This Thing With the Naan

If you’ve ever had naan at an Indian restaurant, you know that the things they sell in cellophane packages at the grocery store are bogus. But they’re bread, so I got some.

I made some pizza-ish things, topping the naan with tomato sauce, thinly sliced mushrooms, sweet onions, Italian herbs, and cheese, baked at 350F in the toaster oven until the cheese melted (no pictures — mesa eatsa quicksa).

And I made this.

Which is the same thing, without the olives and tomato sauce and herbs. Really quick and pretty good.

    I would choose different ingredients, but you really can’t go wrong with something that starts with bread and is topped with melted cheese.

    I make curry and naan once or twice a year. The last few years, Moo mostly makes the naan 🙂
    I haven’t bought the naan in baggies, but I must say, after seeing this post, I SHALL! Not for curry, but for that! That looks scrumptious!

        It’s just one I got from a friend — it’s on a card in box. You got an email I can send it to? You can use Contact Me on my page if you want.

    I had low carb pita bread, split and toasted, with melted American cheese and chicken salad.

    It started with bread, and was topped by melted cheese on both sides – really yummy.

    That sounds and looks yummy! I love Naan. I just wish it loved my waistline and would be kinder to it! 🙂

    I had soup: split pea with ham for lunch today. It’s been raining, windy, and chilly. Perfect soup weather.

    Nice to see you’re making use of naan slightly differently 🙂 We have something similar on our menu, we call it ‘cheese naan’, it’s stuffed with cheese, herbs and has some spices.
