What You'll Need

  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  1. Sift the flour and add the dry ingredients and mix. Add the oil and milk, knead for 10 minutes. add more milk to the dough if you feel its dry. Cover and let the dough sit in a warm place in your kitchen for one hour. Turn the broiler on High and place a metal cookie sheet tray coated with oil under the broiler {not too close to the burners}
  2. Once the dough is rested for one hour, cut it up in 6-8 equal parts. Roll out the dough into Naan shapes of round or ovals. Pierce marks with a knife or fork, all over the Naan.
  3. # Melt the butter for 30 seconds in the microwave and Brush it over the Naan. Sprinkle some sesame seeds. I used white & black sesame seeds {optional. Bake under the broiler only on one side for 2 minutes or so {until light golden brown} Serve Hot! Enjoy!

Hi I'm Sara and I love the art of food & travel. I have a blog called One Tribe Gourmet, where I share my passion for global cuisine and my travel adventures around the world. I have always felt that food is the most common denominator that crosses all boundaries and brings people together. The ritual of “Breaking Bread” in every culture is a special bonding experience. Personally I love to experience different cultures through there cuisines! My goal here is to encourage an individual who is interested in learning different global cuisine yet is a bit intimidated by it. I am here to help you, all you have to do is open your heart!!!

I’m a rookie bread maker, but my people love naan. I discovered this recipe on our beach trip. It’s simple and pretty fast, and delicious. We all love it and it’s made homemade naan a reality. Thank you!

I'm confused with this recipe. How is it supposed to rise without yeast?
