Easy Naan Recipe

Heres an easy naan recipe I posted to Instagram the other day. I am very used to making naans with a yeast dough recipe, this was something a bit different and I must say I loved it. These yield the softest and lightest naan, which goes down a treat with a side of chicken or kebabs. You can also cook up a batch to use as wraps. The recipe freezes beautifully. Cook, cool and freeze. Defrost before eating and warm on a hot pan or tawa.

Naan Recipe

2 cups flour

1 heaped tablespoon of ghee

1 generous tsp salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/2 cups of scalding milk

Good quality butter


Sift the flour, add the baking powder and salt.

Rub the ghee into the flour mixture until its nicely incorporated.

Using a spatula slowly add the milk and bind into a soft dough.

Allow the dough to rest.

Roll into discs.

Cook on a hot frying pan/tawa flipping continuously until golden brown flecks form.

Transfer to a plate and slather generously with butter.

Stack naans on top of each other and serve.
