Can't find any lentils in Naan recipes.  This U-Tube video makes it look easy.  I would just use spelt instead of regular flour.     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXOSO6nU_Z8

What are those crispy flat tortilla like breads made from lentils called?

Pretty good info
on
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_cuisine

But it is important to remember that every housewife has her own recipe
- my adapted recipe on Nhan is from an 1/2 indian /pakistani family
- lots of the north indian meat dishes/food is really pakistani in origin
.... but please don´t tell them that or they "$45zx" you

Thanks for the link to the video. It does indeed look easy to make.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

Quoted from lola
would nahn be the equivalent of chapati anyone?


there is no fermentation process for chapati

chapati is thin, flat & circular, like a cousin of tortillas. it's purely unrefined wheat flour and cooked by rapidly turning it on a tava (indian hot plate).

naan, on the other hand has yeast added to the flour to help it ferment and rise. and it's not a flat circular bread, instead thickish and oval. it's usually cooked by putting the fermented dough on a hot stone inside a tanddor (indian oven). the flour used is refined wheat flour.

Quoted from Henriette_Bsec
Here it comes:

Nan bread or Nhan
not for the O´s I´m afraid

makes 5 bread

30 gram fresh yeast or 15 gram dry yeast
250 ml lukewarm water
2 tsp honey or other sweetner
100 ml  yoghurt- the tart runny version is better than a thick mild one
1 egg
100 ml melthed ghee
650 grams white or mixed white / whole grain spelt flour
1-2 tsp seas salt

200 ml yoghurt + 50 ml melthed ghee to paint the bread with
nigella seeds

dilute the yeast in luke warm water, add salt, honey, add yoghurt, egg and 500 gr of flour - add melted ghee and knead untill smoth and not stick- only add as much of the last 100 gram of flour as necessary.
Let dough raise untill double size under a wet tea towel
Turn the oven on 230 c/445 F let the baking trays get really hot white the oven heats up!

divide dough into 5-6  depending on the size you like - let them stand for a while and roll out to nan breads
tear shaped  should be rather thin -max finger thick
Put breads on the hot trays - paint with the mixture of yoghurt/ghee and sprinkcle with nigella seeds if you care for them
Bake aprox 10 min- they should puff up and be golden brown when finished



egg is usually not added. but then again, there are variations and variations...

Thanks AC

Yes the egg
- I think is the pakistani girl´s invention
something about the danish flour not having enough protein ....
I have made it without and it is good as well.
I have even made it in an old clay oven with an italian stoneplate and real woodfire - tasted much more like the real stuff made in an tanddor...
