Keto Naan | Tortilla | Wrap | Roti | Low-Carb Flatbread
Lately, I’ve been craving some delicious flatbread. So I thought, why not write a keto naan bread recipe for those who are like me and want it back in the diet every now and again?
The Quest For the Elusive Keto Naan
Most Indian food can easily be ‘ketofied’ and adapted to suit our macros. However, for any Indian the biggest void in their dietary heart is the lack of any carbs in the form of roti, naan or paratha, that normally accompanies a curry. Indian flatbreads are much like tortillas, but made out of whole wheat flour. These are great for mopping up curries and gravies and, to be honest, most of us Indians would be lost without it. Eating just curry alone (without traditional naan bread) is pretty much unheard of in India. A low-carb flatbread is the need of the hour.
Unfortunately, keto-friendly flours don’t quite work the same way our glutinous friends maida (all purpose flour) and atta (whole wheat flour). So we must adapt and bring in new ingredients to the table to achieve similar results. Of course, this recipe could easily be repurposed to make a low carb tortilla, or a keto wrap that you can stuff with veggies and meat of your choice – this flatbread is your playground!

Replace Traditional Flour, Use Coconut Flour in Low Carb Tortilla
Coconut flour, unlike almond flour, absorbs a lot more liquid, but gives you a pancake that’s closer to that flatbread feel. This coconut flour tortilla doubles up as a naan, a paratha and a keto uttapam. Yes, it does have a coconutty taste, but it is versatile enough that you can stuff it with a filling of your choice or use it as the perfect vehicle for your butter chicken. One thing to note: the psyllium husk in this recipe is absolutely essential. On its own, the coconut flour doesn’t quite hold up, but just add in that psyllium husk and it suddenly has structure and can hold up like any flatbread would. You can bake this or fry it, you can even use it as a keto pizza base (though it won’t get crispy). You can also roll it out thinner and use it as a tortilla—the possibilities are endless.
Getting Your Hands on Coconut Flour
For a lot of folks living in India, coconut flour is an expensive option and not easily available. (To be fair, though, a lot of brands now retail on Amazon.) This might be the case in your country as well. In this case, you can make do with desiccated coconut, which will give you a coarser pancake. However, there is no replacement for the psyllium husk, which is what binds the entire thing together.
Another important thing to note is the temperature of the water. If it’s not warm, it won’t hold together.
So, are you ready to try this low carb flatbread? Unleash your creativity with this keto flatbread and get ready to satisfy that carb craving without actually taking in all of those carbs. In the future, you might even venture to make garlic naan bread if you’re feeling up for a kick of flavor. Don’t forget to click here for my Chicken Keto Tortilla Filling as well. Especially if you’re looking for something to go with your keto naan flatbread. So, grab a large mixing bowl, a rolling pin, and your main ingredients—and you’re ready to go!

I have made this in the past and loved it. I just decided to make it and try as a pizza base and it was AMAZING!!! It’s so easy to make, this will definitely be a staple!!
Very glad to hear that 🙂
What about adding Besan (chickpea flour) to the coconut flour
It’s not keto friendly.
Exactly. 16g carb is a no go.
I have psyllium whole husks. Can I use this?
Yes those should work.
you recommended http://www.ruled.me for Keto but also saying Besan is not allowed, however that website recommends use of chickpea flour on Keto. So confusing.
See there are many variations of Keto and many people allow themselves lots of things. In my books the way Indian people use besan it’s to be avoided. At least if your goal is to lose weight. Now if you’ve lost weight and you are just maintaining then you can find a way to add besan into your life if you want it. Most of these things have to do with why you are doing Keto and what is your goal. Now here is the thing. 100grams of besan has about 50 carbs. You decide if it fits into your life. If you use 10grams in some dish that’s only 5g of carbs. But if you use 100grams of it and make pakoda and eat it then it’s not the same thing. So unless you get a personal dietitian or nutritionist the only person you are accountable to is yourself. 🙂 Hopefully this has given you some clarity.
Can I use xantan gum instead of physlium
I’ve never tried it but you can give it a go and let me know if it works.
Tried these tonight and they were great! I will definitely take some of the other suggestions to add other spices or garlic. I read that the texture is more spongy (which did take me by surprise). I noticed that when I cooked them, unlike your video, the dough puffed up a lot and didn’t know if that was normal
Hello I have combined chick pea flour with psyllium husk and made roti which turned out great . Is this good for keto?
No chick pea flour for Keto.
Says who? Keto is made to fit the user, not the other way around. What is good for one, may not be good for another and visa versa. You don’t have the authority to say what is or is not keto.
Ok. You do you!
CALEAN ketosis is achieved by limiting carbohydrates to under 30g a day. Chick pea flour is way too high in carbs to be able to achieve this, unless you’re using tiny amounts. This is science, not Sahil claiming to be an authority.
Keto is low carb so then it’s definitely not keto.
Chickpea flour is NOT keto. You will never see keto recipes using chickpea flour. The carbs are too high. If you have a diabetic something made with chickpea flour, your could be putting them in danger.
Chick peas aren’t keto. Fact. If you don’t want the advice don’t ask or be so rude!
Please do some research. You may be new to keto, but it’s often used for managing serious medical conditions like epilepsy, cancer, diabetes outside of weight loss. Putting misinformation out there for someone who has just begun keto for medical reasons or is cooking for someone with these conditions is harmful.
Love the new website. Enjoy watching your videos and making your recipes. Keep it up!
People will find anything to fight about. Love love love the answer “ ok you do you” love the keto cooking Sahil
I made this tonight, it was wonderful. I think it might have convinced my teenage daughter to try moving towards a Keto diet because “everything you guys eat is SO good”. Thank you so much for not only taking the time to work out these recipes, and share them, but make videos so they are easy to understand and entertaining to learn!
Very glad to hear that Lakey and thank you for the kind words 🙂
Have made these multiple times. Very pliable even after in refrigerator for days. Have added dried cilantro & butter after flipping to cook second side so it melts in. Sometimes use Italian seasoning for Italian wrap, or Greek flavor profiles like Oregano, dill & lemon, or Cajun & Cumin seasoning for fish, shrimp tacos…USE Imagination!
>>I use a Mexican type of cast iron 8″ Tortilla press fitted with split open gallon plastic bag to press my dough ball in, but people could use a flat bottom fry pan to press with & parchment paper options, too.
THANKYOU & really like your style…”enough jibber jabber…” !
I love the seasoning ideas, thank you!
Totally using this to make a half-moon quesadilla. <3
I want naan tonight but have no psyllium husk flour. Is there an alternate?
PS: I love your videos!
Thank you so much Cathy, sadly without the husk there is nothing to bind the mixture together. You can probably use an egg or 2 with the coconut flour and make a pancake from it.
would xanthan gum work? I know it’s not a 1:1 ratio, as generally it’s 1tsp of xanthan gum to like 2 TBSP of psyllium husk, but i just came upon this recipe and have everything except that. Do you think it would work?
Jen I have never tried it so I have no idea if it will work. You can try a test batch and see if it works but if it does then please let me know 🙂
hi! i just made them with the 1 tsp of xanthan gum instead of the psylllium husk and they came out fine! thanks so much for the recipe! this is a keeper!
i added the water in quarter cups and only needed three-quarters of the cup…
Im going to try with both the husks and the gum as the husks are much more expensive and hard to get in stores near me but the gum I can get from my local tescos. However have ordered he husks you suggested on Amazon. However the added health benefits of the husks might win me over. Thanks for this and all your other gorgeous recipes
Thanks, to those who have tested it with Xanthum Gum. I will try this out as I am allergic to psyllium.
chia seed or perhaps flax?
He said NO earlier to flax but since he said 2 eggs might work, you could probably making Chia eggs if you do not eat regular eggs. Add a little water to a teaspoon or so of Chia seeds.
Great site. Thank you.
I have some questions about keto diet would you be able to guide me.or can you recommend any dietitian for that.
Hi Sayali, you should read up everything on http://www.ruled.me – they are a great Keto resource. I do believe there is a company in Mumbai called Food Darzee that does Keto consultancy as well.
I found the dough was way too wet. Added a little more coconut flour but that didn’t help. It didn’t cook up very well, either. I ended up throwing out half of it.
I’m sorry it didn’t work out for you. What kind of husk did you use? That can make a difference as well. Was the water warm? did you watch the video and follow it exactly like that?
You likely don’t need to add the entire cup of water. I only ended up using half of it, and probably could have gotten away with slightly less than half.
Mine was the same. I couldnt even move the dough. It was wet and just fell apart. Added more flour and no change. I followed everything to the Letter. Was gutted to waste all the ingredients.
Mine didn’t work at all. They were soggy, didn’t puff up at all. Used warm water, fresh baking powder. I had to throw half out and rest just fell apart. I wonder what I did wrong ?
I tried this today and loved it. Thanks to you I can finally enjoy having curries!!
The uttapam and paneer Paratha idea is great too…will try those soon.
Hi can I freeze these or put them in the fridge for a few days . Also is there a way to make them crisp?
Yes you can do that. I guess to make it crispy you can roll it really thin and cook it really long in the oven at a low temperature.
Thank you brother for sharing this awesome recipe. Now my husband and I can enjoy guilt free curries at home. Thumbs up. Peace!
Cheers! Glad you dig the recipes.
Oh my goodness, so so good! My husband who is skeptical of anything Keto loved them. I used a tortilla press and the naan came out lovely. Loved your recipe and video, thanks! 5 stars
So glad to hear that 🙂
Do you use psyllium husk or psyllium husk powder? I have both, one is coarse and the other is finely ground.
In the recipe I’ve linked to the one I use.
Sahil, yes you did link but the package doesn’t say if it’s whole or powdered unless it didn’t translate to English.
It’s not really powdered and not really whole husks either it’s kind of in the middle.
Been eager to try this recipe after we found your channel a couple months ago. Only hold up was ordering some psyllium husk powder. WOW! Turned out great! Thanks so much for your recipes and your energy. Horns UP!
Today I tried yiour recipe ……awesome…..thanks….stay blessed
I had serious doubts about this recipe as several low carb recipes i’ve tried (from various internet sources) have been so disappointing. But this was excellent – I mean, it’s never going to be like the real thing being low carb but it was as close as you can get. Genuinely “bready” and the mild coconut flavour is perfect with curries. THANK YOU!
Glad to hear that 🙂
I’ve tried it and it tastes great with curries! I was definitely missing the normal wheat roti but this is equally good. I tried with coarser coconut but it just didn’t hold. Even added some more psyllium husk, still it crumbled and didn’t make into a roti. What could be the reason? I have powdered coconut flour but that is not easily available here and it’s about to finish so I tried with the dessicated coconut but failed:/ Any help would be appreciated.
I think you might need to add some more water if you using coarser coconut.
Maybe if you have a blender, try to blend the dessicated coconut?
Just about to try this recipe myself, hope it works!
Thank you SO much for sharing this!
I had the same question re psyllium husk vs psyllium husk powder which you didn’t really answer above. I’ve linked to what you use and the package in the image doesn’t specify. The package doesn’t say ‘powder’ so presumably it’s not? I’m dying to make these but have to buy the psyllium husk to do so. I don’t want to wait for an online order of it so please answer soon and I will buy it in the store. Looking forward to enjoying these!
Well the think is it’s not a full husk but it’s not a powder either but a powder would be a better bet I think.
I just made this tonight. Loved It!!
Stuck strictly to the recipe with measurements.
I used Psyllium Husk ( not powder ).
I got it from the health food shop – it was a lightly milled husk.
This was the first receip I have tried after finding your You Tube channel today.
Can’t wait to try more.
I made these but used what appeared to be psyllium husk powder. Turned them a dark brown color. Not a big deal. Final texture was a bit rubbery. Dough ball was rubbery as well. Had a pleasant taste but texturally it was strange. Used to it exact proportions in the video. The psyllium was vitamin shoppe brand.
Yeah it’s kind of about right. It’s not going to have a crispy texture or anything it is a bit ‘strange’ at the end of the day because it’s husk and coconut flour 😀
Hey Sahil, got the Spotify app. So I can listen to your music. How do I find you there? PS this is a great recipe. 🙂
First time poster to site, actually, to any keto site. Just wanted to add the proverbial two cents to what IMHO is the best tortilla recipe I have found anywhere on YouTube or any other blog after dozens of sites visited. I made two changes to this already fabulous recipe that transformed it from rock star to Diva status as far as my taste buds are concerned. First: I seasoned the h*ll out of the dough with dill powder, onion powder, black powder and lots of garlic salt. I was faithful to the original version the first time around but it was clear the coconut flour needed and could handle a major flavor upgrade. Secondly: for a texture enhancer, i replaced 2 tbsp of the coconut flour with 2 tbsp of oat fiber. Oat fiber is not the same as oat flour and has zero carbs thereby decreasing the overall carb count of the recipe. This alteration made the tortilla more bread like. I used a tortilla press and got eight 8-inch rounds out of the dough. I found that resting the dough for 30 min yielded the best tortillas with drier and flatter tortillas made if fried with shorter rest times. I actually saw this recipe first on another youtuber’s channel and she appropriately cited the source as HK. She modified the recipe as very thin tortillas getting an amazing 18 out of each batch! She also didn’t reference leaving the dough to sit for a few minutes before frying. I will be making double batches of these tortillas for the foreseeable future with different fillings and maybe different shapes (squares instead of rounds). Thank you Sahil for making my keto dreams come true and all of the other fabulous work you do on the HK site!!
Thank you for sharing your recipe update and also really glad you liked the recipe 🙂
Slight correction: my tortilla press is 8 inches in diameter and the eight balls I made actually produced eight 6 – 6.5 inch tortillas.
Tried it today morning and it’s bloody brilliant! I feel like I had a fantastic paratha (and we added paneer in the mix). Greatjob Sahil!.you should think about doing a AMA on the keto page on Reddit.
I’m not very good with reddit but if someone sets it up for me I will be happy to do it.
Great recipe, made them for the first time and they turned out well. Only had a little difficulty taking them of the parchment paper. Will definitely try them again.
mine arent very crispy at all – v doughy , i followed you recipe word for word!
Yes this isn’t a crispy naan/wrap. It’s a fairly spongy one.
Your recipes are amazing. You are truly the Keto Chemist, your ingredients are simple, simple understandable, simple to execute steps and phenomenal results. I mostly eat plant based, and never eat mammals, and I can easily reproduce your base recipes by simply adding fish, chicken or tofu. They are universal. A million thanks!
Thank you so much for the kind words Donna.
WOW!!! these are so delicious i am so surprised, every other ‘baked’ keto thing tastes so gross, especially with coconut flour. i love these tho! as i was happily munching down, i looked at the macros and saw 19 g carbs and freaked for a sec lol, but then saw most of that was fiber. thanks dude awesome recipes!
haha thank you for the kind words Chrissy.
Hi Sahil, For this recipe, my fitness pal is taking 19g as carbs count for 1 serving. It should be 4g. Can you fix this. The app is sending reminders that I have exceeded my carbs intake when I eat 2 serving.
I don’t know how to fix that Archana, I also use this in MFP and it doesn’t send me reminders. I have a net carb extension added so it calculates and subtracts the fiber. It’s called Tamper Monkey, it works on the desktop.
I made your paneer paratha and it turned out really well. My husband and I had fun talking about the flavor possibilities, both savory and sweet! It is becoming a once a week staple in our meals.
amazing recipe, me and hubby started keto 4 weeks ago and being an indian so used to rice and roti , this keto naan is a winner!! thank you
Good Morning Sahil! Love your site, and really enjoy watching your videos. I’m Swedish, and yet Indian food is one of my absolute favorite cusisines. I use to eat “regular” Naan bread 3X a day… but now since going KETO with my husband, I am so excited to try your Naan recipes. QUESTION – I couldn’t quite understand your recipe for “Panine Paratha” ? Is that right? What ingredients did you use for the filling? It looks amazing… and want to make it. Just not sure of the ingredients. If you could please list them. Thank you so much! What a great & kind spirit you have….. I will keep watching. :). Sonja
Hi there !
Recipe looks awsum
Can i use almond flour instead of coconut flour ?
Not for this recipe. It will fall apart. I would suggest you use the keto dosa recipe instead.
Thanks for ur prompt response .actually i only have almond flour and want to get a roti or paratha to eat with saalan 🙁 . Kindly give me a recipe of it before i get bored of eating tikkas and stuff 🙁
I just made these and they came up pretty good,but I added fresh garlic to the dough to get rid of the coconut taste a bit and next time I’ll add salt as all. Thanks.
Made these last night and they were AMAZING!!!Followed the recipe to a T and had no issues being wet ,nor dry.A big THANK YOU!!!!
Are the carbs details i.e 19g for 1 Naan/roti or for 4 nans?
It says per serving which means 19 carbs for 1 naan but please remember that 15g from that 19 is fiber.
So net carb is only 4?
Yes that is correct.
Can I use cheese in place of psyllium husk???
You can try 🙂
Greetings from the United States! I made these today and, wow, they’re great! This was the first time in a month that I’ve eaten something I consider to be real bread and I really savored it. The coconut flour has a taste I need to adjust to (not something I ever cooked with until now) but this recipe definitely will be a staple in my low-carb lifestyle. I cannot wait for the hubby to try it later with his dinner. I think it’d also be great used in a breakfast sandwich or many other ways. Thanks so much for your awesome recipes and videos!
Oh Man!! WE make these allll the time. I make 8 out of the single recipe rather than 4 and roll out very thin. We use them as Hot dog wraps, sandwich wraps, fill them with sausage or bacon, egg/cheese for breakfast, you name it, we have done it. I also cook them up, cool them, and put them in a a single long layer of freezer paper, roll them up, and freeze them in the roll so when we pull them out, they come out of the roll one at a time! We were so thrilled to find this recipe from you and just had to tell you. Thank you so much!
OH, and yes, I add extra spices depending upon what we are using them for….go crazy. Galic/cumin/chili powder..or galic powder/parsley,….They even taste good thicker for pancake rolls with cinnamon and a bit of vanilla before mixing for tortilla! Our grands love them, too. sorry, guess you can tell we love them.
I am Pakistani by heritage but grew up in the US. I never even made a naan/paratha until I started doing keto 6 months ago. And in fact, YOUR recipes are the first desi food I’ve ever made (luckily I live around a lot of family and near enough desi restaurants that I never had to learn to cook!) Thanks so much for this recipe and your site, it has been very helpful. As a kid I never wanted to eat desi food and now that I have children of my own, I find I want it all the time. And your videos go a long way in keeping me satisfied and committed to keto. Kudos.
Thank you Farin, glad to hear that. I didn’t care much about cooking desi food till I had to feed my international guests on my show and then I really started to love cooking it.
Thank you! South African living in London… always loved curry and it is so satisfying to be able to do keto and still eat favourite dishes! This naan came out amazing and loved by my non-keto friends too!!
Really glad to hear that!! We’re planning a Keto meet up in London next month.
You’re the freakin’ MAN!! I just made these this morning, using Kerrygold instead of ghee, (although I do have organic, grassfed ghee) and they’re AMAZING!! Sturdy, flexible and delicious!!
Hi, I want to make the recipe but I can not find the
Psyillium Husk, It can be substituted by another ingredient and what would it be? The recipe is easy to do.
It will fall apart without the husk. I’ve added the amazon link to purchase the husk I use in the recipe box. See if you can order it.
Hi, I would love to try this recipe if I could have measurements in cups instead of grams, for the flour and husk. Otherwise I’ll have to buy a weight scale specially for this recipe.
Thank you in advance!
Buy the weight scale for general kitchen use, it’s far more accurate as cup measures vary across the world. Also there is a converter in the recipe box as well.
This is awesome to find. Thank you HK! And everyone for posting your own efforts. With so many new recipes substituting coconut flour for every other commonly used flour, has anyone heard how the global coconut market is handling this dietary shift? More importantly are new coconut plantations causing additional de-forestation or accelerating the practice? What about other staple crops being abandon in favor of more acres of coconut trees for flour production?
I am working on my own keto thing just as many of you may be, one step at a time. Not trying to crash the party or throw cold water on the cooking fire, just wondering about the consequences.
At this point it’s not really that big. Most people aren’t buying up coconut flour like it’s going out of style. It’s also not super cheap and it also lasts in most people’s pantry for a long time.
Hi love your recipes, however I want to make tortillas and keto bread . can you please tell me measurements in cups, tablespoon, teaspoons. I am Canadian. I have tried to convert, unable to.
Please buy a scale, you don’t have to convert anything. Cup measures vary across the world and are WIDELY inaccurate. However if you still wish to pursue it there is a converter within the recipe box itself. Good luck!
Hi, I have just started Keto, I would like to ask you. I am an Indian, I purchased fine Desiccated coconut powder from grocery shop, can i use it instead of coconut flour
You can try it, might work. If it does, let me know.
What is the temperature of the warm water I should aim for? I don’t have a microwave but have a kettle with temperature display. Thanks!
I think about 80C should be fine.
Absolutely love all your recipes Sahil, but I think I blew this one! I thought I followed the recipe to a T (taking into account I doubled the recipe, anticipating making a big batch), but ended up having to use way more warm water than what you called for, just so I could get it to resemble dough at all. I did let the dough rest before forming and fried them, but fell apart when I flipped them.
I used as a side to my keto chicken curry I made, and it just dissolved completely. I will try again though as it’s so worth it! (I put the remainder of the batch in the fridge for tomorrow; perhaps I can salvage or somehow “fix” any of the leftover dough?)
Thanks for all you do!
Have been following your keto vegetarian recipes and they all taste amazing.
I just want you to know that even almond flour works for keto Naan. We have tried it and it turned out to be good.
Hey thank you! that’s good to know. I will try one myself soon. Did you use the same amount of almond flour as coconut flour? or more? or less?
Yes that would be a good info.
Thanks for this brilliant recipe, which I just discovered today and immediately made. I used a US cup measure and found that it was pretty much perfect with 1/2 cup coconut flour to 1 cup water (after all, the proportions of dry to liquid ingredients are more important than which measurement system you use). I did end up adding a bit more water for the perfect consistency, though. I also used a US measuring spoon for the psyllium and baking powder. What I can recommend to anybody who has one is to use a tortilla press to make the flatbreads. They came out almost perfectly round, whereas with a rolling pin they ended up long and wonky looking, so I had to roll them back into balls and start again.
Howdy, just wondering if these could use hemp flour instead? obviously would require more than coconut flour, but given hemp flour now becomming more mainstream too, might be an option
I have no idea honestly because I don’t get it in India and I’ve never tried it.
Have tried some of your recipes and they all have been a hit. Thank you so much for creating short, easy and perfect keto recipes. God bless you!
Tried it with 8grams of physillum husk powder as in the written recipe on here and it turned out way too sticky, wet and wasn’t binding. Looked at the YouTube video again and you say 2 tbsp of physillum husk. When I googled how many grams that is, its 30 grams! Huge difference in your video and what is written. Take 2 with the 30grams of psyllium husk turned out great. So glad I persevered with this one. Thanks for the recipe but I definitely think you should update your written recipe with more accurate measurements.
The main issue Rabia is what brand of husk you are using. I will double check next time I make this but I generally weigh everything while I work and put those down.
Can we replace psyllium husk with xanthum gum? If so, is it the same quantity?
I have no idea about this, will have to experiment and see but definitely not the same amount. much lesser xanthan gum
What is in the paratha ?
Paneer. It’s an Indian fresh cheese.
Just brilliant! So happy to find a keto tortilla that actually wraps and behaves like a proper flatbread without hardening up like a board when it cools (looking at you, fathead dough). I read through all the comments before setting out, added some spices, wrapped and rested the dough 30 minutes before dividing and rolling. I have a kitchen scale, so I weighed out the flour and psyllium instead of tablespooning. 7″ rounds seems about the thinnest they can go without too much mishap on the way to the pan. Nonstick skillet with a dab of olive oil worked just fine. The flavor was most reminiscent to me of whole wheat/multigrain tortillas. Sandwich wraps are back on the menu now…yippee!
Hi Can i use mozzarella cheese in there while making dough. I saw few recipes saying fat dough with mozzarella cheese
Yes, you are looking for FATHEAD dough which is there on my website as well.
loved it! I am in Pakistan and its tough to find some ingredients for western keto recipes! I made it at the luxury of finding all ingredients at home! Thankyou.
Hi Sahil, can’t thank you enough for this! Quick question – I added the recipe on MyFitnessPal and it shows 4.7g of carbs and 3.6g of fiber per 1 piece of naan. Can you please verify if this is correct? Thanks again.
Just read the post above, it clearly says 4 grams per naan. There must be some error in the ingredients you picked. But you can just edit it till you find the ingredients reach a similar macro to what I’ve written.
Thank you for an amazing recipe. Been doing keto for a couple of months now, starting to get inventive with my cooking now as keto has made me feel incredible! Just a quick question regarding the recipe though. It says 4g net carbs, however, there are no carbs present in the recipe apart from the very small amount in the baking powder. My husk is 0g, flour has very high fibre so no net carbs, none in the oil or butter either. So aren’t these essentially carb free?
Hey there the coconut flour has carbs. A large % of those carbs are fiber but there are some which are not.

Please will you experiment and come up with home-made coconut flour!
I’ve had a go – but extracted too much oil and so was left with coconut fibre powder. I guess it’s a matter of timing to remove enough fat to roughly replicate the commercial coconut flours.
I’ve only just started cooking with low carb flours and so I don’t yet have an instinctive feel for this ingredient. And besides I’d have to eat my attempts which kind of defeats the object.
I’ve made coconut oil in the past – but I was living in a land of coconuts and didn’t have to use desiccated coconut which is the cheapest option here in London.
PS – this is today’s, lunch for friends, to give them a taste of South India, and to make space in my freezer for my keto-creations: idli (frozen fermented batter which has revived nicely – my idlis are the lightest in London – lift you eyes and you’ll see them floating past***), sambhar, overgrown courgette and pepper curry with home made sambar powder and coconut oil, home-made idli pudi with lots of ghee

Do remove that – I didn’t know it would go public immediately!
This one was killer! Ate it with your palak paneer recipe and it was heaven!!
Thanks for your recipes Sahil! Tried making the naan and it turned out amazing, it makes life so much better. I was really missing rotis and this works justfine.
Made these and they’re amazing!! My search for a Keto Flatbread is over. Thank you so much for this recipe!!!
This was delicious as a flatbread with spinach and eggs on top. I’m also happy that its vegan so my daughter can enjoy it too. Thank you for sharing 🙂
It great and comforting to know I can make eggless garlic naan! But I think I’m keto max permissible carbs is 10g per meal.
This one has 19g. Didn’t realize coconut flour is high in carbs as compared to Almond flour! Any comments on how to make
It 10g? Would adding shredded cheese help?
Most of it is fiber, it’s only 4 net carbs per naan.
I’m the guy from Iran who wasn’t sure what psyllium husk is. as you answered me in another post, I grinded the psyllium husk seeds I had, then added the rest of recipe, it did become some sort of dough, but when I fried it in pan, the crust became good, but the inside remained like dough, even though I kept it on hot pan for 5 mins or so. I don’t know what is the problem, the husk, the flour… how can I know?
I’m not sure bro.
so I found out what was the problem, so, I thought I should tell you.
what I was using, wasn’t psyllium husk. it was psyllium seed. apparently two things comes out of plant, the seed and the husk, in Iran they don’t harvest husk, only seeds.
I did manage to fine 1 company (in entire country!) which imports husk for medical use. they actually import it from India, a company named Apex. I wonder if you know it.
anyway, I have this question. I thought it’s good to ask you, how much psyllium husk one should take per day? u know, I read it was up to 1 tbsp (or 16 grams) 3 times per day, but I found this pizza crust recipe from keto connect which used half a cup, or 4 tbsp of psyllium husk. so, when u use it inside a recipe, is it still 3 tbsp per day?
I’m not sure what that filling was that you used on the 2nd naan. I couldn’t see it referenced anywhere. I’m unfamiliar with this kind of cuisine. Sorry if I missed it listed somewhere.
It’s Paneer an Indian fresh cheese. I have a recipe on how to make it here: https://headbangerskitchen.com/recipe/keto-paneer/
How do you store the naan? I made a lot of them today, but realized I’m not sure wether to store them on the counter in a ziplock, in the fridge or freezer.
All the best! Thanks !
Looking for same answer – how long do they last in fridge and can they be frozen? Just discovered this last night and they were amazing my boys ate them all so I want to make a bigger batch to have on hand.
They will freeze for months and last for 10 days at least in the fridge.
I was able to substitute almond flour, I had no problems. The dough came out nice and chewy.
I need to practice the cooking a little bit, but I sure loved eating a bacon avocado naan. Thank you for this recipe.
I just made these and I’m so glad I did. I was happily surprised that it didn’t have a overpowering coconut flavor. Thanks so much for sharing your recipes. I plan on trying all kinds of things with them. A staple for sure. Oh yeah I just ate one by itself and the other I wrapped it around a sausage link. The other 2 are waiting for me tomorrow. Lol
Thanks for another great recipe! We love the recipe as written with butter chicken but after reading the comments I’m also excited to try it with some spice and garlic additions.
Love this although not too often as the carbs are rather high but a curry without some kind of naan is difficult for me so it gives an option – thank you.
Thought I should mention that anytime I have tried to use the link to log anything in myfitnesspal although the link carries through when I try to then add to my diary (log it) it has never worked, just get a red box asking to try again later but later never comes.
Is it possible to use this dough to make a keto pizza pocket in the fry pan? Or like, a calzone or something? Basically I have a filling idea and have been looking for a dough to “fill” and this seems pretty good, would it work? How should I go about it if you think it would?
For a calzone I would use the fathead dough.
Excellent recipe! Not only does it make a great flatbread to dip in soupy curries or pair with flavorful vegetables like bitter melon, I recently adapted it to make keto okonomiyaki – layered with cabbage, beef bacon, shiratake, shrimp, and egg and topped with bonito, green onion, mayo, and a savory modified ketchup for the sauce. It was deeeeelicious! 🙂
These are great
If you make them one at a time and put each of them in the oven while you make successive ones I find the sponginess of the bread is reduced which I prefer
A tsp of whole jeera takes away the coconut taste too
Thanks Pradeep. Glad to have your additional tips, will help others too.
I’ve been making this recipe for months now. I love it!! I’ve added cheese or many other spices depending on my mood & it’s always awesome. Thank you for such a great recipe!
Hi Sahil! Thanks for the recipe! My rotis come out spongy . Perhaps I’m not rolling it thin enough. Any suggestions to make it taste more like roti ?
They are quite spongy. That’s just the nature of the beast.
What an easy, versatile and amazing recipe! Love It! Made it twice in one day already!
Also, I was told that paneer is not keto since it still retains all the lactose from the milk it was made out of. Milk is definitely not keto or low carb. Could you clarify? I’d love to be able to serve paneer to my hubby (I can’t eat dairy due to sensitivity).
I really enjoy your YouTube Videos! Thanks for doing what you do. 🙂
Paneer is super Keto friendly. Go for it.
Dough keeps falling apart on me. Any ideas!
Are you skipping the psyllium husk?
Please tell me what i can use instead of parchament paper?or any other idea how to roll naan properly?thanks
You can try and wet your hands and use them to shape but but parchment paper is the idea thing to use. Grease proof paper, baking paper can also work.
Fantastic recipe! So many uses , pizza, wraps, tortillas, calzone etc. Thank you Sahil
Omg! I have a problem with these naan. They are way too good! I tried to make 4 (i used spinach, cheese and garlic as a filling). I was going to eat just one, have hubby eat one and then have one each for lunches. Not happening because they are in my tum now. Hubby gets to choose because he still has two! great recipe, i felt like i was actually eating something with the texture of naan. Thank you!
HAHA That’s awesome to hear! 🙂
Thank you so much Sahil for sharing these recipes. I was fed up of cauliflower rice. Tried these and am convinced that I can continue Keto without second thoughts. Love the music in the background too. Much love. Rock on ?
Bless you Sahil. I just made it and had it too as pre work out snack. Its yuuuuuuuuuummmmmmmmmmm:D…
I want to check if i can have it with Priya(Brand) Aaam/Mango ka achaar. I checked for sugars in it and found nothing. So loved it. But will this throw me out of Ketosis?
Would love to more and more of your videos. Loved everybit of it, bless you man.
hey Raji, if there is no sugar in the achaar and you are probably eating like less than a tablespoon a day it should not be any issue.
Thanks for this great recipe! The only one I’ve found that always gives me tasty (non-eggy) wraps / naan that doesn’t fall apart 🙂 (made them super thin today and used them as tacos, even my non-keto friend liked them!)
Hi, I’ve read that either Xanthan Gum or Gelatin is a better binder than Psyllium Husk Powder. Can they be used as substitutes in this recipe?
I’ve used neither but you can definitely try and let me know if it works.
I wish you had stated the actually measure of water instead of using ‘cups’. British and US cups are different. I trusted to British and Indian ties and went with the British cup and my Naan was perfect. I am going to try some flavours next and also, I should make them thinner. The kids ate the lot. Result! Thank you so much for your hard work.
I know that’s why I generally avoid cup measures.
I’m excited to try this recipe! Can anyone tell me if they used psyllium husk powder or whole husks? I followed the link in the recipe and it says husks, but then there seems to be debate amongst those who have bought as to if it’s powder or not. I have powder on hand… Thanks!
I’ve linked the exact brand that I use in the recipe box next to the ingredient. Have a look at that.
can you freeze these?
You have so many fantastic recepies to follow – I’m so grateful. 🙂
Yes you can freeze them Julia and thank you for the kind words.
These are amazing. This is the first flatbread that is both delicious and easy to make. You can whip these up in minutes. I made some with Butter Chicken and they were perfect.
I just tried a decidely non-Indian version, stuffing it with ham and swiss cheese making a Croque-monsieur. Outrageously good. The most “non-keto” tasting keto thing I’ve eaten.
I made these last night. I added some grated cheese and Italian mixed herbs to the dough and cooked them in salted butter. They were amazing. They even satisfied my love for bread, which I haven’t had in months. There are so many ways you can get creative with this recipe!
Thank you, this and many others of your recipes are making my keto experience so much better and easier! I’m eating better and tastier food than I was before I was on keto. You, sir, are a legend.
Have you tried it as cauliflower paratha using ‘cauliflower rice’. Curious to know and learn from collective wisdom!
I haven’t tried yet but I have made burger buns so I guess if you make it bigger it will be a paratha but it will be quite thick.
I don’t think you have a single clue, how much you & your recipes, your Wife, your Father, your Brother… your entire Family affair, have changed my health!
Of all the things I miss from “my old life”, it’s the flatbreads, pitas & naans! (Although I live in the Western society, I never liked “loaf bread” much.) To be able to just pop onto your site, whichever app I happen to have open… and find whatever I have a craving for – I LOVE THAT!
The annoying lady from Australia.
Thank you so much Amanda. I’m very glad to hear that 🙂
I used psycillum powder in mine & they turned out lovely. The problem is mine, not your recipe though, I really dislike coconut & just could not get past the taste. I’ll try some strong herbs , maybe that will help. I love your show & your presentation.
Can you do something to stop the ads covering your recipe.
I tried making this with xanthan gum. It didn’t work at all. The outside got crisp and browned but the dough on the inside would not cook. It was too moist and soft like dough. I think I made the mistake of using all the water?
Maybe try cooking it longer on a lower temp?
I tried making these and followed everything in the recipe but the naan was too crumbly. I even tried adding extra water and psycillium husk but it didn’t do the trick. They’re still delicious though.
Any tips on how to make these more solid and bread-like in structure? Thanks!
Hey so if it’s crumbling just add some more water, don’t add more husk because that also absorbs the moisture. So you can try that.
Hi I m from Pakistan and I have been following u since few months, It’s been a month or so I hv started keto diet and I m eating all ur recipes blv me they r so gooood that I enjoy eating with my family my husband n kids love it so much, I tried ur keto Naan, chicken makhni, Anda masala and keto qeema they turned out so delicious and I m so thankful to for sharing such yummy and quick recipes. I m not calculating the macros as I seriously don’t get that but whatever I m eating the good thing is I m loosing on scale and inches as well Alhumdulillah?
that is great to hear! wish you all the best!
These US measurements seems quite difficult..am I missing something? I’d really like to try some of your recipes but use standard measuring devises.
Susan that’s some auto converter. Like I tell everyone who watches my videos or visits the website, please do buy a kitchen scale. It’s cheap, reliable, accurate and a friend for life. You can switch between many different measurements on it as well. So whether it’s grams or oz you are sorted. Please do pick up one and I promise you won’t regret it.
These are pretty darn tasty! I used my tortilla press to make some tortillas with and they are great!!
Hi I tried your recipe last night and thought it was easy which was great. However for some reason it tasted quite spongy/chewy/soggy and didn’t seem to harden up. Have you got any advice on what I could do to prevent.this?
Thanks in advance!
Yeah that’s the texture kind of it does not harden up.
Thanks so much for this, I want to try tomorrow. Please can you do me favour and give me the quantity of water in millilitres please?
About 200ml should be fine, you might need 10-20ml more if it feels a bit dry
Thanks for this delicious recipe, Sahil. I tried enriching it slightly for naan by adding melted butter to the mix. It worked really well. Adding black onion seeds made it smell really fab too.
This is so good! I can’t believe I’ve never made this, I’m a moron ? We had this with your creamy chicken curry from Keto Life and it was just perfect, no hassle at all, I made it exactly as written (the plain version). Will definitely make this often, thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
Love this! It is a very simple recipe which you can easily adapt with spices. Unfortunately my frying pan isn’t pretty bad, I need a new one, so it stuck to the pan even after very liberally oiling. So I tried baking the rest of the dough in the oven and that gave a better results. Thanks for this recipe!
Hi, Thank you so much for this recipe.
I was wondering if it was 12 carbs per serving or for all 4 servings
Per naan. But from that 9 is fiber which we don’t count.
I am so glad I came across your channel. You have inspired me to cook. I tried the keto dhosa and loved it. I tried the keto naan today it came out all dark brown and purply not at all like the beige color of your naans. I found the color quite off putting. Any idea what I did wrong?
Don’t worry about the colour of the naan. It’s just the husk you are using. Some of them do that. But it’s absolutely fine to eat.
What’s the Psyllium Husk that you use? I don’t want purple either.
It’s the Telephone brand psyllium husk, it’s linked beside the ingredients I think.
I don’t have a scale yet- I don’t want or wait to try the recipe. What is the ingredient measurements in cups or measuring spoons?
You can use google to convert.
I know this is an old post, but this is still my favourite keto naan recipe, and all my favourite curry recipes are also yours, keto or not. And your videos always cheer me and my girlfriend up, you have such an amazing and infectious personality. Thanks a lot dude 🙂
thank you for such kind words.
Hi please suggest a replacement for making soda and baking powder.
Nothing, just skip it.
One of the best breads I’ve tried so far. Partnered it with my own low carb tuna salad and it was perfect! Will male your Marinara sauce and tur this into pizza. Thank you for sharing this.
Hello. I was just wondering. Does using different brands than the items you recommend still work? Have you tried making it from other brands to see if it is still successful?
Thank you, love the channel!
Yes the brand is irrelevant as long as it’s the same product. So as you use for example almond flour made only from almonds it doesn’t matter what the brand is because they are all just ground almonds. So no worries.
In your video how much paneer cheese did you use for your parantha. Thank you
I think I eyeballed it but about a tablespoon AT MOST because can’t fit too much in the paratha.
How are you? Please write down your recipes measurements in cups or tbsp its very easy for me i can’t calculate in grams please help
I’m not keto, but I do follow a lower carb lifestyle and my husband as well since he is diabetic. I tried this recipe for the first time today and was very pleased. Used your exact ingredient measurements. Even though I’m in the USA, I love that you used grams for measurements, so much more accurate!
I was experimenting with a brand new wooden tortilla press, I’ve never used one before, so my first two were a bit too thick and didn’t have quite the right tortilla “wrap” feel I wanted, plus they were small.
The third one, I figured out I needed to rotate it and do multiple presses, and that worked really well! Only I wasn’t careful enough peeling it off the plastic and tore it. Patched it together in the pan somewhat successfully though.
Fourth try was the best, got it nice and thin, managed to get it into the pan intact and it made a very nice wrap indeed! Tasty and not too far off a wheat tortilla. Hubby agreed.
Easy to cook, I just used medium heat, and while I did grease the pan (non-stick) lightly with butter, I’m not sure that was actually needed, though of course, it added to the flavor. It took around 2-2.5 minutes per side for a light golden brown. They looked great!
Anyway, thanks SO MUCH for the recipe, it’s brilliant! Love that it used ingredients that are easy to get and that I already had on hand! I’ll experiment with seasonings and such at a later date, but I know I’ll want to make this regularly.
We ate our tortillas with hummus (home made), cucumber, onion, bell pepper, and home-grown broccoli sprouts.
Guess I did something wrong!, 1 cup of water assuming an American cup (236~240 ml) was miles too much. Even using a little over half, it left the dough far too wet! Anyone know what I did wrong.
