Basic Pakistani wheat bread. Very similar to naan (basic Indian bread). Very easy and goes nicely with curry.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir the butter into the warm water until it melts (this should take about 1 minute at the most).
  2. Stir the yeast and salt in the water/butter mixture until dissolves; then allow the yeast to bloom (10 minutes).
  3. Stir in honey.
  4. Gradually work in enough flour to make a soft, workable dough.
  5. Turn out on a floured board and knead until elastic and smooth.
  6. Let rise until doubled in bulk (30 minutes).
  7. Preheat oven to 500°F.
  8. Turn out on a floured board and knead briefly.
  9. Form into 12 balls.
  10. Roll each ball out to 1/4-inch thick, and let rise for 15 minutes.
  11. Turn over onto a greased baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes (watch closely so they don't brown too much).

This was a snap to make and my family loved it. I used AP flour because it's all i had on hand and it turned out ok. going to have to try it with the right flour.

I do not know if mine look correct, but they sure did taste great! Just the right amount of salt, too. I ran out of whole wheat so used about 3/4 cup of all purpose white flour and seemed to be fine. This pulled together fast-timing is right on. Thanks littleturtle for sharing a wonderful bread. Made for All New Zaar Cookbook tag.
