  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup water + a bit more until a smooth dough forms
  • black and white sesame seeds to sprinkle on top


  • Heat a crepe pan or other flat pan over high heat.
  • Place the flour and salt in a bowl.
  • Add in the water and mix with your hand until it forms a nice dough like in the photos. You may have to add a bit more water until you can form a nice, smooth dough.
  • Divide the dough into two equal pieces and press them down a bit with your hand.
  • Sprinkle the sesame seeds on top and roll both of them out on a floured surface.
  • Bake one after another in the pan for about 30 seconds, turn and bake the other side for a few seconds. Just have an eye on them so they don't burn, they won't take long! 
  • Enjoy the sesame naan with your favorite curries!
