Make Vegan Naan at Home

The rules of traditional culinary do not apply to vegan cooking anymore, thanks to curious and passionate chefs like Juhi from Go Vegan Life. Like me, if you also haven’t enjoyed your favorite curries with a soft and fluffy naan since you turned vegan, this recipe is for you.

Before you decide to make these delicious and fluffy naans for dinner, I must tell you that the dough needs to rest for 2-3 hours, so plan your prep accordingly.

Without further ado, let’s get started!

Ingredients you will need to make vegan naan at home:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Warm water
  • Vegan Butter
  • Chopped garlic (for garlic naan)

Note: this recipe makes 4 naan/ Indian flatbread

How to make vegan naan at home:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt.
  • Add the vegetable oil and mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Gradually add the warm water, mixing until a dough forms. Knead the dough for about 2-3 minutes, until it becomes smooth, and cover the dough with a damp towel/ cloth.
  • Let the dough rest for 2-3 hours or at least 1/2 an hour.
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces, and then again, before rolling the dough, let it rest for 10 minutes.
  • Roll out each piece of dough into a thin circle, about 1/4 inch thick. To make Garlic naan, stuff the dough with as much chopped garlic as you like before rolling.
  • Heat a griddle or skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Cook the rolled-out dough for 1-2 minutes on each side, until lightly browned and puffed.
  • Apply vegan butter on the naan right after taking it off the skillet.
  • Serve hot with a curry or dal of your choice.
