Shop bought naan bread will never satisfy again once you have tried my home made naan bread, and brushed with the melted parsley butter – just delicious!
Servings 6 large naans
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • cups all purpose flour (I use king arthur)
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 large room temperature egg
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • ¼ cup plain yoghurt
  • 1 cup warm water at 110 degrees

For the topping:

  • Melted butter
  • Chopped fresh parsley


  • Start by activating the yeast so place the warm water and honey into the bowl of an electric stand mixer , give a stir and sprinkle over the yeast and stir again. Leave to stand for between 5-10 minutes until it becomes creamy and foamy.
  • Now add in the flour, egg, yoghurt, salt and baking powder and using the dough attachment mix on a low speed for a couple of minutes until sticky but smooth.

  • Grease a mixing bowl and shape the dough into a ball and place into the greased bowl.
  • Cover and place somewhere warm to rise for around an hour. It should have doubled in size by then.

  • Heat a non stick pan over a medium to high heat ( i like to add a little butter or olive oil for extra colour and flavour but you can cook them in a dry pan)
  • Add one of the rolled out doughs and cook until bubbling up and golden then flip to cook the other side for around 45 seconds to one minute.
