Naan is a leavened, oven-baked flatbread which was introduced at the Imperial Court in Delhi, India sometime in 1300 AD. Since then, it has been a staple food in Asian countries. Naan, in old Persian, means bread. Which means saying “naan-bread” is merely just repeating the phrase 'bread-bread'. Politely remind your guests of this ‘dinner no-no’, while you add another piece of Naan to their plate.
While this naan recipe calls for Butter-infused Olive Oil, feel free to explore other flavors like Tandoori, Garlic and Basil. Naan is a wonderful compliment – albeit necessary piece of the dinner menu – with any Mediterranean-style dish like baba ganoush or Indian-style cuisine serving veg or non-veg curry dishes.
Whatever you are in the mood for, make sure you include Naan in your dinner plans. You and your guests will love it.
