Does Naan taste like pita bread?
The Flavor Although pita bread can be made to taste great by giving it a longer fermentation (rising) time, naan bread is generally superior in terms of flavor. Since pita bread is so basic, its flavor is enhanced by the dish it’s paired with. On its own, pita bread isn’t as flavorsome as naan.
Is naan bread low carb?
Traditional naan is an oven-baked flatbread that is found in various Indian and Asian cuisines, but it’s made with flour and definitely isn’t low carb or keto. I came up with this almond flour flatbread version that’s packed with protein and fiber. Naan often has yogurt in it, so I used keto friendly full-fat Greek yogurt in this one.
