Cakes and baking


Naans are best frozen in an airtight bag.


A good imitation of naan bread can be made at home by using a griddle, wok or frying pan to cook the bread, and brushing water or oil over the upper surface to encourage the dough to bubble. The bread can be flavoured with aromatics including fresh coriander, garlic or onion, and spices such as cumin or black onion seeds.
