Chapati v Naans
« on: August 18, 2014, 07:03 PM »
Nothing wrong with Naan breads at all Supermarkets are bulging with them So why are Chapatis going out of vogue ?
Once you got the knack there easier to make and store and great for mopping the plate For me there much tastier
Do any of you like and use them? ;D

I eat chapatis form time to time as a wrap for chicken tikka, but prefer naan with a curry.

love chapatis

3 or 4 at a time with my curry

simple to make....no faffing about weighing things and waiting...waiting...waiting...for yer naans

count me in on the chapati side.

although, if I'm eating out, it's always a naan

Hi
I find chapatis great for storing in the fridge but if I won't naan I'll just call at the naan bakery and grab the tipe I fancy there cheap and there is no way I could carry all the fillings they offer for just one naan.Great place to pick up if I'm going to a friends BBQ 4plain naans 1pound.
Regards

It's naan for me. I prefer the way they soak up the sauce. But parathas are good too, especially if they are properly layered and a bit flaky :)

Chapati's and Parathas over naan every time for me. But the no.1 has to be a dal puri.  ;)

Chapatti for me, even witn tandoori chicken.  The only dish with which I prefer a naan (and then it has to be a keema naan) is lamb dhansak.  Don't know why, but lamb dhansak, lime pickle, onion salad and keema naan seems the perfect combination to me.  I also like a stuffed paratha,

I think chapati seems to be a sort of 'poor relation' to the naan sometimes, unfairly I think, as it can be a thing of quality in its own right (e.g. as was mentioned not just in wraps). But perhaps it's a visual thing- a plated-up tower of freshly cooked naans is certainly more impressive!
