Naan bread is an Indian flatbread typically made in a clay oven. Bake up a few slices of naan bread to enjoy alongside dal, curries, and other stews.

  • Bread Machine Program: Dough (#6)
  • Delay Start Time Available: Yes
  • Color Option: No
  • Weight Option: No


  • 1 cup Water, warm

  • 2 Tbsp Honey

  • 2 ¼ tsp Active Dry Yeast

  • 3 ½ cups All Purpose Flour

  • ¼ cup Yogurt, plain

  • 2 tsp Sea Salt

  • ½ tsp Baking powder

  • 1 Egg


  1. Open the top cover of the bread machine and lift the handle of the bread pan vertically, pulling upward to remove the pan from the machine. Place the bread pan on your work surface. Make sure the pan is clean and both kneading paddles are in place.

  2. Add all the ingredients to the bread pan in the order listed.

  3. Put the bread pan back in the bread machine, pressing it down so that it clicks into place. Close the lid of the bread machine.

  4. Plug the bread machine into an outlet and press the power button to turn the machine on.

  5. Use the menu button to select program #6 for the dough cycle.

  6. Press the start button to begin the dough making cycle. Check the dough as it is mixing. It will be quite wet but should form a loose ball as the bread machine mixed the ingredients together. If it looks too wet, add ¼ cup more flour to the bread pan.

  7. Once the dough is done, the countdown timer on the front of the machine will read 0:00 and the machine will beep, indicating your dough is done. Open the machine at this time and use a pot holder to lift the pan out of the machine.

  8. Gently lift the dough out of the machine and place it on a floured work surface.

  9. Cut the dough into 8 equally sized portions. Use a rolling pin to roll each portion into an oval, about ¼ of an inch thick.

  10. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium high heat. Add one dough oval to the pan and cook for one minute, flip and cook for another minute.

  11. Remove the naan from the pan, sprinkle with a little salt then continue to cook the remaining dough. Enjoy while warm.
