Mix yeast, salt, and warm water, then add oil and yogurt. Gradually incorporate flour to form a dough, knead, and let it rest for an hour.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 1 tsp yeast
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour


  • In a bowl, whisk together yeast, salt, and warm water until the yeast dissolves completely.
  • Add oil and yogurt to the yeast mixture, stirring until well combined.
  • Gradually add the flour, mixing until a dough forms. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic.
  • Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a clean towel, and let it rest for 1 hour, allowing it to double in size.
  • After the dough has rested, divide it into 10 equal portions. Roll out each portion into a naan shape, ensuring it’s neither too thick nor too thin.
  • Heat a pan over medium heat. Once hot, place a naan on the pan and lightly wet one side with water.
  • Allow bubbles to form on the surface of the naan, then carefully flip it over and cook for a few more seconds until lightly browned.
  • Remove the naan from the pan and brush it with infused garlic olive oil while still hot.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining dough to make more naan.


– Experiment with different toppings such as chopped herbs, cheese, or spices to customize your naan.
– For a crispy crust, cook the naan directly on a preheated pizza stone or grill.
– Leftover naan can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days or frozen for longer shelf life. Reheat before serving for the best taste and texture.
