Are you familiar with Indian Naan-bread? No? Well, than it’s about time for me to introduce you to this delicious flatbread.
This super tasty type of bread is actually just a fluffy and soft flatbread, shortly baked in a traditional Indian tandoor-oven. It’s an integral part of the daily Indian kitchen since it is served along with almost all kinds of warm meals.
You can enjoy Naan-bread as a side dish or in many other different ways.
As you can see, I chose to prepare a coriander-Naan-bread.
I served it along with my tasty Chimichurri, some Hummus with smoked paprika powder and a few green olives. It was delicious!!
You are free to roll out the dough a bit thicker than usual and to fill it with many different delicacies such as veggies, onions and garlic. Just an idea;-))
It doesn’t really matter how you fill it, as long as the dough is light and fluffy and the bread is baked either in a hot pan, or a very hot oven.
There are no limits to your creativity when it comes to how you prepare your bread.
And now I will show you how to quickly prepare a perfect Naan-bread.
Have lots of success and enjoy this wonderful bread!
