I completely understand the longing for rotis and naans while following a Keto diet. They are such a staple in Indian cuisine and complement the rich curries and butter chicken so perfectly. But fret not, because today I have a recipe that will surely bring a smile to your face.
Introducing my Keto version of Garlic Butter Naan, a delightful and gluten-free alternative to traditional Indian rotis. This recipe is specially crafted to cater to your Keto lifestyle and Indian Keto recipes, while satisfying your cravings for that familiar naan bread texture and flavor.
Creating the perfect Keto naan took a bit of experimentation, but I finally found the winning combination of flours and ingredients. In this recipe, instead of using almond flour for easy naan bread recipe, we will be using coconut flour. Coconut flour is not only low in carbs, but also adds a subtle hint of sweetness and nutty flavor to the naan.
The star of the show is undoubtedly the garlic and butter. Infusing the naan with the aromatic flavors of garlic and the richness of butter takes it to a whole new level. With every bite, you’ll experience the heavenly combination of soft, fluffy naan and the savory essence of garlic and butter.
Whether you’re serving it alongside:
or enjoying it on its own, this Keto Garlic Butter Naan is sure to impress. The best part is, it’s made with Keto-friendly ingredients, so you can indulge without guilt.
It is thick, fluffy, and tastes buttery delicious, without all the carbs! The best thing is that this recipe needs no rest time, no heavy kneading, and no fancy kitchen mixers. Check out the easy recipe below.

Naan in parts of the Indian subcontinent usually refers to a specific kind of thick flatbread. Generally, it is usually leavened with yeast or with bread starter (leavened naan dough left over from a previous batch); unleavened dough (similar to that used for roti) is also used. Naan, similar to some other breads of South Asian cuisine, is cooked in a tandoor, from which tandoori cooking takes its name. This distinguishes it from roti, which is usually cooked on a tava, which is a flat (or slightly concaved) pan — Wikipedia.
