Butter Naan – No Yeast

Whenever I go to Indian restaurant and want to have north Indian food, Naan is the first thing that comes to my mind. Cant say no to Buttery naan. I wanted to make naan at home and I am posting a recipe without yeast and eggs.


Butter Naan:

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Standing time : 3 hours | Cooking time : 10 mins

Recipe Category: Entree


All purpose flour/Maida – 2 cups

Fresh thick curds – 2 tbsp

Warm Milk – 1/2 cup + 3 tbsp

Sugar – 1 tsp

Salt – as needed

Baking powder –  1/2 tsp heaped

Baking Soda – 1/2 tsp heaped

Butter  – 4 tsp, melted in room temperature


  • Mix maida, baking powder and baking soda well. Sieve the flour mix. Take the seived flour in a bowl and make a hole in the centre. Add milk, curd, salt, sugar and butter in that. Mix well with finger tips and dont knead hard. Coat the dough with little olive oil and keep aside for 2-3 hours. Better to cover the dough with a damp cloth or kitchen towel. (Can Be kept max upto 7-8 hours). Knead the dough softly and make desired size balls


  • Dust the rolling platform generously with flour and roll the dough. Apply water to one side, and place it on the skillet, with the water-applied side on the skillet


  •  Cover the skillet and cook on medium flame. After a minute, it will puff up.  At that stage, flip the naan and cook the other side. Apply butter/ghee over both sides and serve hot.

    My kids love naan–it was the gateway to Indian food for them. [Now they eat dal and korma and biryani and the grown ups never get the leftovers. Not fair.] Thanks!

    Wow, I’ve never tried to make naans at home, perhaps I will have to try it now? It looks great!

    Excellent Vidya. In Punjab, they make Kulchas this way. Naan and kulcha are very close cousins ;). Looks so soft n inviting.
