Baked Flatbread with Garlic (Lahsooni Naan)

Baked Flatbread with Garlic (Lahsooni Naan)

Baked Flatbread with Garlic (Lahsooni Naan) recipe















4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
¼ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup water
1 tablespoon liquid egg substitute
1 cup soy milk
or lowfat milk
2 tablespoons canola oil
¼ cup olive oil
or melted ghee
2 garlic cloves


Combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Set aside. Whisk water and egg replacer. Mix egg replacer, soy milk and canola oil in a large bowl.

Add flour mixture to soymilk mixture and stir until dough forms a ball. Knead briefly, place in a greased bowl and cover with a damp towel. Let dough rest in a warm, draft-free area for 2½ to 3 hours.

Preheat oven to 400℉ (200℃). Lightly oil baking sheets. Sauté garlic in olive oil for 2 minutes. Set aside.

Lightly coat hands with vegetable oil and knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth, about 3 minutes. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces and roll each into a ball. Flatten each ball with hands, roll into an oval about 3/8" thick and stretch ends to form a teardrop shape (wide at base and tapering to a point on top).

Place on baking sheets and brush with garlic oil. Bake on middle rack for 6 to 8 minutes.


After baking, place under broiler to brown.

Very good! We made these flatbread yesterday, and they came out great. Because this recipe uses baking soda, the dough didn't rise too much and the bread came out flatter than the yeast bread; we made these flatbread on the grill, which worked wonderfully well. We loved both of the texture and flavor. A delicious paring with any Indian dish.

The recipe calls for 2 tspns baking Soda and 1 tspn of cream of tartar. Normal mix for Baking Powder is 1 of Baking Soda and 2 of cream of tartar. Is this a typo?

Just checked a few same Indian recipes, 2 teaspoons baking soda and 1 teaspoon cream of tartar are right, in this recipe the ratio of baking soda and cream of tartar is 2:1, enjoy!
