Paleo Naan Bread (Flatbread)

We made some Indian food for dinner the other night (Chicken Tikka Masala…and it was so good…recipe to follow in a day or two). My favorite part of Indian food has always been the Naan bread.

I searched around the internet looking for different recipes (grain-free and traditional) to get an idea of how to go about making my own. I don’t know about you, but I generally never expect paleo bread type recipes to turn out really good. I know they will be edible and might even taste good, but I rarely expect them to taste non-paleo. They will invariably be a bit coconutty, almondy or eggy. This actually tasted like bread to me! Oh happy day 🙂 Who knows though….it’s been years since I’ve had real bread, and even longer since I’ve had authentic Naan, so maybe I’m just forgetting what it actually tastes like. I wish that would happen with chocolate.

So here you go. Paleo Naan Bread adapted a bit from this one over at Real Sustenance. By the way, you don’t have to wait until you’re having Indian food to make this. It would make a great sandwich bread or hamburger bun.

Instructions

  1. Put everything together in a food processor and whiz until well mixed. It is not a dough consistency but it’s also not quite as runny as pancake batter.

  2. Melt 1-2 Tablespoons of ghee or coconut oil in a skillet over medium high heat.
  3. Drop about two to three large tablespoons of batter into the hot pan.
  4. Quickly get your finger wet with water and tap down the batter to help spread it into a circle shape.

  5. Cook about 2 minutes before flipping. It does not make little holes like pancakes do. It’s ready to flip when it’s golden brown on the bottom.
