Trader Joe's Tandoori Naan Review

He says (Mark): The best naan I've had outside an authentic Indian restaurant. And I'd say it is better than some fresh-made restaurant naan I can recall (including Texas, New England, UK). I'd categorize this as medium to heavy as far as weight and airiness. But it's not chewy. Definitely add at least 1 minute to baking time after preheating the oven. I suggest letting it sit 1 minute or place in a dish towel so you don't burn your fingers. Then enjoy!

Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

She says (Bridget): I very much like having these tucked away in the freezer. They're convenient and quick to bake from frozen. Although, once again, more baking time is needed than stated. This is the case with almost every TJ's item we've cooked in the oven. The naan is moderately fluffy and quite satisfying without having a strong flavor. There's no butter, garlic, or tanginess in the flatbread. The bottom is more crispy than I would like. My dream naan is pillowy and bends when I pick it up. This naan stands at attention. Maybe baking it wrapped in foil, spraying it with water before baking, or thawing overnight would help. 

Overall rating: 4 out of 5 stars
