Gluten Free Naan

What is Naan?

Naan bread is a traditional Indian  flatbread. When made in India, it is usually cooked in a tandoor oven, making it slightly charred and perfectly chewy.  Though not typically gluten free., when you combine gluten free flour with xanthan gum and psylliuym husk, you'll get the flexible and soft texture.

Combine Wet Ingredients

Finish the Dough

Slowly stream in the warm milk while mixing. Mix for 5 minutes. 

Let it Rise

Make Dough Balls

Roll it Out

Cook the Bread

Keep them Warm

Wrap in a towel while you cook the remaining dough.
