Bake naan bread without yeast - basic recipe for Indian flatbread from the pan

Naan bread is a traditional flatbread popular in many countries in South Asia, particularly in Indian cuisine. It is often served with dishes such as curries or as a side dish to various meals. Naan bread is known for its soft, airy texture.

The main ingredients of naan bread are usually flour, water or milk, yeast or baking powder, salt and often yogurt or milk. The dough is kneaded and rolled out flat before being baked in a tandoor, a traditional Indian clay oven, or in a hot pan.

Naan bread – a simple recipe without yeast

With the simple naan recipe you can quickly make a delicious, fluffy flatbread yourself without yeast. Perfect as a starter with a classic garlic dip or as a side dish to curry. I personally love naan bread as it is perfect for dipping hummus and as a complement to oriental dishes. Tip: Naan bread can also be baked wonderfully on the grill in summer.

The following ingredients are required:

  • 300 g flour
  • 125 ml milk, plant milk or water (warm)
  • 75 g natural yoghurt or soy yoghurt or soy curd
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • good olive oil

It is prepared as follows:

  • In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and baking powder.

  • Add yogurt and 2 tablespoons of good olive oil and mix.

  • Knead the naan dough on a lightly floured surface until it is smooth. If necessary, add more flour until the dough no longer sticks.

  • Cover the naan dough with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest in a warm place for about 1 hour until it has risen slightly.

  • Divide the naan dough into 6-8 equal pieces and form into balls.

  • Roll out each ball on a floured surface into a thin flat cake.

  • In a pan over medium heat, bake the flatbreads on both sides for approx. 1-2 minutes (depending on the heat) per side until the naan puffs up and turns golden brown.

  • Always serve naan warm with your favorite dips, curry dishes or simply as a side dish.

  • Tip: If you want garlic naan, simply sprinkle finely chopped fresh garlic on top.

In short – after a good 15 minutes you have conjured up delicious Indian naan bread on the table.
