Title says it all really. Just had one, quite nice - seem softer than the roti I've come to know and love!

Oh good - I haven't had naan bread for many a long year. Whereabouts do they put it, with the other naan bread or in their funny-diet section (can't remember what it's called now, "Free From"?) or....?

Dunno, the girlfriend bought them, haha

They look like they'd be in the 'normal' section though. They're marked as vegan on the front.

i found those vegan naan breads in Sainsbury's too, they *were* in the 'normal' bread section. make sure to get the ones marked vegan of course, as many of you probably know some naan breads are made with eggs and milk.

i love that sainsbury's mark things 'suitable for vegans' on the front packaging, it makes life so much easier.
i'll definitely be checking the naan out!

hi all, i've had some really helpful feedback with some yummy looking curry/dhal recipes but i want to have some naan (preferably) or chapatis with them. however i can't find any. well, i've tried Sainsburys and they had some with lots of 'stabalisers' etc. with words i didn't understand and had no idea if they were vegan or not. they said vegetarian on them. any tips guys?? i'd be very grateful!

Sainsbury do packs of 6 mini naan breads that are labelled as suitable for vegans. They are with the pitta breads and crumpets.

Very nice they are too.

Incase anyone ever wondered, you can heat precooked (i.e. the stuff they sell in supermarkets) naan in both the microwave and toaster. It's not ideal, but we've only a microwave at work and sometimes I eat mini naan for breakfast on my way out heated for a couple of mins in the toaster.

Fresh naan is quite easy to make (especially if you have a dough making bread machine), you can susbstitute yoghurt for soya yoghurt in most recipes without problems. Black onion seeds are an important part thou and can be difficult to find in the UK.

You can make chapatis with just flour and water. Mix together and roll out. Dry fry in a frying pan and make sure you turn them a few times. Great alternative in the mornings when you find you've run out of bread! (obviously this never happens to me, I'm very organised).

Cool I never did know that.I am going totry that.And if it goes wrong,I will blame you ;) :D

i finally tried Sainsburys vegan garlic and corriander mini naans with my dhal...they were pretty good! that chapati mix sounds good though, must try it!

I discovered the other day that if you add a bit of baking powder to the flour, they puff up, more like naan.
