Naan bread is a type of flatbread that is commonly found in Indian, Pakistani, and other South Asian cuisines. It is made from a dough of wheat flour, water, yeast, and sometimes milk or yogurt. The dough is typically allowed to rest and rise before being stretched or rolled out into an oval or teardrop shape.
The bread is then typically baked in a tandoor, which is a cylindrical clay oven, or on a hot griddle or pan. It is often brushed with ghee or butter to add flavor and moisture. Naan bread can be served plain or stuffed with various fillings such as cheese, garlic, or potatoes. It is commonly served alongside curries, stews, or other dishes as a type of bread to be used for dipping or scooping up sauces.
