  • 250 grams gluten free flour about 2 cups (can use a regular flour too)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3-4 cloves mashed garlic
  • handful fresh cilantro chopped
  • vegan yogurt start with 1/2 cup and add more as needed (can use regular Greek yogurt for non vegan version)
  • 2-3 tablespoons coconut oil or vegan butter or ghee for non dairy version
  1. In a large bowl combine flour, yogurt, garlic and cilantro, and mix. Add more yogurt if necessary to make the dough less dry.

  2. Mix the dough until everything is combined and continue to knead the dough until you have a round smooth ball. Rub the dough ball with 1 tablespoon vegan butter. Let sit for 15-20 minutes.

  3. Break 4-6 small pieces off the dough and form a round ball. Using a rolling pin roll out the dough ball.

  4. Heat a pan (preferably cast iron skillet or wok) over medium heat and add a small amount of coconut oil or vegan butter to the pan. Lightly pan cook the garlic naan on one side, adding vegan butter or coconut oil to the top side and then flip over and cook on the other side.

Recipe Notes

If you are not vegan or gluten free you can make this recipe with regular all purpose flour, Greek style yogurt and ghee (clarified butter)
