This ones for all the gluten free peeps who have to miss out on the famous Dishoom bacon naan, which all my gluten eating friends rave about. After years of food FOMO I decided it was time for me to try making my own gluten free bacon naan at home and BOY was it worth it.

My gluten free bacon naan pays homage to the Dishoom original and is packed with streaky bacon, cream cheese and chilli jam. Finish with coriander or watercress (coriander in the original, watercress for me as I’m not a huge coriander fan) and this bad boy will knock your socks off. You’ll never look at a bacon sandwich in the same way again.

The obvious difference is that my recipe uses gluten free naan, but if you make them at home using my authentic gluten free naan recipe they are just as good as classic naan.

Can I Use Shop-Bought Gluten Free Naan

You absolutely can, but they tend not to fold very well and lack the pliability that my homemade gluten free naan have. If you are UK based, you can buy gluten free naan in Sainsburys and Marks & Spencer.

Which Chilli Jam Do You Use?

I use Stokes Chilli Jam, which we are a bit obsessed with. It’s the perfect balance of sweetness and gentle heat and is gluten free. If you are using a different brand remember to always check the ingredients label as some varieties are not suitable for coeliacs.

Gluten Free Bacon Naan (Dishoom Style)
Yield: Makes 2 Bacon Naans

Gluten Free Bacon Naan (Dishoom Style)

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 2 gluten free naan (try my homemade naan recipe for the best results)
  • 8 rashers streaky bacon
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese (I used Philadelphia)
  • 2 tsp chilli jam (I used Stokes)
  • Handful of fresh coriander OR watercress OR rocket (depending on which you prefer!)


  1. If you are making your naan from scratch using my authentic gluten free naan recipe, prepare the dough first and then you can pan fry them while the bacon is cooking.
  2. Preheat your oven to 180C (fan) and line a tray with non-stick baking paper, lightly spritzed with a little oil. Lay the rashers of bacon on the tray and oven cook for 15-20 minutes until crispy.
  3. Once the bacon has cooked, you can assemble your naans. Place your two gluten free naan on a board and add 1 tbsp of cream cream to each, spreading it over half of each naan (as you will be folding the naan in half). Lay four rashers of bacon on top of the cream cheese on each naan.
  4. Now add a tsp of chilli jam to the other half of each naan (see images below) and pile some watercress/coriander rocket on top of the bacon.
  5. Fold the naan over the bacon and chop each naan in half. Enjoy while still warm!
