These soft pillowy flatbreads, known as naan, are perfect for mopping up curries and dals but also work really well alongside barbecued meats or fish and salads. You don’t need a tandoor oven; a frying pan, cast iron skillet or tawa will work just fine. To give your naan breads a Levantine twist, make them smaller and rounder, like a side plate, and gently brush olive oil and za’atar over them after cooking. They are great for breakfast too, especially dipped in eggs.
