Yo. There is now such a thing called Pretzel-Naan.
I are responsible.
So there I was: thinking. As usual, on now I might be able to combine my favorite things so I could ear more at once. THEN! I remembered – I have changed my eating habits. Shux!
Anyway, I love making my own bread now, but there are some things you just have to get from a PRO. So I do – two of those things being Indian Naan bread and soft Pretzels. But! This does not mean I can’t make the first (I think) ever Pretzel-Naan! And since it will BE the first, it will be the best (to me). So I did.
As you may have guessed, I took a Pretzel recipe, and a tried-and-true authentic Naan recipe and simply combined the mixing and baking process. Now obviously, I do not have a Tandoor, so I used the greatest thing ever (what else?) a FribraMent baking stone!
Basically, I my awesome bread mix, which has bread flour, whole graham wheat, flax-meal (for texture and healthiness), and added the Pretzel attitude, but also the smoothness of Naan. Yes, it worked the first time – yes it’s awesome and NO I did not take any photos. OOPS. It’s STILL rising in a nice dry place. Soon, I will eat it all. TO tantalize the taste buds, I scoured Guugle for something poofy and pretzel-like. Here you go (for now)…
My inspiration comes from Andrea!
