Cumin Naan Bread

Cumin Naan Bread

These easy to make naan breads/flat breads are a quick solution when you need something bready to mop up the juices of a delicious curry. They taste great and there is no yeast, kneading, proving etc necessary. They aren't as light as a traditional naan, but the speed in which you can make them, who cares!


  • 400g gluten and wheat free self-raising flour - plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds - toasted
  • 350ml plain natural yogurt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Drizzle of olive oil


Serves: 8

Diet: Gluten and Wheat Free

Cuisine: Indian

Type: Snacks


Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 10 mins

Simply mix all the ingredients together to form a dough and split the dough into 8 small balls.

Take one ball of dough and press between your hands and shape into a circular naan/flatbread that is approximately half a centimetre thick.

Place this on the hot griddle and cook for approximately 5 minutes on each side until golden and brown. Repeat with each naan/flatbread and serve warm with a drizzle of olive oil.

You can experiment with different flavours – you might like to try a tsp of mixed herbs instead of the cumin for a Mediterranean feel.
