I absolutely love naan. Give it to me plain, with garlic or with just about anything in it and I’ll eat it. But it’s hard to find a recipe for naan that doesn’t have dairy in it. That’s why I created my Vegan Garlic Naan that you can make on the stove top without adding yeast. That’s right, you don’t have to sit there for an hour and let this Garlic Naan rise, as it has absolutely no yeast in it, only baking powder.
The key to this Vegan Garlic Naan is using a rolling pin to thin it out to about 1/8, even 1/16 inch thick. This way, what little baking powder it has in it will make it fluff up almost like pita bread. It comes out perfectly textured if you do it this way. Otherwise, it’s just too thick and heavy and doesn’t taste as fluffy and nice.
I ate this today for lunch with my Vegan Paneer Butter Masala that I made for dinner last night. The Vegan Garlic Naan was the perfect addition to this savory Indian dish that I love so much. The only problem now…I don’t have anything to eat for dinner. Back to the kitchen for more recipes!
