Easy Garlic Naan

This flavorful flatbread is the perfect companion to your favorite Indian dish.

Garlic naan with butter and cilantro

I have the absolute worst luck with yeast so I'm always looking for yeast-free options when making breads. This recipe uses yogurt and baking soda in place of yeast. Serve it with Chana Masala (Chickpeas Curry) or any other dish you like. Also makes a great snack.


1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp sugar

1 tsp salt

3/4 tsp baking powder

2 tsp olive oil

3/4 cup yogurt

2 garlic cloves, finely minced

butter or ghee and herbs (I like cilantro) for seasoning
