Oven Naan Recipe



  • 1/4 ounce active dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp Warm (110-115°F)
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Warm milk (110-115°F)
  • 1/2 cup Yogurt
  • 1 beaten Egg
  • 1 tbsp Oil or melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt

How to make Oven Naan:

  • In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the yeast, sugar and 3 tbsp warm milk.
  • Cover and set aside for 5-10 minutes to activate the yeast.
  • Add the flour to a large mixing bowl and make a well in the center of the flour.
  • Whisk the remaining 1/2 cup warm milk, yogurt and eggs into the bowl with the yeast.
  • Pour the liquid ingredients into the center well of the flour, along with oil or butter and salt.
  • If using a mixer, beat with dough hook about 10 minutes until smooth.
  • To mix by hand, bring the ingredients together with a fork and then knead on a lightly floured work surface until smooth, about 10 minutes.
  • Form the dough into a ball and place it in a lightly oiled bowl.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and rest in a warm place until doubled in size, anywhere from 1-2 hours.
  • Punch the dough down with your fist and knead lightly.
  • Cut into 8-10 equal portions and roll into each into a ball.
  • Cover the balls lightly with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm spot until doubled again in size.
  • Set an empty baking sheet in the oven and preheat oven 475-500°F.
  • Roll each ball of dough into an oblong circle.
  • Brush each with oil or ghee and sprinkle with a garnish if desired.
  • Pat the garnish into the dough lightly with your hand.
  • Bake in batches on the preheated baking sheet for about 5 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Brush with melted butter or ghee as it comes from the oven if you like.
  • Oven Naan is ready to eat!
