TJ’s TANDOORI NAAN (frozen)


I really enjoy these Naan breads that TJ carries in the frozen section. These Naan are tasty, cheap and super convenient, just needing some warming up, and they say “Made In India” and “hand stretched” – sounds authentic! A package has 4 Naan for $2 (50 cents each!) TJ sells two versions, this plain Tandoori Naan and they also have a Garlic Naan version, which is quite flavorful. You might try both versions as both are really good. TJ also sells some non-frozen Naan in the Bread section. These cost a little more and I think are a bit thicker.

These Naan can be used for so many things. Of course these flatbreads go great with any of TJ’s pretty numerous Indian food items, but of course the Naan can be used anywhere a flatbread type bread would be good… with saucy foods, soups, etc. Bake these with cheese on top, or some ham or prosciutto, and you have a terrific easy creation. Really your imaginations are your only limit on what you can do with these.

To heat them, I sometimes throw these in the oven, or a toaster oven and sometimes just throw them in a pan. Hit them with some olive oil or butter or ghee and they become even more tasty. I do some butter and fresh crushed garlic sometimes and find these fabulous. Or buy the Garlic Naan versions if you don’t want to smash your own fresh garlic. The Garlic Naan ones have a little more flavors and some green stuff (cilantro or scallions).

I mentioned in an earlier post that you can put together some pizzas using Naan for your pizza base, in minutes! Try with these, or if you want a bit thicker base the Naan TJ carries in the fresh breads section.

So with your next TJ Indian feast, grab some Naan while you’re at it. A package of TJ’s Tadka Dal ($2) and some Naan and you have a dinner in 3 minutes for a few bucks that is as good takeout. I even made my own Tadka Dal and ate it with this Naan and since I had extra even gave some to my upstairs neighbor who thanked me profusely said they devoured it in minutes and said it was as good as an Indian restaurant.
