Eat This

Does your store have naan? It is an Indian flatbread thing, and the store-bought stuff is not nearly as good as what you get in a restaurant, so even though we love it and even though I make Indian food a couple of times a month, I never buy it because it is a let-down. But! And oh my, this is a wonderful but! If you get the naan (some places have it in the bakery, some have it frozen), and a jar of pizza sauce and your personal favorite pizza toppings and have make-your-own-naan-pizza-night, you will love me, and your stomach will love me, and your family will love you for feeding them such excellent food.

Eat it, you will like it.

Naan is pretty easy to make, actually. I will see if I can remember to find and pass on the recipe to you. But that's a great idea. We have been making pizza on pita bread for a while, but naan sounds even more delicious.

I toast store-bought naan in toaster oven until it's warm but not toasted and then dip it in hummus. DELISH.

I agree, that is delicious. And I think Laura's right, naan is easy to make. But if you go to the restaurant, you can also have aloo ghobi and a sweet lassi. Those I don't know how to make. :)

i LOVE naan. Trader Joes actually sells some really good naan, so does a store around here called New Seasons. but you're right, most of the ones you find are disappointing!

As much as I like the store bought naan, I'm almost afraid to try the real thing in public. I fear I might behave....inappropriately.

I get the store-bought naan, brush it with butter, then put it under the broiler for like 30 seconds to a minute. Perfection.

Trader Joe's has really delicious naan in the frozen section. It cooks in the oven or a hot skillet in just a couple of minutes. I'll have to try the pizza idea!

Ooooh, good suggestion! I'm adding this to our October menu.

No naan here, and I had dahl tonight and really, really wanted it. I should learn how to make it.

I love naan, my husband makes it, it's different from the stuff you get in restaurants but absolutely delicious. My work canteen was doing naan bread pizza for a while, I thought it was an odd idea but it does work doesn't it?

Let down - true story.

Your meal sounds good and easy! Yay!

I make it myself, too; I was shocked at how it's really pretty easy. But I nearly ruined a stainless steel skillet because it scorched the bottom inside of my pan. It was only when I begged and pleaded with my husband to use his elbow grease that it all the residue came off. Now I use a cast-iron skillet and it works great!

Discovered it here a few months ago. My son has a friend who is from India and they eat it all the time. So, he asked what it was. We found it and eat it about once a week.

Been meaning to find a recipe to try to make it myself. But, the store bought Naan is good.

I love naan. Some stores have better naan than others. I've been meaning to make pizza with it. Usually I use it for hummus (so much better than pita!).

I love naan.
