  • 400g gluten-free self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting (we used Doves)
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds, toasted
  • 300ml natural yogurt


  1. Heat the grill to medium and dust a baking sheet with a little flour. Mix the flour and cumin seeds in a bowl, then season. Stir in the yogurt and 100ml water, then mix well to form a soft dough.

  2. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces, then shape into circles or ovals about ½cm thick. Dust lightly with a little flour. Grill on the baking sheet for 3-5 mins on each side until golden and puffed. Serve warm.

So glad I found these! They are so quick and easy and you can use any flavor you want. Perfect for any meal that requires something for dipping or even just with a bit of cheese and chutney for lunch.

The dough is sticky (even though I don't add all the water) but if you use a spoon to transfer portions to a floured non-stick tray it works fine. Then just put some flour on your fingers and flatten down the portions to the desired thickness.

I have tried with cumin seeds and also with onion seeds. My next attempt will be to see if I can make a cheesy garlic bread with them. Certainly the best, quickest and easiest gluten free bread I have found.

One of my favourite gf recipes I have stumbled across. I've actually used the mix to make a sort of pide, rolling out and filling it with feta and spinach then sealing it like a pastie. Yum

These turned out great. I used plain gf flour with baking powder. I didn't measure the water - just added as much as I felt it needed. Can't wait to experiment with more flavours.

Amazing! So easy and so delicious! Made them for one friend who can't eat gluten but all the gluten eaters finished them off too! I normally think gluten-free products taste like dust but I would definitely make these again any time, yum.

This is my first wheat free baking and I'm so impressed! I used rice flour with a bit of baking powder, it didn't puff up that much but was very tasty- will definitely play around and make this again :)

I added the water as the recipe said. The mixture was too sticky and I had to add more flour. Agree with the last post. Just add the water a bit at a time until it looks right.
Tasted fab! Am going to try with garlic and coriander. Will never buy bought naan again...

Just done this - really tasty. Used fennel and black onion seeds as didn't have cumin seeds to hand. Just added enough water for it to hold together. Also added garlic, and a bit of salt and sugar. Smokes when cooking so watch out for the fire alarm! Had it with some chutney and pickled chilli garlic - very filling.

I'm new to a gluten free diet and I've never baked in my life. Even I found this recipe incredibly easy and yummy! Crunchy on the outside, soft and doughy on the inside and a much better texture than the gluten free bread you find in shops! I will be making these again for sure.

The dough was extremely sticky using the specified quantities so I added a couple more tablespoons of flour and it was perfect. I used a fan assisted grill at 220C and they came out well - nice and crunchy on the outside and softer inside. The cumin seeds add a lovely flavour. I'll use the dough base again and experiment with other herbs/spices next time. This is such a quick and easy gf recipe, I love it!

Burned on outside, uncooked in middle, and despite copious amounts of flour on baking tray, they stuck and peeled off the non-stick surface when trying to turn them over, despite the dough not being sticky. Very disappointing.

Quick & easy! Had to use Greek yoghurt as no natural in house but everyone loved the taste.

Delicious flatbreads that are perfect for eating with curry! Reduce the water content if you prefer a crispier dough.

I used doves farm gluten free white bread flour and they turned out light and fluffy. I also omitted the cumin seeds and added 1 tsp onion powder and 1 tsp garlic granules. Tonight I am making the same recipe as pizza bases. The children loved these.

OMG!! These are just SOOOOO good. I hadn't cumin seeds (was going to use ground but thought the better of it!) so I used fennel seeds instead. These are by far the nicest bread I've eaten since I had to give up wheat three years ago. So much nicer that shop-bought. I find it difficult to find ready made products cos I have an intolerance to wheat not gluten and I find so many products are made of "deglutinised" wheat now and I'm afraid to chance them. I like travelbunny's idea of doubling the seeds and will try argosdiva's sweet recipe. Not too sure about having with jam for breakfast, maybe just a little butter... Finally: glutenfreechick: I put these on a well-floured baking tray and grilled at around 190 in my fan assisted grill.

I just seem to be sensitive to gluten, I get a bloated tummy and feel not really well, so Im exprementing ! thanks so much. val.

I have to avoid all dairy and gluten - so substituted the yogurt with a dairy free version. They were delicious, easy to make and such a good alternative to shop-bought gluten free varieties of bread.

These are excellent. I make them all the time. If they are a bit sticky just add more flour until you get a consistency you are happy with. These are also really nice toasted the next day.

We don't have access to a grill. Has anyone made these in the oven or in a pan instead? Any temperature recommendation or tips?
