This flat bread needs no introduction. It was a popular bread served in an Indian restaurant. Normally made using clay oven or tandoor but it can easily prepared in your kitchen by baking them in a oven or on stove top.
Naan was a regular fare in our home since my son was a great fan of this naan stuffed with dry fruit. Am using ready made mixture of sultanas, glaced cherries and mixed peel as its stuffing.
I had successfully pan fried these naan without oil and it doesn't stick to my cast iron pan at all. To get a perfect result, make sure the pan was fully heated before placing the naan and cook them using medium heat.
