Have You Tried…Naan Bread?

Posted by Brette in Food | Have You Tried?

Naan bread is very familiar to people who enjoy Indian food. I admit I am not a big Indian food fan. I don’t know what is spicy and what isn’t, so it makes it hard for me to figure out what to order. I do love tandoori chicken, however. Naan, though, is an Indian food I just love. Naan bread is a flat bread, similar to pita bread. It is usually cooked in a tandoor oven.

My grocery store now sells naan and I’ve been buying lots of it. I really love it for making pizzas. The bread is just thick enough that it works quite well (I find tortillas and pitas to just not give me the consistency I want). I like the whole wheat variety. My son likes the white variety and eats it plain, with nothing on it.  It’s great with dip or to make an open face sandwich you’re going to eat with a knife and fork. Have you tried it?

  • Curry is a BIG thing in the UK, so there are lots of different varieties of naan to be had in the supermarket. If you see the one with almonds and raisins in it, I urge you to purchase it, as it is really good. We often have this with curry and just bake it and then put some butter on it. Brette, you now have me thinking about curry!

    Have a great weekend. I hope you enjoy my Martha Mondays pick.

  • We love naan here too! I get it from Whole Foods, both white and wheat. They have garlic too but I haven’t tried it. We use it to scoop up our hummus. If I’m serving Indian food I usually go the extra mile and make naan because it’s so much better fresh 🙂
