Kalonji Wheat Naan Recipe / Wheat Naan Recipe without Yeast

I make wheat naan bread often, because i love the slight sweet taste it gives, plus it is so filling than chapati so i can make a couple for each one..I already have a version of wheat naan without yeast in my blog, but it has some all purpose flour in it. That naan recipe taste yum too, but i wanted to share a new post of 100% whole wheat naan. So here i am..

And also instead of making it plain, i added some kalonji, onion seeds on top and made it as a kalonji naan. I loved the slightly hint of onion flavour it gives to the naan, plus it looks really pretty..I served this naan with vegetable salna and it was divine..Hope you will like this and give it a try..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Resting Time : 30 mins
Cooking Time : 1 to 2 min per naan
Makes : 8 naan


Whole Wheat Flour / Atta - 2 cup
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Curd / Yogurt - 1/4 cup
Milk - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 tblspn
Water - as needed
Oil - 1 tblspn for kneading in dough
Kalonji / Nigella Seeds / Onion Seeds - 2 tblspn or as needed
Butter / Ghee for smearing on top of naan


Take curd, milk and sugar in a bowl. Mix well so the sugar is melted.

Add in wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix well to form a dough. Add water if needed.

Drizzle some oil over the dough and knead it well. Set aside for 30 mins.

Now divide the dough into equal balls.

Take one balls on a rolling board. Roll it into slightly thick naan..

Sprinkle some kalonji seeds and use a rolling pin to roll over it gently so the seeds are stuck to the naan bread.

Now place the naan bread seed side down over a hot tawa and cook till you see bubble forming on top surface..

Now flip it over and cook for few sec.

Now invert the seed side over hot open flame and toast it till it gets light charred marks.

Now remove it to a plate. Smear some butter or ghee over it and serve hot.
