Naan Indian bread without oven  (made in the pan and 100% vegan)

Today I bring you without a doubt the cheapest recipe in this section of vegan recipes with the cheapest ingredients from the supermarket. I’m going to break down the price again so you can see how much two units of this bread cost (which is not only super easy and fast, but to make it we don’t need an oven, but I’ll tell you about that below) . The ingredients of this bread are wheat flour (€0.49 per 1kg), baking powder (€0.70 for about 90 grams), soy yogurt (4 units for €1.20), garlic (€1.50 several heads) olive oil, water, salt, basil.  Of these last ingredients I have used such a small amount that it is difficult to calculate the proportion of money it has cost. I would hardly count a few cents. And for its part, of the wheat flour, the yeast and the garlic I have not used the entire package, so each package would be used to make a lot of bread.

Since we still don’t have a decent oven in the apartment (yes, I know, I have to fix it), I still hadn’t made any homemade bread this whole month. With what I like to make doughs and create breads of different textures, flavors, colors and smells. The fact is that the other day my roommate made a pizza in the pan and I remembered when my mother used to make us homemade bread like that! So I was looking at some ideas and tips to make a good bread without an oven, because I was always wondering if the dough would really cook well inside.


280 grams of wheat flour (+ extra for kneading)
1/2 tablespoon of baking powder
1 yoghurt soy (125 ml). Important that it is sugar-free.
110 ml of warm water
A pinch of salt
Olive oil
Basil (I used fresh too)

Step by step

  1. In a bowl, mix the flour, the yeast, a pinch of salt and stir. Then, add the soy yogurt and stir again.

  2. Next, add the 110 ml of warm water (not hot) and add it slowly while kneading.
  3. < li>When the water is well distributed throughout the dough and begins to take shape, wash our hands and flour them (flour is a romantic way of saying that we get flour on our hands) and continue kneading for several minutes. If necessary so that it does not stick, we add more flour.

    Add the water and knead the dough. Leave it rest.

  4. Flour the table and remove the dough from the bowl. We continue kneading outside for 2 minutes. Shape into a ball.
  5. Then, grease a large plate with olive oil and place the dough on top. Let it rest for 1 hour, until it grows to double its size or almost (the time may vary depending on the temperature outside)
  6. After the hour of rest, divide the dough into two, ball again and carefully stretch it until it is a maximum of half a centimeter thick (without applying too much pressure, just to give it a rounded shape (see the second photo below).
  7. Grease a little bit of olive oil on one very large frying pan (I directly used a paella pan ) and heat it over medium heat.
  8. When it is hot, lower it to the minimum and place the two loaves on top.As it heats up, the bread will rise slightly and create a kind of “little bubbles” (look at the third photo below).
  9. When the bread begins to take color from below, we raise the heat to medium power and give it a last touch of heat so that it browns well and just get crispy.If necessary, add a little more olive oil ( but very little, we don’t want to fry, it’s just so as not to burn the pan).
  10. When the bread is golden on the bottom, we turn it over and brown on top.
    We slightly stretch the dough and make the bread in the pan.

  11. When it is well browned on both sides, remove it from the pan. Then, grease the top with a drizzle of olive oil and place the finely chopped garlic and basil on top. <If you are going to put fresh basil to decorate, wait until the bread is warmer, otherwise the leaf will burn> And ready!
