That garlic in this naan is in the dough, so there is a nice light flavor of it throughout the bread.
The ultimate temptation was this olive-onion naan from the Cooker, using this recipe from Evil Jungle Prince.
I believe traditional naan is simply kneaded with yeast and allowed to rise naturally, but here, some baker's yeast is added to speed the process along.
I’ve eaten at Curry Dreams a few times, and I always feel that their naan is the high point of the meal.
This time I made the family wait while I snapped a few photos!), so even though naan is our favorite, I did not want to make it as I wanted to challenge myself.
She didn’t give me a choice, so I don’t know what the naan is like.
I wanted a griddle baked bread since the naan was a simulated clay oven bread and I did not feel like deep frying anything, so that left griddle breads.
And honestly if it had not been for the chapatti (which I would never again make on a weeknight due to all the rolling out — naan, which is quickly stretched by hand and oh-so-much tastier in my humble opinion, is a better choice by far) I think this dish would have come together fairly quickly and painlessly.
The naan roll is practically the same thing, stuffed into a large slice of naan, which is baked against the wall of a tandoori oven right there behind the counter.
But BoingBoing readers are a different bunch: you see aliens in naan.
