This morning, I was in Brookshire’s picking up breakfast from the deli (scrambled eggs and bacon because I was running too late to cook at home and didn’t want fast food). I noticed the rack of Stonefire® Tandoor Baked Naan hanging right near the deli counter, so I grabbed some for lunch, along with a container of hummus.
The first time I had naan was actually in Luxembourg in Europe at a Indian restaurant. Naan is an unleavened bread, originally from Central and South Asia with a Middle Eastern influence. It’s cooked in a tandoor (a hot, earthen oven), and usually stretched by hand and basted with a ghee, or clarified butter. You use it to scoop up other foods, stuff it or fill it with something else. I think that day in the Indian restaurant, we all piled our naan high with spicy eggplant curries and tandoori chicken.
Today, I just ate it at my desk, breaking off small pieces while I worked and scooping up mounds of savory hummus. It was a delicious snack that sustained me throughout the day.
Stonefire® nann is made in a traditional way with an authentic look and taste. It’s hand-stretched and made in small batches. It’s baked in high heat in a tandoor oven so it has the large bubbles, smoky flavor and airy texture of traditional naan. While it’s made with authentic ingredients such as buttermilk and ghee, it can be frozen and comes two to a package.
