So there I am searching for that easy, airy, stretchy naan bread that I have in my favorite Indian restaurant. But alas, still haven’t hit the jackpot. This recipe was really delicious, but I am looking for the texture mentioned above! It was yummy for sure. Would go great with stews and could make great pita bread sandwiches. But, still on the search for something up a notch!!

Here’s all you do:

Naan in the bread machine


  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˚.
  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. (I got 8)
  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.
