A pretty interesting recipe for a bread called Naan, very popular in Asia, it’s soft, chewy and has a delicious buttery taste.

Preparation Time: 30 mins

Cook: 20 mins

Additional: 1 hr 40 mins

Servings: 14


  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 ½ cups bread flour
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic (Optional)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted


Step 1.
Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl. Let stand for about 10 minutes, until frothy.

Step 2.
Meanwhile, generously oil a large bowl.

Step 3.
Stir sugar, milk, egg, and salt into the yeast mixture. Mix in enough flour to make a soft dough.

Step 4.
Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth, 6 to 8 minutes.

Step 5.
Place dough in the prepared oil, cover with a damp cloth, and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Step 6.
Punch down dough on a lightly floured surface, and knead in garlic. Pinch off small handfuls of dough about the size of a golf ball; you should have about 14. Roll each piece into a ball and place on a tray. Cover with a towel, and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.

Step 7.
Meanwhile, preheat a large grill pan over high heat.

Step 8.
Roll each piece of dough into a thin circle.

Step 9.
Brush some melted butter on the preheated grill pan. Place a few pieces of dough in the pan (as many as you can fit) and cook until puffy and lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Brush butter onto the uncooked sides, flip, and cook until browned, 2 to 4 more minutes. Remove from the grill and repeat to cook the remaining naan.
