Garlic Naan Breadadmin
Naan is a traditional Indian sourdough bread that is served to accompany meat and fish dishes, especially when they are rich in seasoning. By custom it is cooked in a tandoori clay oven, but it can also be prepared at home using just a few ingredients. This recipe flavors the Naan dough with garlic, and uses with fresh garlic and herb as a topping, a very aromatic bread to enjoy. Chef Ravi
Garlic Naan Bread
- 3-4 tbsps Secolari Mantequilla Olive Oil
- 2 cloves of garlic minced
- 1-2 tbsps minced cilantro or Italian parsley

- Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Grease skillet all over with 1/2 teaspoon of the extra oil.
- Place one piece of the naan on the oiled hot skillet and cook until bubbles form on top, about 1-2 minutes. While cooking, brush the top with a little oil.
- Flip over and cook for another 1-2 minutes, until large golden spots appear on the bottom.
- Remove from the skillet and wrap in a clean kitchen towel. Repeat with the remaining naan (keep them wrapped in a towel while you work).
- Combine oil and minced garlic together in a bowl. Brush each naan with the garlic sauce and top with the fresh herb.
