Super Quick & Easy No-kneading Garlic Naan Bread


Finding a vegan Naan bread at your local supermarket can be challenging – there is milk powder in 90% of them. So stop searching and give making it at home a try. My Garlic Naan Bread recipe is so easy – you won’t believe it! You don’t need a traditional clay oven or hours to make naan! I simply use fry it in a pan and still this becomes wonderfully light and fluffy. This recipe makes 4 Naan Breads but I often double it. If you don’t eat all of it in one go, you can freeze it for up to 1 month.

Prep time Cook time Total Time
5 min 5 min 20  min


  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • A handful of chopped coriander leaves
  • 1 cup lukewarm soy milk
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 sachet of active dry yeast (-7g)
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar
  • 2tbsp plain soya yoghurt
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.5-2 cups white (spelt) flour
  • 2 tbsp of margarine
  • Optional: melted butter for brushing (you’ll get a nice buttery-Naan) if you want a really fluffy consistency add 1/2 tsp of baking powder as well!


  1. Whisk soy milk and vinegar together in a cup. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together 1/2 cup of the warm soy milk, yeast and sugar. Allow to stand for 5 min.
  3. Pour the curdly milk mix into the other one. Mix in salt, 1 tbsp of margarine, crushed garlic, coriander, yoghurt and one cup of flour at a time and start mixing (I use the hocks of my hand mixer) until the dough becomes elastic but smooth
  4. Cover the bowl with a kitchen bowl and leave it for 10mins (ideally until it doubles in size – but I usually never have the time to do that)
  5. Lightly butter a large nonstick skillet and place over medium-high heat
  6. Once hot, pour or scoop a fourth of your dough into the skillet
  7. Allow to cook for 2 minutes until the dough becomes puffy and golden, then flip it
  8. Cook about 2 minutes more and repeat for the remaining dough portions.
  9. Transfer to a clean tea towel to keep warm. Serve hot, and sprinkle with salt & coriander and brush with some margarine. Enjoy!
