How to Bake Naan Bread
Posted By Crystal Collins On October 9, 2012 @ 2:35 pm In Frugal Living,Home and Garden | 7 Comments
Like everyone else who’s tried it, I absolutely love the Naan, Indian flatbread sold in two-packs at the grocery store for a ridiculous price. So when I made Naan Bread at home with four ingredients in a rather short time, I felt very cheated. (But also very glad that I never will be again!) Here’s how to bake Naan Bread yourself:
Quick and easy recipe to Bake Your Own Naan Bread
Add one or more of these spices to your dough: chopped garlic, fennel, cumin, coriander, cloves. (The peppercorn or rosemary on sale at Mountain Rose Herbs may be good!)
Use as a base for pizza and cover it in your favorite toppings.
If your naan ends up thicker, and a bit chewier, it tastes very much like the frybread served at Native American powwows (but is a bit easier to make). Top with chili beans (or this delicious homemade chili), cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and onions for an “Indian taco”. Or turn it into a dessert bread with honey and cinnamon. For these, I would recommend that when you go to flatten the dough, keep it at least 1/2 inch thick.
Make sandwiches or hamburgers with naan instead of loaf bread or buns.
How do you enjoy naan best?
