Getting a big basket of garlic naan flatbread was always one of the best things about going out to eat at an Indian Restaurant. One of our favorite restaurants (Apna Pubjab in Johnston RI!) makes the best Indian food around… and the best garlic naan. I wanted to recreate the simple flatbread at home, and use my sourdough discard to add flavor and texture.

What’s In This Sourdough Garlic Naan Bread?

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for spreading
4 cloves garlic, chopped

Recipes Using Sourdough Starter Discard

This Sourdough Garlic Naan recipe is the perfect way to use your sourdough discard from a starter. I hate throwing out food (or rather, composting it!)- so I’m always looking for ways to re-use kitchen scraps to cut back on waste. Instead of tossing your discard when you feed your sourdough starter, try this awesome recipe instead. I have a whole page on my site for recipes that use sourdough discard. That way you can add a hint of sourdough flavor to your baked goods, and cut back on food waste.

How Do I Make This Sourdough Garlic Naan Bread Recipe?

Add all ingredients (except garlic + parsley) to a large bowl. Mix well to combine the dough. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes, adding more flour if the dough is too sticky. Cover and let rest for 1 hour.
To cook, heat a cast iron skillet until hot (I did this over medium-high heat, a 6 out of 10 on my electric stove). Divide the dough into 6 even disks and roll each until they are about 1/4inch thick. Place one piece of rolled dough on the hot skillet. Allow to cook for about 75 to 90 seconds, and flip. Cook the other side for about 45 to 60 seconds. The bread should be nice & crusty and have dark (but not burnt) marks. Top with a drizzle of olive oil, raw garlic, and parsley. Enjoy!
