Keto naan bread is a delicious accompaniment to curry to enjoy with your friends and family, and tastes almost identical to the original. It’s easy to make and requires very little cooking skills. If you know how to cook a pancake, you know how to make naan bread.
Firstly, let’s have a little bit of a discussion. The keto diet takes away rice…. then it takes away bread! What on earth are you supposed to eat with curry?
Well, this is where cauliflower rice and keto naan bread come in. With a little extra preparation, you’ll be able to enjoy a delicious curry from your local takeaway shop without ordering naan bread, and love every second of your decision.
I love the curry that comes from Punjabi Palace here in Brisbane. The owner is such a proud man and has photos of himself and the Indian cricket team up on the wall. I’m pretty sure he has the Australian cricket team up on the wall too, but India is always first (and they cheat less).
For some reason, I’ve always ordered chicken tikka masala. Does anyone else order the same thing? My fiance, Adele, loves to get the lamb korma, which is also good, but nothing beats a good juicy tikka masala.
From my research, tikka means small pieces of meat marinated in spices, and masala means spice mix. So translated into English, it’s literally “small pieces of meat in spice mix” curry. Kinda cool, right?
Keto Naan Bread Almond Flour
This recipe, like my keto bread roll recipe, utilizes the wonderful properties of psyllium husk powder to get the wrap-like texture that so many people love.
Coconut flour is the main ingredient within the keto naan bread, but you can always substitute this with almond flour. Instead of using 60 g coconut flour, use 90 g almond flour for a very similar texture.
Naan Without Psyllium Husk
This recipe can be easily adapted to using ground up flaxseed or chia seed as a substitute for the psyllium husk powder. I’ve used ground flaxseed and hot water to make keto wraps before and they are super delicious and just as flexible as the ones using psyllium husk powder.

Keto Naan Bread
- In a mixing bowl, combine the coconut flour with the psyllium husk powder and baking powder.
- Add the softened butter and stir until combined. Pour in the hot water and mix until the mixture is combined and the dough is able to be picked up in a large ball.
- Divide the dough into 6 balls. Between two sheets of parchment paper, roll each ball into a naan bread shape with a rolling pin.
- Heat a frying pan and add some coconut oil. Cook each naan bread until brown on each side. Serve warm or keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
