Whole Wheat Naan

Try this recipe for Whole Wheat Naan and surprise your loved ones. No maida and no tandoor required. You will never want to go to the restaurant any more. This stays soft as it is made of wheat flour unlike the restaurant naan which becomes chewy and rubbery after some time.


2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons active dried yeast
3/4 cup lukewarm water
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tbsp yoghurt
2 tbsp kasuri methi
Salt to taste


Add the yeast and sugar to the water and mix well. 

Leave aside for 15-20 minutes till it starts frothing.

Add this to the wheat flour with salt and yoghurt. 

Keep this covered in a warm place for about ½ to 2 hours till it doubles in size. 

Knock down the dough and make balls. Keep this aside for ten minutes and then roll them into circles.

Heat a non stick pan and cook the naan till you start seeing bubbles and brown spots. 

Place this on an open flame till it puffs up and is completely cooked.

You can add sesame seeds or kasuri methi to the naan for extra flavour. I have used kasuri methi here.
