Naan Bread

Besides my home country cuisine, Indian cooking has a special place in my heart. The warm and fragrant spices, the colorful dishes are like an invitation to satisfy the senses and the appetite!

I could have Indian three times a day, seven days a week and be a very happy girl!

That might be some kind of culinary sacrilege but I like mixing Indian food with other ethnic food, just to see. Just to enjoy!

I am greedy like that!

Naan Bread

One of the first Indian food I learn to make is the naan bread. Part because it’s so versatile, part because it’s so easy!

Nothing beats some warm naan bread with a side of baba ghanoush! Heavenly!

Hummus will do too!

How to make it?

Naan bread is unpretentious! I love serving it with freshly cut vegetables, baba ganoush when I have friends over.

It requires few ingredients, you probably have everything sitting in your pantry!

You will need unbleached flour, I like throwing some spelt in the mix for extra nutrition. Some Yeast, I use instant yeast to cut down the time. You will need baking powder, olive oil, salt, and water! Simple, right!
