Karl’s Uyghur Naan II

We were looking through some old photos, one of which was baby Eilene holding half a naan that was bigger than her head. Eilene asked, why I have not made them in years. She then asked for shashlik and naan for Sunday’s dinner. Five years ago, I posted a recipe for Uyghar naan. Since that time, I have learned some new techniques in bread making and I decided to use them in making this Central Asian bread.

Karl’s Indian Naan

I planned to have a variation of lamb Rogan Josh for this Sunday’s dinner with the kids. A saucy meat dish calls for bread to sop it up. In an Indian feast this means naan.

Karl’s Uyghur Naan

Naan (nan, non, n’n, neng) means bread and usually refers to leavened flat bread. There is a wide assortment of breads that go by that name. Some are small (Afgan), some are snowshoe shaped (Indian) and some are not even very flat at all (Tajik). In Xinjiang, the naan are big, round and flat in the middle. This bread was the most available, the safest thing to eat on the street and also the tastiest.   We ate this bread every day while we were traveling through Xinjiang.
