QUICK NO YEAST FLATBREAD — This easy, delicious flatbread requires no yeast or rising. Fry it up in a skillet for wraps and sandwiches, or serve it as a side with almost any meal.
I was craving naan to go with an Indian meal I was preparing one evening, but I knew I didn’t have time for the required rising, and that’s when I discovered this Quick No Yeast Flatbread.
It was the perfect quick solution, and it was so fast and easy, I’ve made it many times since then.
My family said they couldn’t even tell the difference than this and my naan bread recipe with yeast. To be honest, I can tell the difference, and I do like the version with yeast better.
But this bread was incredibly good, and considering the savings in time and effort, it really is on par with a more complicated recipe.
I mean, whats not to love about soft, savory bread that’s fried in some olive oil until slightly crisp and golden on the outside, but tender on the inside?
The bread still puffs up a bit, and develops a few bubbles during cooking, thanks to the baking soda and powder in the dough.
I seasoned my bread with some salt and garlic powder. But there are so many possibilities for adding unique flavors to this bread.
Fresh minced garlic would be amazing, and so would a variety of fresh herbs. You can mix your seasoning right into the dough, or brush the cooked bread with olive oil and sprinkle on seasoning then.
Or, you could do what I did and do both! The flavor was amazing! Thankfully, knowing my family would love this, I doubled the batch. If you do have leftovers they’re great for wraps or mini pizzas the next day.
If you want to try making homemade naan or flatbread, this Quick No Yeast Flatbread is the perfect recipe to start with. You’re going to love it!
