A traditional naan recipe adapted for the Bread Machine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In the mixing bowl of your bread machine, combine warm milk (about 80F) with yeast, butter and half of the sugar- set aside for 5 minutes.
  2. On a piece of waxed paper sift together flour, salt and baking powder.
  3. Add to bread machine bowl.
  4. Add olive oil, second half of sugar, yogurt and egg.
  5. Set the bread machine to the dough setting and let it run through the cycle.
  6. When the bread machine has almost finished the dough cycle, pre-heat your oven to 500 degrees F.
  7. If you have a baking stone, place it in the top rack of the oven to preheat as well.
  8. Take dough out and separate it into six equal sections.
  9. Using a rolling pin or your hands, flatten dough out to ovals about 1/3 inch thick.
  10. When oven has pre-heated, place rounds on pre-heated stone or heavy baking sheet.
  11. Bake on top shelf of the oven for 90 seconds; the naan should start to puff.
  12. Switch the oven from bake to broil for an additional minute or until the top starts to brown.
  13. When brown on top, remove from oven and cover with a towel while you finish baking the remaining loaves.
  14. You can brush the naan with butter before serving if desired.

I had to register here at just so I could rate this recipe!! I've looked and looked for a great tasting, easy recipe to make Indian bread and I have finally found it. They came out of oven fluffy and soft. My family loved them with the vegetable curry I made and were talking about how they can be used for sandwiches as well. Will definitely be making these over and over again!! (oops! I forgot to mention that I weighed my flour using 11 oz. of white unbleached and 5 oz of whole wheat to make it healthier).

I made this on my BBQ grill and it was great. I used the recommended ingredients but did the prep a little different. Since my bread machine has a warming cycle, I layered all the wet ingredients first then the dry ingredients with the yeast on the very top. Once it was done I made the ovals as directed and here is the twist. I put an extra heavy cookie sheet on my BBQ grill heated it up to 500 degrees and cooked the bread on the cookie sheet (with the cover closed). I flipped it over for a few seconds at the end to brown the top. It tasted exactly like the real thing. Thanks for the recipe.

Good recipe, naan are pretty versatile, I used leftovers as crusts for my kids to make their own pizzas. They store well in a ziploc in the fridge. I used about 3 1/2 - 4 cups flour, just started with 3 and added more after a few minutes in the machine. I did brush a few with melted butter after baking and sprinkled with garlic salt.
