I love carbs. This we know. So it probably isn’t surprising that I tend to judge an Indian meal on the naan. And the store bought stuff I mostly find…. uninspiring. I like a fluffy buttery delicious bread, with fun bubbles and slightly crispy in spots. I have not found this in any I have purchased.
So I set off to make my own and it is surprisingly easy. And fun! Though this is not classic and if you are a purist look away. I use a cast iron skillet to get the bubbles. I don’t own a tandoor. Sorry.
I would recommend making some even if you have no interest in Indian food. (Though if you do have interest in homemade indian food be sure to check back next weekend!) I have heard some people rave about how good pizza made with a naan crust is. And really it would make a great accompaniment to any saucy dinner.
