Let's Go: Eggless Butter Naan
Updated: Aug 27
I've been into #quarantinebaking (stay tuned!) and this is bread, but it doesn't require baking. You can make the Naan on the stove pretty quickly! I love Naan and so when this video from Hands Touch on YouTube was recommended to me, I had to try it.
What is Naan?
Naan is a flatbread that is typically associated with Indian or Pakistani cuisine, but it is eaten in many places: Western Asia, South Asia, Myanmarand theCaribbean. In India, it is typically cooked in a tandoor oven, but if you don't have one (like me), you can also cook it on the stove.
ORIGIN OF NAAN
"All the time we talk about bread, the origin of the recipe roots into the oldest history of the cuisine. The Naan bread recipe is not an exception.
This Asian bread is mentioned the first time on 1300 BC by the Indian poet and musician Amir Khusrow, but its origin is almost certainly older: probably since the arrive of yeast in India from Egypt. During the Moghul era, Naan was served as breakfast at noble families.
Naan in old Persian means bread, and in Iran indicate any kind of bread. The Naan bread served in all the Indian restaurant from all over the world has been likely invented between India and Pakistan.
Over the centuries, Naan spread into Myanmar, Afganistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Iran, and the Chinese region of Xingjian. As a result of the migration flows, Naan also reached the Persian Gulf."
Flour – 2.5 cup
Baking soda – 1 tsp
Baking powder – ½ tsp
Salt – ½ tsp
Sugar – 1 tsp
Lemon juice – 1.5 tbsp
Oil – 2 tbsp
Milk – 1 cup
I made a whole batch. I mixed together all the ingredients.
I rolled and shaped them into small pieces, but I didn't make perfect circles as in the video. Haha! :) Then I just cooked them on the stove -- a couple minutes on each side.
We are good at this. I guess I held back on a full ! because I didn't shape them into perfect circles as in the video -- but they were still really good.
This is an easy fast fun recipe. This is also a bread recipe that also does not need eggs or yeast, so it's easy to pull together.
It's tasty with Indian food or just as a snack with whatever.
Give it a try! We are good at this!
