Easy Naan Bread Recipe (Coriander & Garlic Naan Bread Recipe)

Welcome to Xiao’s Kitchen. My name is Xiao Wei, ever since my Mother taught me how to cook at an early age, I have always had a strong passion for Cooking. My family still live in Inner Mongolia in the northern part of China, where I visit each year and pick-up new Asian/Chinese recipes.

Naan bread originates from Central and South India with influence from the Middle-East. The most familiar and readily available varieties of naan in Western countries are the South Asian varieties. It is often referred to as a specific kind of flatbread (another well-known kind of flatbread is chapati). Generally, it resembles pita and, like pita bread is usually leavened with yeast. It can be used to scoop other foods or served stuffed with a filling.

Naan bread can be served with curries, stews and many more.
