I love Indian food. It's a fact. When I come home (or stay home for extended periods of time due to unemployment), it is a longstanding tradition for my mother and me to enjoy the spicy delicacies at one of the local Indian lunch buffets. Well, it has been a while since I have satisfied this particular craving. Just the other day my sister - who happens to be in Londontown for the year - was despairing over the lack of tortillas and the plethora of naan in her life! I, on the other hand, couldn't imagine a better situation.
So, on one of my usual escapades through food blogs, I was absolutely thrilled to discover The Bread Baking Babes. Once a month they put out a bread baking challenge...and this month was none other than NAAN, brought to us by Cookie Baker Lynn. Tonight I tried it out - halving the recipe and subbing 1/3 cup of whole wheat flour and 1/3 cup besan (garbanzo flour) to kick things up a bit. It came out surprisingly well - "it tastes like naan" according to my dad! I served it up with some saag tofu and curried cabbage. Thanks BBB for a fun challenge, and I look forward to baking with you all again!
