Naan Bread

Naan Bread

Posted 2013-07-04 by Bastion Harrisonfollow
Naan bread tastes fabulous with curries and dip. The first mention of this South Asian flatbread was by an Indo-Persion poet in 1300AD, and the name comes from the the Sanskrit word 'nayan', meaning bread. They can be stuffed, had plain, or brushed with a bit of butter. Based on the brands used, each naan is about 89 calories. For extra help, check out my bread making tips .
