  • flat pan
  • Rolling Pin


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • Butter
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp Dried or Fresh Cilantro chopped


  • Combine all dry ingredients, and whisk well together. This includes spices
  • Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the milk and oil. Mix until it forms a ball. Put on the counter and knead until very smooth and elastic. This takes at least 5 minutes . Add flour if necessary
  • Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
  • Divide into six even balls and lightly coat with flour again.
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Roll one piece of dough until very thin. Smear a small amount of butter on pan before each piece. One at a time, cook the naan for about 90 seconds, or until parts are browning well, on each side. When they are done, you can brush them with butter. Especially helpful if they have a bit of flour cooked on them.


This naan is smaller, and we follow this Naan Recipe because we do not have leftovers and we do not overeat it.  If you want more, simply double everything.
