Naan is a leavened, oven-baked flatbread, and by adding a variety of toppings you can transform it into anything (thus earning it the moniker “Chameleon Bread”). According to Wikipedia it has its origins somewhere in central Asia and then spread to the other parts of south Asia. For some reason I was always under the assumption that naan originated in India. Probably because it is so often present in Indian restaurants.
REGARDLESS, this delicious snack has absolutely changed my life. You can buy it at almost any well stocked grocery store tucked away in some corner of the bread section. I like to heat mine up in the rice cooker until it is nice and soft, and then put a variety of toppings on it. For example:
- Cinnamon Sugar and Butter
- Garlic Salt and Butter
