Okay. Listen up. Things are getting so good today. We're talking naan bread. More specifically, miracle 2 ingredient naan bread. Creamy Greek yogurt mixed with fluffy self-raising flour and a pinch of salt. *Hint: you can add anything else you want to jazz up the flavor.
Five ways to jazz up your 2 ingredient naan bread
- Chilli flakes
- fresh cilantro
- fennel seeds
- caraway seeds
I get really excited when I can bring recipes to the table (pardon the pun!) that are super simple and delicious and that I know will make you feel like a million bucks for 1. having made them and they're awesome and 2. for making your recipe arsenal just a little bit stronger.
How To Make 2 Ingredient Naan Bread (Video)
It's always awesome when all the recipes on salted Mint can do that, but sometimes we just hit on a recipe that I know will be made time and again and you'll make this 2 ingredient naan bread your own by customising it and adding the flavours that your family loves and before you know it, this naan won't be my recipe any more, it will be your recipe and a new family classic at that.
You see, these 2 ingredient naan breads are going to be making an appearance at your table a lot. Like A LOTTTTT. They take literally 2 minutes to mix up, and another 2 minutes to cook in a dry frying pan. Ummmm... yeah. That's it. Seriously, that's it.
You need a dry frying pan to get all those lovely charred patches that are so typical of traditional naan bread. Those charred patches can range from light golden to dark (almost too dark, but not quite) deep charred brown. The choice is yours. For lighter patches, cook your bread on a lower heat for a longer time. Darker patches... you guessed it. Higher heat, less time. But not too high that we end up on the darker side of burnt.
And please don't think for a single second that this naan bread can only be served with a curry dish. No. These soft and fluffy, slightly charred breads can be served with chilli, soup, they can be used to mop up after pasta or any other saucy kind of dish. But yes. They are also fabulous with a curry, which we'll talk about tomorrow.
And No. You do not need to buy self raising flour to make these 2 ingredient naan breads. However, if you choose to make your own self raising flour (see the notes) these will officially be 3 ingredient naan breads. But, you'll still fall in love with them and they will still be the easiest bread you every make.
Miracle 2 Ingredient Naan Bread
- 2 heaped soup spoons of self raising flour
- 2 heaped soup spoons of fat free Greek yogurt
- pinch of salt
- Place the yogurt and the self raising flour in a bowl and mix well.
- The dough should be soft, but not sticky. If it’s sticky add more flour.
- Tip the dough onto a floured surface and bring into a disc.
- Cut the dough into 4 - 6 pieces, depending on the size of naan you want. Roll out to about 5mm thick.
- Heat a non stick skillet over a medium high heat and add the naan. Cook in the dry pan for about 3 minutes on the first side. Flip and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.
- Serve with curry, chilli, or pasta.

I see this note will be kinda old, but I just found your recipe on Pinterest. I’m moderately experienced with yeast and sourdough breads, and I want to give flatbreads a try. Lately, I’ve been experimenting with curries, so I see a nexus here.
Anyway, your recipe calls for soup spoons of flour and yoghurt (just serious typos, I know,) but your video shows what looks like a large tea or soup cup. How big is it, or better yet, what weights of flour and yoghurt does it come to?
I see your site is going to be worth some deep exploration. Thanks.

Hi Rob! Thanks so much for the prompt. This recipe has been on my list to update and you've just given me the nudge I need to get it done this week! The measurements are 375 grams self-raising flour and 300 grams of Greek yogurt. Once you start to knead the dough you'll need to flour your surface generously to keep it from sticking. I'm loving how experimental you are in the kitchen! And yes, these flatbreads are the perfect easy accompaniment to any curry. Let me know how it goes! Thanks for reading!
I just made these, and let me say they are as delicious as they are easy to make. I couldn’t figure out how big a soup spoon was, so I just did 1 cup each of the flour and yogurt. This ended up making 8 breads. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.

I had one container of peach flavored Skye (Icelandic yogurt) in the fridge. I dumped that in to a bowl, cleaned and dried the container, and then refilled it with the same amount of flour! I made it into the ball stage and decided to try sweet naan- so I added some faux sugar and worked it into the dough ball. I cooked in a frypan until nicely seared and served with a mild white cheese. Yum! My husband who adhors trying new items, loved them.
