If you’re making any type of curry, naan bread is the obvious side to choose. The bread is perfect for dipping into the sauce and soaking up all of the flavors.
Of course, naan bread works well for many other situations too. The flatness of the bread means that it can easily be used as wraps or as the base for a pizza. You could eat naan bread as a snack too, especially with the right sauce to dip it in.
Another great thing about naan bread is that keto versions aren’t too difficult to make. There are plenty of keto naan bread recipes out there and they are notably different from one another.
Differences can include areas like the low carb flour used, the specific flavors and what other ingredients are added in the mix.
All this variation should make it easy to find some recipes that you personally enjoy. Many will also include suggestions about ways that you can use the naan bread or ingredients that you can use as toppings.
Keto Naan Bread Recipes
PPS. We also have a roundup of keto flatbread recipes. This list includes some examples of naan bread, along with other styles of bread.
Keto Naan Bread
This first recipe comes from Rachel at aussieketoqueen.com. She mentions that it tastes amazing and is packed full of garlic, but it doesn’t have the same taste and texture as regular naan bread.
The taste and texture issue is true for all of the breads on this list. While some will get close to naan bread made with wheat flour, it’s always best to expect differences.
In this particular case, the naan bread relies largely on coconut flour and psyllium husk. Each serving contains just four net grams of carbs. You’re making four servings with the recipe, so there’s enough naan bread for a family.
Legit Naan (i.e. Flatbread!)
This naan bread (from gnom-gnom.com) has one notable feature – yeast. While using yeast does require some extra steps, Paola mentions that this is less complicated than using yeast for sandwich bread or something similar.
The yeast plays a key role in the finished flavor, giving you a much tastier bread than you would have otherwise. This time each naan bread just contains three net grams of carbs, making it very easy to include the bread in your diet.
Here’s a recent naan bread recipe – posted in March 2019. The recipe comes from Aaron at fatforweightloss.com.au. He says that the naan bread is very easy to prepare. You don’t need any special skills or knowledge.

Keto Naan Bread
This next recipe comes from Maya at wholesomeyum.com. It uses almond flour and can be ready to serve within 30 minutes. The cooking time makes this recipe a logical choice for busy weekday evenings when you want to get dinner on the table quickly.
A particularly good thing about this keto bread is the topping. Maya uses a butter, parsley and garlic on top of the naan bread, which would taste simply amazing.
Vegan Low Carb Naan Bread

The naan bread part of the recipe uses seven easy-to-find ingredients. There isn’t any yeast included this time, so the naan bread is fast to prepare.

Easy Low Carb Tortilla/Keto Naan Bread
You may notice that this bread is called tortillas and also naan bread. The decision isn’t surprising. Low carb flatbread, tortillas and naan bread are all very similar to one another.
Authors often call a recipe by multiple names, especially as each piece of bread can be used in many different ways. This particular version comes from milnaskitchen.com and relies mostly on coconut flour.

The garlic butter is a nice touch. It provides an intense buttery burst of garlic. You wouldn’t get the same flavors if garlic were simply included in the naan bread recipe.
Easy Keto Naan
Many of the naan breads on this list are similar to one another. This recipe, from sweetcsdesigns.com takes a slightly different approach.
The most unusual ingredient is Greek yogurt. This type of yogurt is sometimes used in keto bread recipes, but not often. The approach should create a different flavor and texture to other types of naan bread.
Keto Garlic Naan
When introducing this recipe, Ryan (from 9010nutrition.com) mentions that the naan bread doesn’t tear apart in the way that naan bread an Indian restaurant might. Even so, it pairs excellently with curries and tastes good too.
The challenge with tearing is a common one, as keto breads rarely ever behave exactly like their traditional counterparts. Regardless of how the naan tears, the recipe is an appealing one and should be easy to follow.
Naan Bread With Melted Garlic Butter
This recipe, from rushcuttershealth.com.au, is another example that relies on coconut flour. While the recipe is similar to the previous example, there are some distinct differences too.
The most obvious difference is the choice of flavors. The naan bread here uses more traditional flavors, focusing largely on garlic, with a little onion powder included as well.
Coconut Flour Naan
Speaking of interesting flavors, this recipe from thefoodievibes.com is seriously worth trying out. While the image makes the naan bread look like every other example, this isn’t the case at all.
Instead, there are some interesting flavor ingredients. These mean that the naan bread will pack a punch. You could skip some of the herbs and spices if you want to, but it would be worth trying out the recipe as written at least once.
Paleo Pita Tortilla Naan Bread
Andrea, from forestandfauna.com, has a few different names for her recipe, but you do basically end up with naan bread once again. The basic recipe here is what you might expect and uses coconut flour as one of the main ingredients.

Her post contains plenty of great images, along with clear instructions. The recipe is also perfect for feeding guests, as you’re making 12 pieces of naan bread at a time.
I love how this recipe comes from a site called ketoforindia.com. The site name suggests that the authors know what they’re talking about. You should end up with naan bread that is a perfect complement to Indian curries.
The recipe is also a little unusual, as it relies on yogurt, mozzarella cheese and almond flour. While each serving does contain six net grams of carbs, the naan bread is high in protein and in fat.
