The Best Ways To Reheat Naan To Perfection
By Haldan Kirsch
Microwaving your naan is easy and quick, as it takes between 30 to 90 seconds to heat, depending on the size of the naan, the number of pieces, and the power of your microwave.
Place your naan on a microwave-safe plate, add a tiny amount of water, and heat it in 30-second increments. Place parchment paper between each piece to keep it from sticking.
Air Fryer
An air fryer is another great way to reheat naan bread because its circulating air will crisp up the outer surface of the naan while keeping it from drying out.
Preheat your air fryer to 350 degrees F, add olive oil to the basket, add your naan bread and garlic or other seasonings for more flavor, and cook for three to five minutes.
Stove Top
Reheating naan on a stovetop is the most similar method to how naan is already baked, and a cast iron pan, like the Indian tawa, is a great surface to mimic the heat of a tandoor.
After preheating your pan for a minute, add a little oil or ghee to keep the bread from sticking, and reheat for about two minutes on each side.
It’s important to keep your naan from drying out. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, and lay out a single layer of naan on a lightly greased baking sheet.
Add a few drops of water to the surface of your naan to keep your oven and bread moist, and in just three to five minutes, it should be reheated and ready to eat.
