I flew out of bed today realizing I had forgotten all about the Secret Recipe Club. I had the recipe for baked naan already bookmarked, and I sure picked the right recipe to get a post up within the hour. I used Spelt flour which gave the naan a nutty flavor. We poured melted butter on our homemade naan and it was so good.

The Secret Recipe Club assigns us a blog each month. We choose one of their recipes and do a link up all at the same time. I chose delicious baked Naan from  My Hobbie Lobbie.   Who knew something we love so much was this easy.

Trisha is very happily married to a man who is her rock. She shines when she talks about him. She’s also started another blog called Claire’s Party Supplies. Crafting is one of her loves. She grew up under great cooks and has a passion for recipes. I had a lot of fun going from one to the next trying to find food that was different for me, something to challenge me. My husband loves Naan and this is going to be a happy morning for him.

A few cooking notes:  At first I tried to pan fry in my cast iron griddle (no oil) and they didn’t rise. I then followed the directions and put them under the broil on the low setting. Worked like a charm. Depending on how thick you roll them out, it’s 1-2 minutes each side. At first I was rolling them out a little too thickly and it was 2 minutes. Eventually, I started rolling a little thinner and they charred at 2 minutes, so watch your broiler carefully. I also cut the oil in half.

  1. Is there a trick to kneading the dough? Mine was very crumbly. Added milk by the TB and got it to hold together, but still very tough to knead.

  2. Hi Angela,

    Does it make a difference if one uses white spelt or whole spelt? Also, I saw some recipes use yogurt instead of milk. Would it really make a difference?


  3. Great pick! I’m amazed you managed to pull a post together so quickly, especially one that involved creating a whole batch of naan from scratch. 🙂
    I’ve tried my hand at making naan at home a few times, but I could never get them as crispy and browned as the ones from the restaurant… that broiler trick sounds like it’s exactly what I was missing in the past. Totally trying this technique next time!

  4. I hope you liked it. I had almost forgotten about this post … almost! Thanks for the reminder. I love that you tried it out with spelt flour, will have to try that out soon.

  5. Amazing that you pulled a post so quickly, and so well!

    I love naan, but did not have much luck trying to make it at home… yours turned out perfect, and spelt flour is always a wonderful ingredient to play with

    Great job!
