Naan For Breadmaker


A simple recipe to make the Indian flat bread using a bread machine.













Trans-fat Free


½ tablespoon yeast, active dry
3 cups all-purpose flour
½ tablespoon sugar
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
¾ cups yogurt, plain
½ cup water
4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons onions


A flat bread from India. Make sure your oven is well preheated.

Use dough cycle on machine. Remove dough from machine and divide into 12 parts.

Preheat oven to 500. Roll each part into a small circle (about 8 inches diameter) and place on greased pizza or other baking pan.

Brush top of each one with melted butter and press finely chopped onion into dough. Bake 10 to 15 minutes until puffy and brown.

Note: While traditional "Nan" has onions, try substituting 1 to 2 teaspoons lemon or orange peel, anise or fennel seeds. Just sprinkle on top of melted butter.

What stuff goes into the bread machine to make the dough?

These turned out great! Instead of 10-12 minutes bake time, we found about 9 and 1/2 minutes to be our sweet spot. They’re just starting to brown with a soft interior. As well we added minced garlic and salt and pepper at the same time as putting the onion on. The dough itself would work well for flatbread or pizza!

Or make kema and add that into the dough mixture before baking.

Can you freeze the dough? Or refrigerate the dough to have freshly baked naan as needed?

Worst recipe ever… Does not say which ingredients go in the bread machine.

Instructions are ambiguous about several things. It says 6 servings but make 12 rounds. Then, what to put in bread machine (the 2 T butter?), and what to save for later (the 4 T butter?)? I made 12, which was apparently too small - they burned at 10 minutes. 6 minutes at 450 was ok for that size, they didn't turn out quite like authentic na'an.

Best bread maker recipe, leave the onion off pan fry with no butter or oil in cast iron for around 30 seconds a side and brush one side with garlic butter at the end

The recipe is confusing. But I did these modifications and it turned out pretty good.
Except onion n 3tbsp butter, added everything to the breadmaker. Dough setting.
Made 8 servings. Brushed w remaining butter-3tb n onion. I also added garlic.
Baked for 10mins. 450 deg. Broiled for 30secs.

This recipe isn't worded well but it's a good general naan recipe.
Save the 4T butter and onions for the end.
To your bread machine, add all the wet ingredients first (including the 2T butter and yogurt).
Mix dry ingredients (EXCEPT FOR THE YEAST) in a bowl and slowly add on top of the wet ingredients.
Add yeast on top of the dry ingredients.
Close the lid and start the dough cycle.

Follow the rest of the recipe from there.
I prefer pan frying my naan with sesame oil, no onions.
