The Difference Between Naan and Roti

Roti and Naan are both Indian flat breads. They are different because of the ingredients used. Naan is made with different flour and with yeast.



1 tsp sugar
120 ml warm water
300 g all-purpose flour
20 g yeast
60 g yogurt
1 tsb peanut oil
3 tbs Ghee

First mix sugar, warm water and yeast in a bowl. Stir to combine well. Transfer flour to a flat surface and make a well in the middle. Add the yeast mixture, yoghurt and peanut oil. Now knead the dough until the surface becomes smooth. This can be up to 10 minutes. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rise for 1 hour in a warm place.

Divide the dough into 8 equal portions and make a flat circle using a rolling spin. The dough shouldn´t be to thin.

How heat a pan, add some more peanut oil and fry the dough on high heat. When it puffs up and bubbles and burnt spots appear, flip it over and cook the other side.

At the end brush the Naan with the Ghee and serve with one of our Indian dishes. It´s perfect with Paneer Butter Masala or Shahi Matar Paneer.
