Garlic or Plain Naan

Serving Size: 5 pieces

  • 3/4 cup plain almond milk; warmed
  • 1 packet active yeast 
  • 1 tbsp of maple syrup 
  • 3 tbsp of dairy free yogurt (soy yogurt used in recipe)
  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour (1/4 cup for dusting)
  • 1/2 cup spelt flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (to taste)
Garnish (Optional)
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro; finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves; grated or finely chopped 
  1. Warm(not more than 110 C) the almond milk and place it in a bowl. Add the active yeast and maple syrup to the warm milk and mix well. Keep it aside for 10 mins.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add the wheat flour, spelt flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix them well.
  3. Notice the yeast mixture to have bubbles or foaming. Add dairy-free yogurt and stir to combine.
  4. Add yeast mixture in the mixing bowl with the flour mix.
  5. Mix the ingredients well. Knead the mixture into a dough ball (If the dough gets sticky, dust little flour and continue kneading).
  6. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and leave it aside for 2 hours at room temperature. The dough will expand.
  7. Remove the dough from the bowl. If the dough is sticky turn on to a floured surface and knead for 30 secs.
  8. Take a piece of dough and roll on the palm of your hands into a small ball. Flatten the ball slightly.  (Mine w3-inchnch puck size). Place the dough balls aside for 5mins.
  9. Take a skillet (preferably heavy skillet) and place on medium heat.
  10. Dust a plain flat surface with a pinch of whole wheat flour. Take one dough ball at a time and using a rolling pin, roll the dough ball into a oval or circle. Flip the dough ball after every roll to avoid sticking to the flat surface.
  11. Using your hand or a basting brush, apply a thin layer of water to the rolled dough balls.
  12. (You can roll all the dough balls and then cook or cook while rolling them)
  13. Place the wet rolled dough ball side on the heated pan. (Take a small portion of garlic and cilantro to spread over the top surface of the naan)
  14. Once you see big  bubbles on the top uncooked side, it is time to flip the naan.
  15. Cook evenly both sides.
  16. Cut in half and enjoy with your favorite dish.
