Sonia’s Flat Naan Bread


  • 1 tbsp Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 cup Warm Water 105-115 Degrees
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 3 1/2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 large Egg Beaten
  • 3 tbsp Milk
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 4-4 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 large Clove of fresh Garlic Minced or 1 Teaspoon Garlic Paste or 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • Oil for Frying
  • Butter for Spreading


  1. In a small bowl mix the yeast, water, and 1 teaspoon of sugar together. Let stand for 10 minutes. Stir together the 3 1/2 Tablespoons of sugar, egg, milk, salt, and baking soda. Stir in the yeast mixture and the flour to make soft dough.
  2. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 6-8 minutes or until smooth. Place the dough in a large bowl coated with oil. Cover it with a damp dishtowel. Set dough aside to rise until double, about 1 hour. Punch down and knead in the fresh garlic if using.
  3. Pinch off dough about the size of a tennis ball. Roll into a ball, spray a baking sheet with cooking oil and place the balls on it. Let rise until double, about 30 minutes.
  4. Turn the over to 350 degrees. Roll out each piece of dough as thin as you can get it. (You won’t need any flour to roll the dough out on) – you can use very little flour if you really need to. I have a pizza stone I leave inside the oven. You can also use a grill or large fry pan.
  5. Place dough in the oven and bake 2 minutes – turn and cook the other sides. You can brush oil or butter on the hot bread with a rubber brush. Continue the process until all the dough is cooked. Serve warm with butter.
