To paraphrase Annie Get Your Gun, anything bread can do, naan can do… differently. Not better, per se, but with a uniquely enjoyable flair.
Naan is a traditional East Indian flat bread that's as versatile as it is delicious, and Trader Joe's Whole Wheat Tandoori Naan boasts manifold merits. It's baked in a tandoor oven, as custom dictates, and it gets its unique, toothy texture from stone ground whole wheat flour. The subtle nutty flavor, soft yet sturdy texture and distinct oval shape lend to multiple methods of enjoyment. Warm and serve with butter, use in lieu of utensils for scooping food and soaking up sauces—great with Indian-style curries as well as Italian-style fare and hearty soups and stews—or layer with your favorite meats, cheeses or vegetables to create impressive sandwiches.
We're selling each 18 ounce package (6 naan) of Whole Wheat Tandoori Naan for $3.69. You'll find it on our fresh bakery racks. To paraphrase Annie Get Your Gun again, you can't get a man with a naan (but you can pick up your food).
