Easy Naan Bread Recipe – Budget Friendly Naan.
I saw a comment on one of the social media platforms – could have been Twitter; maybe Facebook – about recipes on blog.
Basically the commenter complained about finding a great recipe idea through a Google search, only to discover that they had to pour through paragraph after paragraph about the blogger’s family … or weather … or how their day was going … or blah blah blah … before actually getting to the actual recipe.
Lol. Guilty as charged.
And in honor of that commenters comment, I’m going to keep the blah blah’s to a bare minimum. Mostly because I’m not feeling all that blah blah blah at the moment.
I will just say that today I’m joining forces with some amazing blogging friends to share budget friendly recipes. All organized by my friend Marty at A Stroll Thru Life.
Oh, and I can’t promise that my blogging friends won’t serve up a healthy portion of blah blah blahs before you get to their recipes. 😉
Now on to this easy Naan Bread Recipe …
Easy Naan Bread Recipe
- 1/4 oz active dry yeast
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Combine warm water, sugar and yeast in a small bowl. Mix together well. Yeast will be activate when it gets foamy (about 10 minutes).
- Add flour to a bowl. (You can do this on a flat surface too; I chose a bowl to make it less messy). Make a well in the middle of the flour. Add yeast, yogurt, oil and salt. Mix together and knead until smooth.
- Form dough into a ball and place in bottom of the bowl. Cover with a towel and leave in warm area to rise (about 1-2 hours).
- Once risen, divide into 8 equal portions (I just cut in half, halfed those two halves, and halved those four halves. Roll into balls.
- On a very (very) lightly floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll each ball into a flat circle.
- Cook each Naan dough in a lightly oiled skillet on high heat. (I added some additional oil between each one to prevent sticking). When the dough puffs up (and is browned, flip over and cook on the other side. Repeat until all 8 are cooked.
- You can serve immediately while warm, or store in a Ziploc bag once cooled down. You can reheat in microwave, or eat at room temperature. Great for dipping in hummus or making a wrap.
My favorite way to eat Naan is with my Best Hummus Recipe. Ever.

Oooohhh… I love Naan bread but I’ve never thought to try to make it myself! Thanks for the recipe!
Okay it’s not “naan bread” it’s just “naan” which is hindi for bread. So you’re just saying bread bread. Also I think this is actually pita because naan isnt supposed to inflate, it’s supposed to bubble. Im sure this tastes great but may want to consider updating the name for accuracy.
