Hey folks this is Lady Lynne and I just back from our summer break to Cornwall.

We had a truly amazing time and I can’t wait to bring you some of the highlights next week.

But today, as the first of two new recipes this week, I’m bringing you my really simple home made naan bread recipe.

The reason being, you’re going to need this delicious home made naan bread recipe to go with the new healthy paneer and chick pea curry recipe I’ve got for you on Thursday.

I first brought you this home made naan bread recipe way back when I started this blog combined in the lamb rogan josh and home made naan breads recipe.

This is such a good recipe not to have a single post of it’s own and an easy step by step guide. I make it every Sunday when we enjoy a home made curry!

Home Made Naan Bread Step By Step

Home Made Naan Bread Ingredients

First, start by assembling all of the home made naan bread ingredients.

Mixing the Home Made Naan Bread Ingredients To a Dough

Then, in a medium sized bowl combine the two flours, salt, yeast and no fat yogurt / water mixture together.

You can do the whole mixing process by hand, or with a stand mixer.

Forming a dough ball

Mix the ingredients together to form a dough ball.

Resting the home made naan bread dough.

Once combined, place the dough ball on a floured surface and knead briefly. 1 minute here will do.

Then re-shape into a dough ball, coat in a light dusting of plain flour, place in a clean bowl and cover with clingfilm to rest for one hour.

Cut the home made naan bread dough up into 6 pieces.

After an hour, cut the home made naan bread dough up into 6 pieces and roll into 6 equal sized balls.

Turn on a medium to high heat under a suitable non-stick frying pan / Indian flat pan Tawa / Tava.

Roll out the home made naan bread dough to a circle shape.

Roll out the home made naan bread dough to a circle shape, the same size as the bottom of your non-stick frying pan / Indian flat pan Tawa / Tava.

Place the rolled out home made naan bread dough onto the cooking surface and cook each side.

Place the home made naan bread dough directly onto your non-stick frying pan / Indian flat pan Tawa / Tava  and without any oil, cook on each side until puffed up and lightly browned.

Repeat steps above until all the naan breads are ready. Lay each naan bread on top of each other, use a piece of kitchen towel to prevent them from sticking together.

Then just quickly re-heat your curry and serve!

  1. Naan bread is one of my favorites! Took me a few times to nail down my gf/vegan recipe, but I did get it to work!

      That sounds exactly like me with this naan bread recipe Rebecca.

      Once I’d perfected it, no other naan bread ever comes near it!

      Thanks Shashi! Looking forward to sharing the Cornwall pictures with you!

      You will love this naan bread recipe. As a fellow curry and lover of spicy foods, I guarantee this is the perfect healthy accompaniment! 🙂

  3. OMG NAAN PIZZAAAA PAARRRRTTTYYYYYY

    How classy am I that I have a stand mixer but no rolling pin…

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      No problems there Susie, I find I get better results with this recipe if I use my stand mixer so you’ve got a start there.

      And no problems with not having a rolling pin either, I’m sure you’ve got a bottle of wine you could use to roll out the dough? 😉

  4. I remember when I was younger, my dad would order Indian Foods on Friday nights and before he could get into his take out order, I would always steal his NAAN! BAH HA HA AH AH! So friggin’ good!

      Ha ha! I love that. That’s just what Lynne would do too!

      In fact if I’m not careful she’s often trying to steal my share of the naan if my back is turned. 😉
