BWJ - Oasis Naan
This week's Baking with Julia challenge is Oasis Naan. These nan really couldn't be easier to make - there's not much to them apart from flour, water and yeast, and chopped scallions, caraway seeds and salt for the topping.
They are very non-attention seeking for a bread - once the dough is mixed, it sits for 2 hours to look after itself while it rises, then it is shaped and baked on a pizza stone for around 8 minutes - done. I only made a half recipe to get four naan.
The naan taste good, but I was disappointed because they are nothing like naan that I would get at my local Indian restaurant, which tend to be light, pillow and could almost float away.
To see what the other BWJ members thought of these naan, visit the LYL section of the BWJ website.
