Naan Bread without Yeast

Naan Bread without Yeast on Stove Top Recipe

Naan bread (usually just called as Naan) is a flatbread popular in India and other parts of Central and South Asia. I found a great recipe for making Naan Bread on the stove without using yeast on my friend’s blog and decided to give it a try. It’s simple, hassle free and the bread (which is almost like a tortilla) tastes amazing with any spicy side dish!

P.S: Although this recipe will give you soft and delicious flat bread, this isn’t anything like the typical chewy, thick Naan bread that you find in restaurants.
