Homemade Cheesy Herb Stuffed Naan Recipe

Exactly when you figured hand crafted naan couldn’t beat that, I felt free to stuff it with cheddar… and spinach. Also, even some garlic and herbs as well.

I’m certain you’re all mindful, yet I’m somewhat fixated on my hand crafted naan formula. It’s been a go-to formula for me since the day I initially made it, eight years prior at this point. Stunning, that is insane to try and compose. Eight years is so long. It’s crazy to think back and perceive how far HBH has come in that time. It’s additionally insane to take a gander at the amount I’ve developed. I’m a totally unexpected individual in comparison to I was eight years back. Be that as it may, one thing that is certainly continued as before… my affection for naan. It’s one of my preferred plans.

Furthermore, yours as well! Right up ’til the present time our naan formula is reliably in our top most well known plans ever. It’s really delectable…

Cheesy Herb Stuffed Naan: extra soft, doughy, chewy, and stuffed with melty cheese, spinach, and herbs.


  • 1/4 cup warm water

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 3/4 teaspoon active dry yeast (optional see note)

  • 3/4 cup warm whole milk

  • 1 cup full fat plain greek yogurt

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 8 ounces frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded dry mozzarella cheese

  • 8 ounces feta cheese, crumbled

  • 1 cup tender mixed herbs (such as basil, cilantro, chives, and/or dill)

  • 1-2 cloves garlic, grated

  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes

  • 6 tablespoons (4 + 2 ) salted butter, melted

  • honey, for serving (optional)


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the water, honey, and yeast. Let sit for 5-10 minutes or until the mixture begins to bubble on top.
  • Add the milk, yogurt, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using the dough hook, mix until the flour is completely incorporated, about 2-4 minutes. The dough should be sticky. Dust lightly with flour and knead the dough into a ball using your hands. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let sit in a warm place for 1 hour, until doubled in size. If not using right away, cover overnight in the fridge.
  • To make the filling. In a bowl, combine the spinach, herbs, mozzarella, feta, garlic, and a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes.
  • When ready to cook divide the dough into 8 equal balls. Flatten each ball out into a round. Add about 3 tablespoons of the cheese mixture to the center. Fold up the dough around the cheese, pinching to seal it in. Using a rolling pin, roll each piece of dough into a large oval, about 5-6 inches long, and 1/2-inch thick. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  • Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, you want the pan screaming hot. Brush both sides of the naan with 4 tablespoons of melted butter. Drizzle the skillet with a teaspoon of olive oil, then carefully use a paper towel to wipe the oil around the skillet. Place the naan on the hot skillet, immediately cover with a lid and cook for 1 minute, bubbles will form. Flip and cook, uncovered for another 1-2 minutes, until large toasted spots appear on the underside. Remove from the skillet and wrap in a clean kitchen towel. Repeat with the rest of the naan, keeping them wrapped in a towel while you work.
  • Brush 2 tablespoons melted butter over the warm naan and serve. These are best served warm, right off the skillet, but leftovers are still delicious. Keep stored in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
