Two Ingredient Naan Bread

Hello Dear Reader,

Last week, when I made this wonderful Mulligatawny Soup, I wanted to have some fresh bread with it but knew that I wouldn't have the time to make a loaf, so I went online in search of a quick bread to serve with it. I really didn't know what I was searching for but when this great little recipe showed up, I thought "that's absolutely perfect". A very quick and easy bread to make with only two ingredients and best of all, I had those two ingredients already at home and I'll bet you do too.

So the magic ingredients are-SR flour and Greek or Natural Yoghurt, see nothing special but get those two together, give it some love in the form of a good knead, a good roll out and some heat from a fry pan and voila, almost instant Naan Bread. I made this Naan bread two nights in a row because it was so good but on the second night I invested some more ingredients and was rewarded with an even better tasting Naan bread. On the second night I added 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of Nigella seeds, I also made a quick garlic butter to brush over the Naan as they cooked, holy moly, really quick, Garlic Naan Bread-even better!

So here is the quickest, easiest most delicious bread you will ever make-

Ingredients for Two Ingredients Naan Bread, 260 gram SR flour and 200 grams of Greek or Natural Yoghurt. I would encourage you though to include 1 teaspoon each of salt and nigella seeds plus make a simple garlic butter by melting 20 grams of butter with 1 clove of garlic, sliced and a good grind of salt on low heat for about 10 minutes. So technically it is 5 ingredient Naan Bread!

Knead the ingredients in a bowl until it just starts coming together, it may seem like it will never come together, but believe me, it does

Then turn out onto a lightly floured bench or board 

And give it a good knead for 5 minutes or so

Roll out into a longish sausage shape

And divide into 6 pieces, you don't need to be precise, rustic is good

Cover with a damp cloth for 10 minutes to rest

Then roll out with a floured rolling pin into longish ovals, again, no precision needed. Roll them out, not too thin and not too thick

Heat a heavy based, non stick frypan to medium high heat, brush with a little oil and add two Naan breads at a time

Cook them for 2 minutes a side, once the first side is cooked, brush the top with the melted garlic butter and keep warm on a platter as you cook the rest of the Naan

This is the second batch of Naan Bread I made with the Nigella seed, such wonderful flavour

Brushed with garlic butter and ready to be devoured

Give them a whirl tonight!

Have a lovely day

  1. I have made these on several occasions, I originally got the recipe from Jamie Oliver. I concur they do need a little salt, and they are super easy and delicious!

    1. Hi Cheryl,
      It’s a corker of a recipe isn’t? I made another batch on Friday night to have with breakfast on Saturday morning. I just popped them in the toaster is warm through, they were brilliant with Vegemite, avocado and an egg. Have a lovely day Cheryl,

  2. I think I shall make us some Naan bread tonight. Looks delicious! Meg:)

    1. Hi Meg,
      Yes totally delicious especially with the garlic butter😊 have a lovely day, Fi

  3. Isn't this a great quick and simple and oh so fluffy....yum

  4. You’ve done it again. I’ll just have to make these and will definitely add the salt. Don’t have Nigella seeds at the moment but will put them on my list.

    1. Hi Gail,
      Yes please do add the salt, even for someone like me who doesn’t add a lot of salt to things, these really do need the extra love that salt brings. Fi
