This Whole Wheat Naan recipe just made the Indian Naan bread healthier and easier! No yeast, no fermentation and no oven/tandoor required for this instant whole wheat naan which does not compromise on the taste and spongy texture of a traditional naan made in the tandoori.
I have been MIA for almost a week. But shooting food, to be precise, 500 photographs in 3 short days (no, I did not eat that much food guys! It was for a restauranteur friend of mine) would do that to you too, right? I mean, by the nth photograph, I was already squeezing every drop of creativity out of me to style the photograph differently and make it look like you want to dive into it immediately. And then, came the dreams at night where I was doing the same food styling all over again! Phew! I needed a giant break to put me back on track and thus you have the reason for me being absent from your lives the past week.
What did I do for my break? We drove to Austin, TX and enjoyed some clubbing, some amazing Austin nightlife, the food trucks, and the food served with no prim napkins, spoons and forks. Food on my break from food? Well, what can I say? The apple does not fall far from the tree 😀
So, that’s about it. Now that you are all caught up with the happenings in my life and are unable to stop ogling the naan pictures, may be it is time to talk about the whole wheat naan recipe now?
Naan or fondly known as the naan bread, it has been the forerunner of Indian cuisine around the world. For Indians, it is mostly a part of their eat-out or restaurant menu too because of the clay oven or tandoor required to make this spongy delicacy. Considering that it is traditionally made with all purpose flour or maida, it is deemed not-so-healthy too.
However, this easy naan bread recipe uses all whole wheat flour and is made on a regular stove top and a skillet. The only thing to bear in mind is that your family will be demanding whole wheat naans from you every other day! I know I made them twice already in the past week. Not that it is difficult to make but…. Brace yourself! 😀
