Naan

Naan is a soft, yeast-leavened Indian flatbread that is a must-have side for curry. Rip pieces off the oven-baked bread and use them to scoop up bits of meat or mop up any extra sauce from your meal. Naan can be served simply by being brushed with a little ghee or can get stuffed with a variety of fillings. Food & Wine’s guide shows you how to make homemade naan, turn leftovers into crunchy chips or substitute naan in your next pizza recipe.

At Bindaas in Washington DC, chef Vikram Sunderam doesn’t have a traditional tandoori oven, so why would he make a traditional naan? This addictive flatbread is filled with bacon and cheddar cheese, in place of the traditional cottage cheese or paneer, and then fired a la minute in the restaurant’s pizza oven. “The cheddar melts so nicely in the naan. Plus, it’s just so American,” says Sunderam. Slideshow: More Eggplant Recipes
