100% Whole Wheat 5 Minute Naan

I was quite excited to see how many people were interested in this naan bread!  I was going to hold off posting, but I thought I better share 100% Whole Wheat 5 Minute Naan  This naan may not exactly be authentic, as naan is a yeasted bread.  Maybe this is more like roti or chapati, I’m not entirely sure, but either way, it’s an incredibly fast bread to make that would be awesome dipped in hummus, served along some kind of curry or even used just like a tortilla.

We like these on the thinner side, but you could make them slightly thicker and nicer for dipping by not rolling them out quite as much.  Just don’t make them too thick or they wont cook in the center as these are cooked very fast.

These have a very slight tangy flavor from the yogurt which I love.  You could use a non-dairy yogurt for a vegan/dairy-free alternative or you could use water like the original recipe but you may need a little more whole wheat flour to absorb all the water.  That being said the dough is still tacky when it’s finished being kneaded.  It’s shouldn’t be too sticky that pieces rip off and stick to your fingers, but it should still be a soft dough.  Resist the urge to add too much flour.  Just sprinkle with flour frequently when rolling it to prevent it from sticking.  Be sure to dust any extra flour off before throwing it in the pan though because the loose flour will burn and wont smell too pleasant.
