Imagine it. Steaming hot light and fluffy naan bread dipped into the most dippable red lentil dhal. Now imagine that this steaming bread is only 2 ingredients and will only take about 10 minutes to make. That is the beauty of this recipe. The second best thing about this easy homemade naan is that all (both!) the ingredients are available from Aldi. Honestly, guys. It's a good moment.
This is the naan bread to our curry. Specifically the red lentil dhal curry from yesterday. But, if we're being honest. On a weeknight, we're just not about making any bread that requires yeast and rising time. No. Ma'am. Instead, we get some Greek yoghurt (full fat if you please) and some self-raising flour. That's it! So, let's get right to it so that you can get dipping that naan in aaaall the things!

Ingredients needed for 2 ingredient naan bread
- Self-raising flour
- Greek yoghurt
- Okay. Some sea salt and vegetable oil are also required but I figure you've already got those so won't need to shop for them!
How to make this easy homemade naan bread
- Get a large bowl and place the flour and sea salt in the bowl and whisk them together.
- Add the Greek yoghurt to the flour and mix until you get a rough and shaggy (but not dry) dough.
- Flour the work surface lightly and gently knead the dough onto a smooth-ish ball. It may look a little bit like a cauliflower-like in the above photo.
- Divide the dough into 8 equal portions using a sharp knife.
- Use a rolling pin to roll each piece of the dough into a rough circle. We're in no way looking for perfection here. Think rustic and easy.
- Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush one side of the rolled out bread with the vegetable oil. Place the bread oiled side down in the pan and cook until the bottom is starting to colour and bubbles start to appear on the top. Like the above photo. This should take about 1-2 minutes. If your bread is getting too dark just turn the heat down a little.
- Flip the bread over and cook for another 1 minute until the bubbles start to colour.
- Keep the naan bread in a warm oven until you're ready to serve them. Sprinkle with fresh coriander if you like.
Naan Bread Add-Ins
If you want to jazz up your naan bread, I fully support you. Let's talk about what you may want to try...
- Mix dried ground spices like cumin into the flour before making the dough.
- Garlic butter- melt about 30g of butter and add in some chopped garlic. Brush on the naan bread after cooking. If you brush before cooking the garlic will burn.
