I loved the naan bread recipe I previously posted but I think I am even more in love with this new recipe I have created.  So I thought it’s time for an update. It’s also very simple to make but I think it’s much softer and lighter. For this Easy No Yeast Naan Bread recipe I have not used Greek yogurt.

This Easy No Yeast Naan Bread makes the lightest, fluffiest naan bread and the bonus is you can have naan bread anytime you wish, because it’s that simple to make. You can use this recipe as a base for my Lamb Curry Pizza too.

My husband hates the taste or smell of yeast in his bread or Naan Bread should I say. He refuses to eat the ones I make with yeast but this one he simply loves. What I love about it the most is that it has a soft, pillowy  texture.

Naan Bread has become so popular that I think everyone has their own favourite recipe. Of course, it’s always a winner when served with an authentic Indian curry. You can make flatbread, naan bread and pizza with this dough. It’s my favourite recipe for now and everyone thinks I’ve put loads of effort into making them.

I used lukewarm milk for this recipe and I did mention that I used 1 cup of milk. However, if you feel the dough is too sticky please add more flour to make a soft, pliable dough.

Easy no yeast naan bread. Soft and fluffy and a perfect accompaniment to Indian curries
