Naan-Shirmal by @hodaskitchensd on Instagram 

Naan-Shirmal is a traditional mildly sweet flatbread in Iran.

Naan means bread and Shir means milk in Persian. Because the dough is kneaded (mal) with milk instead of water, Shirmal means bread kneaded with milk.

Naan-Shirmal is popular in Iran, India, Pakistan.


1 Cup Warm Milk

1 large Egg

100g Melted Butter

1 tablespoon Yeast

1/2 Cup Sugar

1/2 teaspoon Salt

3 Cups plain flour

Sesame seeds

Black Cumin Seed


In a large bowl mix milk, egg, melted butter and sugar. Then add yeast and flour, rest the dough for 1 hour. Then spread the dough, cover and rest for other 20 minutes. Make the Naan shape as the video shows and spread egg yolk, bake at 320°F (160°) for 25 minutes.
