Bombay Naan (Oamc)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Oolala

Flat bread made without yeast in a frying pan. This can be prepared ahead and frozen and kept for 2 months. Reheat in warm oven. June/07-I just made this for my family, it was heavier and more dense than what we are used to from Naan in restaurants. I liked it, DH thought it was OK and so did my older son BUT my youngest, picky-picky, really didn't like it.

Very YUMMY naan bread! It was so easy to make and quick as well. It was indeed more dense and heavier than the ones you normally get in restaurants, but I didnt mind at all. It tasted just oh so good! I added 1/2ts curry powder, some mixed dried herbs and some caraway seeds to it in order to spice it up a bit. But Im sure it would also taste wonderful as is. Also I used half whole spelt flour instead of the normal flour and brushed the baked naans with some home-made garlic butter, which was delicious! But other than that I followed the recipe exactly and got exactly 8 breads out of it. This is a definite keeper! Thanks so much for sharing, Oolala!
