Naan is a soft and fluffy flatbread that hails from the Indian subcontinent. It is typically baked in a tandoor, or a clay oven, which gives it a distinctive charred and smoky flavor. Naan is versatile and can be topped with various toppings like garlic, sesame seeds, or even stuffed with fillings like cheese or minced meat. Generally, it is served as a side with curries or used to scoop up sauces.
