Flatbreads are super delicious, and great for snacks, appetizers or go with a meal. And except for a little rolling pin action, sourdough naan is also really easy to make!
Mix, Roll, and throw on a skillet!
Sourdough Naan has great flavor with just a hint of sourdough tang. The texture is soft and tender, and perfect for serving with your favorite curry.
How to Make Easy Sourdough Naan
- Mix together the ingredients until you get a shaggy, sticky dough.
- Cover with a warm cloth and allow to rest 2-3 hours.
- Knead for a few minutes, until its smooth and no longer sticky.
- Divide into 8 pieces and roll out into circles that are about 1’4″ thick.
- Brush with melted butter and then cook on a hot skillet for 1 minute.
- Brush the top with melted butter and then turn over and cook for 1 minute.
- Remove and place on a plate with a towel to keep warm. Repeat, repeat, repeat!
Sourdough Naan Tips:
- Don’t let the rolling phase scare you – it doesn’t have to be in a perfect circle, and little rips and tears are ok. Naan is a rustic type bread, and its a forgiving dough. Just go for it!
- Make sure your skillet is nice and hot before you start! Part of the appeal of sourdough naan is that it has a nice crisp on the outside but is soft and tender inside – you get that from a hot skillet.
Naan Bread Flavors:
This sourdough naan recipe is a great recipe as is, but if you feel like being extra fancy and jazzing it up, try these flavors:

- 1 cup sourdough starter
- 1/2 cup warm milk
- 1/4 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 cups white whole wheat flour (I used 50% AP flour)
- pinch of kosher salt
- 5 TBSP melted butter
- In a large bowl mix together the sourdough starter, milk and yogurt until smooth.
- Add the baking powder and the flour and stir to combine to a shaggy, somewhat sticky dough.
- Cover with a damp cloth and let the dough rise in a warm place for 2-3 hours.
- Dump out on a lightly floured counter and knead for a minute or two, until smooth. You shouldn’t need to add much extra flour, if any to make it not stick to your hands.
- Preheat a heavy cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
- Divide the dough into 8 pieces and roll each piece into about 1/4″ thickness.
- Brush one side with melted butter and place butter-side down on the skillet.
- Cook for about a minute, or until the dough starts to bubble and release from the skillet.
- Brush the other side with melted butter and flip.
- Cook for an additional minute.
- Transfer to a plate and cover with a cloth to keep warm.
- Repeat with remaining pieces of dough and Enjoy!
