Sourdough Naan Bread

This sourdough naan recipe is a breeze! Who knew it was so easy to make such a versatile classic with sourdough starter or discard? Super flavorful with a perfectly cooked exterior and soft texture, sourdough discard naan bread will be at the top of your sourdough discard recipe list.





Minutes prep



all  purpose flour

sourdough  discard

olive  oil





baking powder

Step 1

Combine wet ingredients in one bowl and dry ingredients in another.

Step 2

Mix until it  comes together in a shaggy dough. Move to the counter and knead until it is fully combined and comes together in a ball.

Step 3

Cover and place in a warm spot for 5-6 hours or until it has doubled in size.

Step 4

Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and form into loose balls by tucking the edges under (like you would with buns) until they are relatively round.

Step 5

Pour half of the olive oil on your heavy bottomed cast iron skillet or non-stick pan and spread it around. Turn the heat up to medium.

Step 6

While the pan is preheating, lightly flour your work surface and rolling pin. Roll the naan so that it is 1/4 inch thick (about 6-7 inches in diameter).


While rolling, continually lift and turn your dough to make sure that it isn't sticking to the counter and the dough is as round as possible (it may not be a perfect circle, but thats okay!).

Step 7

Cook the sourdough naan for 30-60 seconds or until the dough puffs up, bubbles, and easily releases from the pan. Flip and cook for another 30 seconds. If you find that it is burning, turn the heat down and leave it for less time.

Step 8

Serve this sourdough naan warm or cool with tzatziki, hummus, or cover in your favorite topping for a delicious appetizer.
