Oven Baked Naan Bread

Further to my post of yesterday for Naan Bread, this is an alternative to making this incredibly moreish bread.

Oven Baked Naan Bread



1 tsp dried active yeast
1 tbsp warm water
1 tsp sugar
250ml plain flour
pinch black onion seeds (optional) 
¼ tsp salt 
½ tsp baking powder
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp natural yoghurt
2 tbsp milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 140˚C.
  2. In a bowl, mix the yeast with one tablespoon of warm water.  Stir in the sugar and leave it in a warm place for 10 minutes until the yeast is covered with froth.
  3. Meanwhile, mix together the flour, onion seeds, salt and baking powder.  Stir in the oil, yoghurt and milk and then stir in the activated yeast mixture.
  4. Knead the dough until soft and pliable, around 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Place the dough in a mixing bowl, cover with cling film or a damp cloth and leave it in a warm place to rise for 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Divide the dough into four balls and roll each into a long oval shape.  Don’t roll them too thin as they will turn out like crisps.
  7. Place them on a greased baking tray and place them in the centre of the oven for 10 to 15 minutes.  They are ready when they have puffed up a little.


Brush with melted butter and garlic when baked.
