Once you make this easy naan bread recipe using our Khorasan Wheat, you will never want to buy pre-made naan flatbread again. Just mix the four ingredients and knead them for a few minutes to bring it together, then roll it out and pan fry. It is a yeast free naan flatbread that’s light, fluffy and tasty!

Ingredients for Easy Naan Flatbread

Directions for Easy Naan Flatbread

  • While optional, I strongly suggest reading and implementing these Khorasan Wheat soaking and sprouting instructions and then use that flour for this recipe (it’s totally worth it; I promise!). If you decide not to use soaked and sprouted flour, your naan bread will be a bit tough, but will still be tasty.
  • Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl, using a whisk to make sure ingredients are evenly distributed.
  • Once all ingredients are mixed, add yogurt. It is best to use your hands to mix, making sure all the ingredients are mixed together well. 
  • Knead dough for a minute or so in the bowl until dough comes together in a fairly-sticky ball. If necessary, add a little more flour to make it manageable.
  • Divide dough into six equal pieces. Using a rolling pin dusted with flour, roll each piece into circles on a floured surface; circles should be about 6” diameter.
  • Heat a frying pan (without oil) until hot. Cook each flatbread for a few minutes on each side until lightly golden spots appear and it puffs up.
  • Best eaten on the same day. If preparing ahead, warm them up in the oven before serving.
