If you are looking for quick & easy naan recipe without using any yeast, then you have reached the right place. This recipe for naan bread uses yogurt along with flour and gives slightly chewy and the right amount of tangy naans for your curries.

I love to eat naans with spicy and rich curries. For me, a meal can never be complete without some Indian naans in it. And, often I have cringed at the very thought of making naans at home, thinking about all the time it would take for proofing the dough.

How to make various kinds of Naan Breads

But this no-yeast instant naan recipe is easy and needs pantry-basic ingredients. No need to keep this for proofing because you can make your naans almost immediately.

This is a basic naan recipe which you can further modify to get various kinds of naan breads. Mix some finely chopped coriander leaves and mint leaves for Herb Naan. Or, mix some chopped Garlic in the dough to make some Garlic Naan.

You can make a filling of boiled and mashed potatoes and stuff it in the naan to make Stuffed Naans. Brush some butter once it is off the griddle and serve it with chilled Yogurt and Mint-Coriander Chutney.

How to use this easy recipe for Naan in different dishes?

This naan recipe with yogurt is a relatively easier and delicious way to make various other dishes. I use this naan recipe as a base for making Flour Tortillas and putting together Indian style Chicken Tikka Tacos. All you have to do is slice up some leftover Chicken Tikka (or, you can make some fresh, exclusively for Chicken Tikka Naan Tacos) and make your own tacos.

You can also use this no-yeast naan dough for making base for pizza as well. Simply flatten a dough ball on the pizza pan and top it with you favorite toppings before baking it in a pre-heated oven.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 4 tbsp Semolina or Sooji
  • 2 tbsp Sunflower Oil
  • 2 tbsp Yogurt
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • ½ cup Water Approximately
Instructions
  1. Take a mixing bowl and mix together the dry ingredients. Now, add the oil and rub it evenly through the dry ingrdients.

  2. Then add the Yogurt and again mix it. It should start forming a loose dough. Knead it by adding little water at a time. When you see that the dough has come together, means its dry yet binds, add a little more water (around a tablespoon). This would make it sticky and that's what we are looking for.

  3. Take a teaspoon of oil and rub it on the dough. Cover it with a kitchen owel while you prepare to heat your skillet.

  4. Take a dough ball of golf ball size and roll it between your palms. Now, pat it into a circular disc on your kitchen counter or rolling board

  5. Once the skillet is really hot, take the naan and apply some water on one side. Then place that side on the skillet.

  6. In a couple of minutes you will see bubbles appearing on the top. Upturn the skillet on the flame to roast the top of the naan. Once it gets a nice brown char to it, scrape the naan from the skillet.

  7. Apply melted butter on top and serve.

  1. […] On the first night, we had it with Chapattis/Rotis. After keeping it for a day and allowing it to soak in its beauty, we had it with simple par-boiled Rice and Salad. This can be great party food and can be served with Lachha Paranthas or Naans. […]
