Homemade Naan (no yeast version)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup white whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup yogurt
  • ¼ cup water or more as needed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons melted butter
  1. Preheat grill (or large griddle).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flours, baking soda, sugar, and salt. Stir to combine.
  3. In a glass measuring cup combine water, olive oil, and yogurt.
  4. Add the yogurt mixture to the flour mixture a little at a time, kneading the dough between additions. If the dough is too dry add more water as needed.
  5. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes, until you have soft dough. Cover with plastic wrap or a damp, lint free towel. Set aside in a warm, draft free area in the kitchen for 25-30 minutes.
  6. After the first rise, divide the dough into four balls and allow to rise another 5-10 minutes before shaping.
  7. Lightly sprinkle a counter with flour and using your hands press each dough ball into a flat, oblong shape about 1/8” – ¼” thickness.
  8. Lay each piece of dough directly on the grate of the preheated grill (or on a nonstick griddle). Cook without moving until bottom is golden brown and beginning to char. Using a long handled spatula turn over. Cook second side until golden and beginning to char.
  9. Remove from grill and brush with melted butter. Cover with a lint free towel to keep fresh and warm until ready to serve.
