Yeast Free Soft Chewy Naan

Quick and easy – this naan recipe only takes about 5 minutes to put together and about another 10 to cook. My entire family goes NUTS when they hear that mama’s making naan.and just a few minutes to cups total cooking time about 15 minutes. We served it most recently with Coconut Curry Oxtail, but it’s even delicious just as a snack on its own.


  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour + more for dusting
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 – 2 tbsp melted butter or olive oil
  • 1/2 sour cream (we use 5% fat sour cream)
  • 1/4 cup milk (we use whole milk)


  1. In a separate bowl or measuring cup, mix the sour cream and milk together until well combined, set aside
  2. Combine 1 cup flour, salt and baking powder, mix well
  3. Add in sour cream & milk mixture
  4. Mix together until combined and forms a ball. Dough should be soft and delicate. If the dough is sticking too much, add more flour. Add just a little at a time enough to bring the dough together.
  5. Rest the dough for 5 minutes
  6. Dust your surface with flour and move the dough from the bowl to the dusted surface.
  7. Divide your dough into 8 small naans or 6 slightly larger ones.
  8. You can now decide to roll out the dough with a floured rolling pin or I just shape it with my hands and fingers, gently pressing the dough out to the desired shape and size
  9. Place the individual naans on a hot oil-free skillet or cast iron pan. Cook until the one side is caramelized to your taste, flip and repeat on the other side.
  10. While the 2nd side is cooking, brush with melted butter or olive oil for extra flavour and visual appeal.
  11. Brush second side with butter/oil once taken off the skillet.

Serve warm.

Options: Use garlic butter or paprika butter instead of regular butter. Can also sprinkle toasted sesame seeds, garlic powder or onion powder onto your naans.

If not eating on the same day, reheat before serving.

Bon Appetit!
