what kind of bread might this be

i was telling my niece about this website and she started telling me about a bread being cooked on tv and was waondering what sort of bread it might be. she said it look premitive cause the would take this bread dough (that looked similar to pita bread) and they would put it down in this stone pot sorta thing and slap it to the side of the pot and then after awhile they would slap it to the other side and it would stick to the sides. she cant remember if the pot was in the ground or what.

That sounds to me like the process of baking a naan, an bred typical of India and other places around the Himalayas. The dough is slapped onto the inside of a tandoor oven and cooks in a flash. Delicious.

I did some Naan and Curry last week. They were great. This recipe on the blog post was very easy and is from Chef Jeena who specializes in Indian cuisine.
