Undoubtedly the most popular bread in Central, South, and West Asia, Naan is a type of flatbread that is traditionally made in tandoors, a special clay oven. This bread’s chewy texture makes it the perfect addition for Indian dishes like curry.
Perhaps one of the reasons why this bread is so iconic is because of its history. This bread has been made since 1300 AD. There are tons of varieties of naan such as garlic naan topped with crushed garlic and butter, and kulcha which is stuffed with onions, potatoes, nuts, and other fillings. It is best served fresh from the oven and slightly charred. For extra decadence, brush some ghee or Indian clarified butter.
