Trader Joe's has a frozen version that is delicious - I like to keep it around and use for mini pizza's - perfect for flat bread individual pizza's!

Everyone is always raving about it, but I've never tried it. There's just not much cultural diversity in food around here.

I'm officially hungry ... which might not be good for the beginning of Ramadan when iftar is not soon enough.

i was watching Exile on MTV last night and they were having naan - i think. otherwise it was on college jeopardy that i saw it. regardless - i like that you've shared this. i thought i knew that it was slightly different from pita - but not what cultures really eat it.
