  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp quick rise or instant yeast
  • 2 cups flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbs sour cream
  • 1/4 stick of butter


  1. In a small bowl, combine the water, sugar, and yeast. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, combine flour, salt, garlic powder, and sour cream in a large bowl.
  3. After the yeast has sat for 10 minutes, add to the flour mixture. Knead in the bowl until a dough is formed. You made need to add water drop by drop if the dough is very dry.
  4. Cover with cling wrap and let rise for an hour.
  5. After one hour, flour your counter and place the dough on the counter. Cut into six sections. Roll each of the 6 cuts of dough into a ball. Cover with cling wrap and let rise another 20 minutes.
  6. On a flowered surface, roll each ball of naan dough out into a oval-like shape. You want it to be about 2 cm thick. It may be easier to roll your next ball out while the one before it is cooking.
  7. Melt your butter and use a basting brush to cover one side of your naan with butter. Add to a skillet over medium heat, buttered side down. After about 2 minutes, brush melted butter over the side facing up, then flip to cook the other side for another 2 minutes. Repeat with each ball of dough, cooking one ball at a time.
