Naan is an chapati like pita bread of Asia and probably the most loved bread for all occasions throughout Asia. It has been one of most important bread in Asian restaurants throughout Europe and America for few decades, also plays big role in fast food chains in Europe. Naans play important part in all types of ceremonies and occasions in Asian societies throughout the world. But one would be surprised to see history books are almost blank about this most important food, there is not much i could find about when it was introduced and who had the brain to come up with such an delicious recipe, The first recorded history of Naan can be found in the notes of the Indo-Persian poet Amir Kusro in 1300 AD.
Naan was originally cooked at the Imperial Court in Delhi as naan-e-tunuk (light bread) and naan-e-tanuri (cooked in a tandoor oven). During the Mughal era in India. Today in India and Pakistan naan is cooked in lots of different verities like Plain Naan, Garlic Naan, Kulcha Naan, Keema Naan list caries on.
