Total: 1 hr 10 mins


  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • tsp quick rise yeast, (1 package) such as Red Star
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¾ cup water, 120 to 130 degrees F
  • ¼ cup oil

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1½ cups flour, yeast, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Add warm water, oil, and yogurt to the flour mixture.

  2. Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 1 minute at medium speed.

  3. Switch to the dough hook and gradually mix in the remaining flour to make a smooth dough, add more or less flour as necessary. Knead for 5 minutes.

  8. Cook for about 2 minutes until the bottom is lightly browned and starting to puff. Spray with additional water and flip the naan over and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
