serving

My favorite way to enjoy naan is with my Simple Coconut Chicken Tikka Masala that's a high protein, easy weeknight dinner recipe that makes amazing leftovers for throughout the week! Check out the recipe here.

How to Store Leftover Naan? How to reheat?

Store leftover naan at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days. To reheat, you can place it in a toaster oven for a few minutes or in a cast iron skillet for 30 seconds on each side. Just keep a close eye on it (especially when using any type of oven to reheat) since it can dry out quickly if reheated too long.

Ingredients

Servings: 6 naan

  • 1 tsp. Instant Yeast
  • 1/2 cup Warm Water
  • 1 tbsp. Honey
  • 2 tbsp. Milk
  • 1 beaten Egg
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1 3/4 cup All Purpose Flour, or bread flour
  • 2 tbsp. Olive Oil, or melted butter
  • Melted Butter, for serving
  • Chopped Parsley, for serving

Instructions

  1. Bloom the yeast by giving the yeast, warm water, and honey a quick mix in a large bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes, until foamy.
  2. Whisk in the beaten egg, milk, salt, and olive oil.
  3. Add the flour, mix in the bowl until a shaggy dough, then transfer to a clean surface to knead 1-2 minutes, until a smooth and pliable dough.
  4. Place back in the bowl, cover, and set aside in a warm environment for 1-2 hours, until doubled in size.
  5. Slice the risen dough into 6 equal pieces. Use the palm of your hands to roll into individual balls, then cover to rest 15-20 more minutes.
  6. Heat up a cast iron skillet with a very light coat of olive oil over medium high heat, until you see wisps of smoke.
  7. Roll out the naan thin, about 1/8" thick, then place in the hot skillet to cook for 1 minute, until the underside is a deep golden brown. Flip and cook for 1 more minute, until the bubbles are deeply golden brown, as well. Repeat with remaining dough.
  8. Before serving, mix melted butter and freshly chopped parsley together to brush onto the warm naan. Enjoy!

Hello my friend, I wanted to make your recipe for Naan today, but it didn't work out for me. The dough never came together and was very wet, even though I followed the recipe exactly. Are you sure that the amount of flour is correct on the recipe provided? Can't understand why it went wrong, but I would love to try it again. Please let me know!

Hi Debra! So sorry to hear of your troubles!! I've not had any problems with this recipe; however, the climate and elevation you live in can make a huge difference when baking. I would suggest adding more flour as needed next time! Maybe start at 2 tablespoons and work your way up until a smooth and pliable dough. Let me know if that helps next time!
