Homemade naan bread is super quick and easy to make on the stove in a cast iron skillet or in a griddle, not to mention it is soft, bubbly, chewy and delicious! This delicious bread is just like you would find in an Indian restaurant and is sure to be a favorite side to any meal.
In a measuring cup combine the warm water and yeast. Dissolve the yeast in the warm water, and then add the honey to it.
Set aside for a few minutes and allow the yeast mixture to sit until a foam head grows on top.
In a large mixing bowl or mixer whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda.
Form a well in the middle of the bowl and to this add the egg. Beat the egg, and then whisk in the yogurt.
Pour in the yeast mixture.
Using a large spoon mix all the ingredients together until combined.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and allow the it to rest for a couple of minutes.
Knead the dough and add additional flour if kneaded until you have a soft dough.
Instant Pot - lightly oil inside of pot. Set your Instant Pot to the Yogurt function on low for 30 minutes to proof or rise.
Instant Precision Dutch Oven - lightly oil inside of pot. Set to Manual Mode 1 at 85-degrees for one-hour to proof or rise.
Once dough has roughly doubled in size remove from pot, and turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
Cut the dough into 8 pieces. Form each piece into a ball, and then roll out to about ¼-inch thickness.
Cook in a cast iron skillet or griddle on medium-high heat with a small amount of oil.
Once the dough starts to bubble, and has enough bubbles for you then flip to cook for a couple more minutes on the other side.
Remove to plate for serving.
Serve immediately or store in an airtight storage bag or container for up to 5 days. Freeze up to three months in a freezer bag or container then thaw on counter or in refrigerator.
Only add in as much flour as you need to make a soft dough which will be slightly moist. You can always add more, but you can't remove it after adding it in so be careful.Don't worry if all the pieces are not equal or uniform in size. If you want thinner naan bread with more bubble than roll out thinner than the recommended ¼-inch thickness.Add your favorite spices, herbs, or even cheese to the dough for different flavor combinations. Brush with garlic butter and top with fresh chopped herbs for a nice treat.
