100% Whole Wheat 5 Minute Naan

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 :D  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.

This is awesome! I’ve been wanting to try out a skillet/pan bread for awhile now. Naan sounds like a good place to start. And it sure looks authentic even if it’s really not ;)

I have never made naan before but sure I love some Indian food to go with it. Now that you have this 5 minute version maybe I will venture and make it one day :-)

Bless your heart, Heidi, for this recipe. Can’t tell you how timely it is. Love the look of this flat bread. I’ll be testing it with the great chickpea curry. Hope you and the family are all great. Are you excited about the summer that’s approaching. Is your garden already the paradise that it always is in summer?

I’ve never tried making naan bread before as the thought has always been quite daunting, but this recipe seems simple and also really quite healthy so I’m going to brave it and have a go!

Hi Heidi!

I made this the other night to go with a quick curry and Oh my word- so good and easy! I made a few adjustments: used spelt vs whole wheat, soy yogurt vs dairy and used coconut oil for the pan- I have made naan before and the method was to cover the naan for a minute or 2 to help cook/steam the naan which works really well – I loved your recipe, THANK YOU so much for sharing, this will become my go to Naan Recipe moving forward :)
