Sourdough Discard Naan Story

This sourdough discard naan recipe is easy enough for beginners and a great way to use your sourdough discard. Naan is a rustic Indian flatbread that doesn't need to look perfect, with a fluffy & tender texture and a slightly chewy and golden exterior.

Ingredients Needed

– Sourdough discard – Warm milk – Greek yogurt – All-purpose flour – Whole wheat flour – Baking powder – Salt – Granulated sugar – Unsalted butter – Fresh cilantro

Recipe Instructions

In a large bowl, whisk together sourdough discard, milk, and yogurt until well-combined.

Recipe Instructions

Add the flours, baking powder, salt, and sugar, and stir to combine. The dough should still be somewhat sticky and tacky but not dry.

Recipe Instructions

Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and let the dough rise in a warm place for 2-3 hours. The dough will be ready when you can gently dent the dough with your finger and it springs back.

Recipe Instructions

 On a lightly floured surface, knead dough until smooth, about 1-2 minutes.

Recipe Instructions

Divide the dough into 8 pieces, using a pastry cutter or sharp knife. Using a rolling pin, roll each piece of dough into about ¼" thickness. Add a bit more flour if dough is still too sticky.

Recipe Instructions

Preheat a cast-iron or stainless steel skillet over medium-high heat.

Recipe Instructions

Brush a small amount of melted butter into the hot skillet. Add one rolled out piece of dough to the skillet and cook for about 1-2 minutes, until the dough starts to bubble up. Brush the top of dough with butter before flipping  to cook the other side for an additional minute.
