Where do I start with this one?
LOVE my Indian food. I have a hard time going any stretch of time without making or ordering some form of curry. 

Being on a gluten-free diet, of course one of the things I miss most dearly is Naan! So I set out to make a worthy replacement . . .

I am beyond pleased with how this recipe turned out. It has many of the qualities I love and miss in traditional naan bread, with a few pleasing extras like a slightly nutty flavor from the buckwheat flour, and an even fluffier and heartier texture!

My family gobbled up this naan bread and asked me to make it again (that's a win in my book!). We've since had it several times and it will no doubt be our flatbread staple served alongside our favorite Indian food dishes for some time to come.

I can only hope the same for you!

Ingredients
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 1/2 tsp (1 packet) active dry yeast
  • 2 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups buckwheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups tapioca starch
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (preferably cultured)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • Optionally: cumin seeds and fresh chopped cilantro to garnish
Instructions
In a large bowl combine warm water, yeast, and sugar. Stir to combine. Let sit for 10 minutes or until frothy.Meanwhile in another large bowl combine buckwheat flour, tapioca starch, sour cream, egg, oil and salt. Mix until smoothly combined.Pour in your yeast mixture, and mix until just combined.Cover, place in a warm & dark place to let rise for 1-2 hours, or until doubled in size.Head a greased skillet over medium-high heat.Using wet hands or a spatula, scoop out about 1/4 cup of batter and place on hot skillet. Flatten and spread into desired shape (I like tear drops), about 1/2" thick. Sprinkle with a bit of water. Cover, and cook for 2-4 minutes or until the bottom(s) starting to brown. Flip and cook uncovered for 2-4 minutes more until browning on both sides. Repeat with remaining batter.Keep loosely wrapped in a tea towel at room temperature until ready to serve.Optionally, brush with butter or oil and sprinkle with cumin seeds and cilantro before serving.Enjoy!
