Homemade Cajun Naan Bread

Homemade Cajun Naan Bread


  • 1 cup warm water

  • 1 package instant yeast

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 egg

  • 1/4 cup buttermilk

For the Infused Oil:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil

  • 5 cloves garlic, crushed

  • Flaky sea salt


  1. Begin by proofing your yeast. In a bowl, combine warm water, yeast, and sugar. Let it stand for 10 minutes until foamy.

  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, combine flour, Cajun seasoning, salt, baking powder, egg, buttermilk, and proofed yeast. Stir on low speed until a sticky dough forms. Cover and let it rise for at least an hour.

  3. While the dough is rising, prepare the infused oil. In a saucepan, combine olive oil, crushed garlic, and a generous sprinkle of sea salt. Heat over medium heat until the garlic is golden and bubbly. Alternatively, you can use a toaster oven and heat the oil for about 12 minutes at 350 degrees F.

  4. Once the dough has doubled in size, turn it out onto a well-floured surface. Knead gently and shape it into a smooth ball. Divide the dough into quarters, then divide each quarter into halves. You should get about 16 pieces in total. Shape each piece into a ball and roll it out until about 1/4-inch thick. Brush the dough with the infused oil and carefully place it on a heated cast iron pan over medium-high heat, oil side down. Brush the other side of the dough with more infused oil. Once it begins to bubble, flip it and continue to cook for about 3 minutes until the bubbles are deep golden. Repeat this process for the remaining dough.

  5. Serve the Cajun Naan Bread warm with your favorite dishes and the remaining infused oil.
