Ya'll, this Gluten Free Yeast Free Naan Bread is just as soft and tender (if not more so) as the yeast version. It can be made in half the time, and uses ingredients commonly found in your pantry and fridge!
½cup (120 g)plain whole-milk yogurt(see notes for using Greek style)
melted butter, ghee, or clarified butter for brushing(mixed with crushed garlic and parsley if desired)
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour blend, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a measuring cup, whisk together milk, yogurt, and honey. Pour wet mixture into dry ingredients and stir to combine. Dough will be very sticky and thick.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to chill for at least one hour and up to overnight.
Knead dough onto well-floured surface until fairly smooth. Divide dough into four equal pieces and roll each out with a rolling pin until a large tear-drop shape, about 1/4 inch thick.
Place each on a piece of parchment paper and set aside.
Heat cast iron or nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Sprinkle water on top of one of the dough pieces and flip over onto skillet, water side down. Peel away the parchment paper and cover the pan with a lid. Cook for about one minute, remove lid, sprinkle water over top side of dough, and flip dough over. Cover with lid again and cook for another minute before removing to a plate.
Finish cooking all four pieces and then brush each with melted butter, clarified butter, or ghee. Serve warm or at room temperature.
If you're using Greek style yogurt, add 1-2 tbsp of heavy cream or milk to about 1/2 a cup of Greek yogurt and stir. This will thin it out enough to use as regular yogurt.***DISCLAIMER: The reason I created my own flour blends is because I could not obtain the results I wanted with flour blends that were available in stores, online, or from other gluten free bloggers. My recipes have been developed to be used with my own bread flour blend that I created after painstakingly testing for, in some cases, YEARS to develop what I believe to be a superior gluten free bread like no other. If you do not use my gluten free bread flour blend for this recipe, I cannot speak for the results you will obtain. While store bought blends may give you a satisfactory result, they will NOT give you the results intended in my recipe.
