Total Time 27 mins
Servings 6 medium-large naan


  • 3/4 teaspoon dried yeast
  • 3 teaspoon sugar super fine
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour plus more for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 Tablespoon melted butter plus more for brushing
  • 4 Tablespoon yogurt
  • vegatable oil
  • toppings and fillings


  • Mix yeast and half of the sugar with 4 Tablespoons of the water. Let rest 10 minutes, until frothy.
  • Stir together the remaining dry ingredients, including the remaining sugar. Make a well in the middle and add all of the liquid except the oil. Bring the dough together using a fork. Take it out of the bowl and knead for six to seven minutes. Oil the outside of the dough, place in a large bowl, cover and place in a warm place for 2-3 hours.
  • Heat broiler. Place a baking sheet or broiler rack on the upper shelf. Punch down the dough. Flour a board or the counter and divide the dough into six. It should be very soft. Using a little flour, roll or pat each piece into naans that are really thing, less than 182 inch thick. Scatter with any toppings. Brush with butter.
  • Place on hot baking sheet or broiler rack and broil until the surface has some lovely golden spots, about 3-4 minutes. Flip and broil for another 2 minutes until the other side has also cooked through. Brush the top with a bit more butter and serve.
  • Toppings: nigella, cumin, poppy or sesame seeds, cilantro, mint, lightly cooked onions, chilies, grated cheese or a combo.
