Garlic Naan Bread

These warm buttery pieces of bread went SOOO well with my Red Thai curry!! (See images below)

Prep : 1h20 mins / Cook : 4-6 per naan bread/ Total : 2h

Serving : 8 pieces

3 types of garlic sauce!


1/4 cup warm water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
3/4 cup warm milk
3/4 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 melted butter, for brushing
2 tbsp epis seasoning or 4 cloves minced garlic
1 shallot or Fresh cilantro, to top


  1. Combine the yeast, sugar, and water and let sit until very foamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk the flour and salt together in a large bowl and create a well in the center.
  3. Whisk in the warm milk and sour cream into the yeast mixture until well-combined. add into the well in the dry ingredients.
  4. Stir until a dough is formed, then knead on a floured surface until smooth, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic or a damp kitchen towel.
  6. Let rise at room temperature until doubled in size, about 30 mins-1 hour. (This is my fav part!!)
  7. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Knead briefly into a disc shape and cut the dough into equal-sized pieces (8-12). Roll each piece into a ball.
  8. Add the minced garlic to the remaining melted butter. add to the microwave for 15 seconds set aide.
  9. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat.
  10. Roll each dough ball out until it is about 1/4 inch thick.
  11. Brush the dough with butter and place one at a time onto the hot skillet.
  12. Cook until large bubbles form on the surface, about 2 minutes. Flip the dough and cook the other side until golden, about 1-2 more minutes.
  13. Stack the cooked flat bread on a plate and cover with a towel to keep warm as you cook the remaining pieces.
  14. Brush the warm naan with the garlic butter and the chopped shallot or cilantro. Serve it hot!
