Dairy-Free Naan with Simple Mango Salsa

Naan is a wonderful bread that is easy to make. This recipe is a little time intensive, but you have more than enough to share and use throughout the week.  Leftover naan is great for making quick meals and garnishing with veggies and herb oils for a quick broil under the oven. 


Simple Mango Salsa: 1 ripe mango (diced), 1 small bundle of cilantro (minced, do not use the stems), 1 lime (for juicing), 1 pinch of salt/pepper, 1 tsp. of red pepper flakes and 1 half of a medium red onion (diced)
3/4 cup of luke warm water
1 packet of yeast (1 tbsp.)
1 tsp. of sugar
1 cup of all whole wheat flour
1.5 cups of all purpose flour
1 tsp of salt
1 lemon (for juicing)
1 minced garlic clove
1/4 cup of olive oil
Sunflower or vegetable oil for frying


1Combine water, sugar and yeast in a large bowl. Let the yeast dissolve and froth for 10-15 mins.
2In a small bowl mix your dry ingredients and minced garlic (you can also add fresh cut herbs or scallions)
3Once yeast is frothing and dissolved add olive oil, salt and lemon juice.
4Add dried mixture to the large bowl with liquids. Using a spatula or fork gently mix the ingredient together until a soft ball is formed. At this point if the dough is too dry, add a couple of tbsp. of water. If the dough too wet, ad a little of flour 1 tbsp. at a time until the ball forms.
5Add a little oil to the sides of dough and let it rest for 1.5-2hrs. covered under a damp towel.
6After the ball has doubled in size, dump the dough onto a clean, flour covered space. Knead for five mins. Keep the ball smooth, then cut into 6-10 pieces, roll each piece into a ball.
7Place the balls of dough onto a clean dish or deep pan and cover with a damp towel again for 15-30 mins. The balls will rest and increase in size.
8After the second rising, use a rolling pin to roll out each ball onto a clean floured surface. Flatten out in a circle or oblong each ball, at 4-6inches in diameter. Let the dough balls rest for a few minutes.
9Turn on a burner to medium heat, heat a large frying pan with oil. Use just enough oil to coat the pan.
10Take one of the flattened dough pieces and place it the hot pan. Large bubbles will begin to form on one side and you should see a light golden color forming on the edges cooking within the oil. After 2-5 mins flip. 2-5 mins fry and then remove the naan and place it on a plate covered with paper towels to soak up any excess oil.
11Continue with the rest of the dough until you are done.
12Let cool for 5-7 mins and then serve warm or at room temperature.

Cook's Tips:

You can add 3 tsp. of fresh cut herbs and spices to the dough for extra flavor. Fresh naan will be good for up to 1 week if wrapped or sealed tightly at room temperature or stored in the fridge.
