Trying to make Naan bread

Frying the bread

One of the things I miss eating is Naan. I used to get it when I went to the farmer’s market, where I would watch them fry up the batter right there. But of course, they make it with wheat, so i wanted to make my own without, and when I saw a recipe for it in the yogurt book, I thought I would give it a try.

Here is what it entailed:

  • 2 cups of flour (I used brown rice flour)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 3/4 of a cup of yogurt.

The whole thing is mixed up, and then kneaded, but it wouldn’t knead. It was too soft. I kept adding flour until I could sort of knead it,b ut that part was a total failure. When I fried it up, it more resembled pancakes, and tasted as such to me.

I fried up the whole batch that I made, and then put them aside, thinking it was a total failure.

But Cartoonist has been using the naan bread for wraps with her rice, and eggs, and says that although it doesn’t take like the naan that we get at the farmer’s market, it tastes good enough for her.

And that is good enough for me, for now.
