Avocado Naan

A delicious, moist Indian bread recipe that was easy!  No clay oven required.  🙂  Makes about 6 naans 4″ x 10″ or so.

  • 1/2 cup warm water (not hot!)
  • 1 Tbsp yeast
  • 2 tsp sugar of choice
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • heaping 1/3 cup mashed avocado (about 2/3 – 1 avocado)
  • 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast, optional
  • 2 – 3 Tbsp more whole wheat pastry flour
  • optional seeds for topping – e.g. sesame

In a medium bowl, combine warm water, yeast and sugar.  Allow to sit about 5 minutes and become frothy.

Add in flour, onion powder, baking powder, salt and avocado.  Knead for a couple of minutes.  Place back into the bowl and cover with a towel or plastic wrap.  Allow to rise for about 1 1/2 hours.

Place some additional flour on your kneading surface.  Knead in the nutritional yeast if you use it.  By hand, form into ovals, about 4″ x 10″ or so.  Sprinkle with seeds if you wish, and lightly push them a bit so they stick.

Heat a griddle on medium heat.  Place one or two naans on the griddle at a time and cook for a couple minutes per side until browned a bit.  Continue with the rest of the naans.  Serve immediately!
