This Guajarati Naan Bread is so simple to make and is delicious. You can make this bread to enjoy as a side to any meal. We are in love with this recipe. 


  1. Mix the yeast and sugar with 125ml lukewarm water. Set aside for 5 minutes, or until frothy and starting to bubble.

  2. Mix the flour with the salt and the Guajarati addition in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the yeast mixture, yogurt and 1 tbsp of the butter. Quickly mix with a fork to make a soft dough, adding a splash more water if necessary.

  3. Knead the dough for 8 minutes either by machine with a dough hook or on a lightly floured work surface. When your dough feels smooth and silky, put it into a lightly oiled bowl. 

  4. Cover the bowl with oiled cling film or a damp tea cloth and leave to rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes - 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.

  5. Once risen, knock back the dough with your fist and knead briefly, then cut into 6 pieces. Roll each piece out into an oval measuring roughly 5mm in thickness.

  6. In a nonstick frying pan set over a high heat, cook each naan for 6 mins, turning halfway, until cooked through and browned in places. Brush with the remaining butter and sprinkle with the nigella seeds. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm while you cook the remaining naans.

  7. Enjoy with a curry and chutney.
