Naan Recipe

A flatbread is a bread made with flour, water and salt, and then rolled into flattened dough. Many flatbreads are unleavened—made without yeast—although some are slightly leavened, such as pita bread and naan.

Naan, nan or khamiri is a leavened, oven-baked flatbread found in the cuisines of West, Central and South Asia.
Flatbread was already known in Ancient Egypt, the Sumerians discovered that edible grains could be mashed into a paste and then baked/hardened into a flatbread.

Jewish matza is an unleavened bread (such as matzoh which is not prepared with leavening agents) are usually flatbreads and hold special religious significance to adherents of Judaism and Christianity.
