The Best Naan Recipe (and it's Vegan)
Makes: 6-8 Naans

  • 3 cups flour (some extra for rolling out the dough)
  • 2 tsp yeast
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter (melted)/vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp lime/lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup coconut yoghurt
  • Vegan butter to brush the cooked naans.
  • Spray oil


  • Mix all the ingredients using a food processor or you hands.
  • Sprinkle a clean working surface with some all purpose flour. Knead vigorously for 5 minutes. (If the flour is too sticky, add 2-3 Tbsp of all purpose flour)
  • Transfer the dough into a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a damp cloth. Leave it aside in a warm and dry place for approx. 2-3 hours. (The dough should double in size)
  • Divide the dough into 6-8 equal portions, and roll them out using a rolling pin, about 1/2 cm thick. (spray some oil on the surface to make the rolling easier).
  • If you are adventurous, make dimples using your fingers in the rolled out naans. Be careful not to break them.
  • Heat up a flat non-stick frying pan or a flat skillet on medium-high heat, and gently place the rolled out naan. Cook until you see some air bubbles on top and its golden at the bottom with some black spots.
  • Flip the Naan using tongs, and cook again for few minutes until golden with few black spots.
  • Brush one side of the cooked naans with vegan butter and serve hot.
