total time


1/4 cup milk

1/4 cup yogurt

1 cup all purpose flour

1/4 tsp baking powder (+ an extra 1/8 tsp)

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp sugar

1/8 tsp salt

1 tbsp butter (melted, to serve)

1 tbsp fresh cilantro (chopped, to serve)


In a small bowl, whisk together the milk and yogurt. Set aside.

Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl or on a clean work surface. Make a well and slowly add in the milk-yogurt mix bit by bit, combining with the flour. Knead into a soft dough. Gather into ball and cover for 1 hour.

Lightly dust your work surface with flour. Divide the dough into 4-6 equal pieces and use a rolling pin to flatten and stretch out.

Heat up a heavy bottomed or cast iron skillet (with a lid, preferably a glass lid) over high heat. Brush one side of the naan with water and place in the skillet, water side down.

Cover the pan and cook for 30 seconds, then check it to see if has started to bubble and rise. If it has, use a pair of tongs and take it off the pan and cook the uncooked side over direct flames until it starts to char. Alternatively, flip and cook the pan until it starts to brown.

When the naan is browned on both sides, brush with a bit of melted butter and sprinkle on chopped cilantro. Repeat with the remaining dough. Enjoy warm.
