Soft, chewy with a nice buttery taste, this naan bread is so flavorful! It's a natural to serve with East Indian dishes but versatile enough to enjoy with other meals that have sauces on them!

How to Make Indian Naan Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. In a bowl of a stand mixer, combine yeast, honey and water; stir to dissolve and let sit until frothy, about 15 minutes. Add oil, yogurt and beaten egg; whisk to combine.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together 2 cups flour and salt. Add dry ingredients to yeast mixture, keeping about ½ cup on the side. Process on speed 3 until dough is no longer sticking at the bottom and pulled from the sides of the bowl, adding flour, about 1 tbsp. at a time.
  3. Transfer dough on a work surface and pulling under to form a ball. Place dough in a large bowl lightly oiled and coat ball dough by rubbing around the bowl. Cover with a clean dish towel and let it rise for 1 ½ hours or until it doubles in size
  4. Punch dough, transfer onto a lightly floured work surface and separate into 8 equal pieces; pull under to form small balls, and cover for 30 minutes.
  5. Heat a griddle, panini pan or a heavy skillet over medium heat. Roll down one ball at a time into a long thin oval shape, keeping the other dough balls covered.
  6. When pan is hot, place one at a time and lightly brush the top with clarified butter; cook until golden brown and large bubbles formed on top, about 3 minutes. Flip the dough on the other side and cook until golden brown as well for about 3 minutes. Repeat with the remaining dough balls.
