Oh. My. Days. These Clean Eating Indian Naan Breads are the BEST naan breads I have ever eaten… Ever! If I’d have known it was going to be this easy to make my own naan bread, I would have tried them out years ago. They tastes whole, real and authentic thanks to the genius that is the Nigella Seed. These little matte black charcoal like seeds hold all the flavour of naan bread inside them. Amazing!
If you love naan bread, give these a go. They are a great complex carbohydrate to go along with my Clean Eating Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry or Clean Eating Slow Cooker Curried Chicken. Add a side of steamed greens; spinach, broccoli, peas and asparagus and you have my idea of heaven on a plate.
Have you ever tried making your own naan bread before?
Clean Eating Indian Naan Bread

These Clean Eating Indian Naan Breads are the BEST naan breads I have ever eaten thanks to the genius that is the Nigella Seed.
- 200 grams Plain Wholemeal Flour
- 1 pinch Fine Sea Salt approx 1/4 teaspoon
- 1 Tablespoon Sunflower Oil
- 120 ml Milk of choice (I used oat milk)
- 1 teaspoon Nigella Seeds
- Place the flour and salt in a bowl and combine with a fork.
- Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the oil and milk.
- Using a spoon or a fork, mix the oil and milk into the flour from the inside of the well, outwards.
- Once the dough is combined, take it out and place onto a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes, adding extra flour if needed. Alternatively, place the dough in a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment and knead on a medium speed for 5 minutes.
- Once kneaded, divide the dough into 4 equal balls, and form each ball into a pear shape.
- Roll the pear shaped dough out until it resembles a small naan bread.
- Sprinkle over the nigella seeds on both sides of the naan bread and press into the dough with your hands or a rolling pin.
- Heat up a non stick pan over a medium high heat and once hot, cook each naan bread for 1-2 minutes, turning to cook each side. (You can use a spatula to check the bottom of each side to see if it is browned and cooked).
- Serve warm.
