This easy homemade healthy naan bread is quick to make and perfectly soft and chewy! Serve this Indian skillet flatbread with curry or as a quick pizza crust. Homemade naan is better than any store-bought flatbread! This soft pliable bread is irresistible with dips, curries, soups and more! The dough easily freezes so fresh naan can be enjoyed anytime!
Although vegan naan is mostly enjoyed at restaurants or prepackaged from the store, it can easily be made at home. And trust me, fresh homemade naan is definitely better!
Plus it’s freezable! So there is no fuss if you're making it for 1 or a whole family. Simply pop the leftovers in the freezer until you're ready to enjoy more naan.
INGREDIENTS 3 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided 1 cup of warm water 2 teaspoons sugar, or honey 1 and 1/4 teaspoon active dry yeast, or 1 packet 1 Tablespoon olive oil 1 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt 2 teaspoons garlic powder Optional mix-in: a handful of fresh chopped parsley or 1 Tablespoon dried parsley
INSTRUCTIONS In a large bowl mix together the warm water, sugar, and yeast. Set aside for 5-10 minutes and allow the yeast to activate and become "foamy". Once the yeast is activated mix in the salt, garlic, and parsley if using. Mix in 2 and 1/2 cups of flour until well combined.
Using the last cup of flour dust your work area. Turn the dough out onto the floured surface and knead for 2-3 minutes. Dust the dough and your hands with more flour as needed. Knead until the dough is slightly sticky but smooth and holds a ball shape. Tip: I never use the entire last cup.
Cover and let the dough rise until doubled in size, about 45 minutes to an hour. Turn the risen dough out onto a floured surface and divide into 8 equal portions. Roll a portion of dough into an oval about 1/4-inch thick. Place the dough in a hot dry (a few drops of added oil) skillet and cook until bubbles begin to form on top. Flip and cook on the other side until the bubbles are browned/blackened (depending on your preference). Repeat until all the dough is cooked.
Optional: Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with fresh parsley and coarse sea salt. Serve Immediately.
