Garlic and Butter Flatbread:

Garlic and Butter Flatbread, often known as “Garlic Naan,” is a beloved and aromatic bread that pairs perfectly with a variety of dishes. It’s a versatile addition to your culinary repertoire, whether you’re making it to accompany a hearty curry, as a base for your favorite toppings, or simply as a satisfying snack. This recipe promises soft, pillowy flatbreads with the richness of butter and the enticing aroma of garlic.


  • 350g of all-purpose flour
  • 250g of plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • Fresh cilantro or parsley, for garnish (optional)


Step 1: Prepare the Dough

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Mix these dry ingredients together.

  2. Gradually add the plain yogurt to the dry ingredients. Stir until a dough starts to form.

  3. Knead the dough for about 5-7 minutes until it’s smooth and elastic. If it’s too sticky, you can add a bit more flour, but avoid adding too much.

  4. Once your dough is well-kneaded, cover it with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes to relax the gluten.

Step 2: Prepare the Garlic Butter

  1. In a small saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over low heat.

  2. Add the minced garlic to the melted butter and cook for a minute or until the garlic is fragrant. Remove it from the heat.

Step 3: Shape and Cook the Flatbreads

  1. After the dough has rested, divide it into equal portions (usually around 6 pieces).

  2. Roll each portion into a ball and then flatten it into a round or oval shape, about 1/4 inch thick.

  3. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. You can lightly grease it with butter or oil, but it’s not necessary.

  4. Place a flattened piece of dough onto the hot skillet. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until it puffs up and has golden brown spots.

  5. While the flatbread is still hot, brush it with the garlic butter. You can also sprinkle some fresh cilantro or parsley on top if desired.

Step 4: Serve and Enjoy

  1. Serve your Garlic and Butter Flatbread hot alongside your favorite dishes, whether it’s a curry, grilled meats, or as a stand-alone snack.

  2. The buttery, garlicky aroma and the soft, slightly chewy texture make these flatbreads a delightful treat.


  • You can customize your flatbreads by adding spices like cumin, coriander, or chili flakes to the dough for extra flavor.

  • If you don’t have a skillet, you can also cook these flatbreads on a hot, lightly oiled baking sheet or in the oven under the broiler for a similar effect.

  • The addition of fresh herbs or grated cheese can enhance the flavor profile of your flatbreads.


Garlic and Butter Flatbread is a versatile and delightful addition to any meal. Its buttery richness and the enticing aroma of garlic make it a favorite among bread enthusiasts. Whether you’re serving it with savory dishes or enjoying it as a standalone snack, these flatbreads are sure to please your taste buds.
