Most people’s experience with naan is from eating it in Indian restaurants. Naan is a leavened flatbread that originated in Asia. Traditionally it is baked in a clay oven called a tandoor, but since we, and I’m assuming most of you, don’t have a tandoor we’ve taken to cooking it on the grill. And if you don’t have a grill, or the weather isn’t conducive to grilling outdoors, you can also use a cast iron grill pan. Trust me – you’re going to want to find a way to make this naan. It’s garlicky, and buttery, and delicious. And it goes great with chicken tikka.
