Stonefire naan are baked at extremely high heat, in a tandoor oven, just as they were hundreds of years ago. The extremely high heat produces the big bubbles, airy texture and delicious smoky flavour of an authentic Indian naan. Hand stretched and made with all natural ingredients including traditional, fresh buttermilk and ghee (clarified butter), naan can be used to create any meal. Pizza, Panini, Naanwich™ or as the perfect side to curry, naan is versatile and truly one of a kind. Naan has traveled the globe and we invite you to join in on the journey, making Stonefire naan uniquely yours.
I have always been a huge fan of flatbreads and tortillas , I actually prefer them over regular sandwich breads. Growing up, my mom would always make her seafood salad or other types on “pita” bread. That round bread that you cut in half and then split open like a pocket. Well, problem is the pocket always breaks and it was very dry. So I started using tortillas and making wraps instead. So, then I found myself toasting tortillas and cutting to serve as a side bread with certain dishes. THEN one day , I was in the grocery store and someone was handing out samples of Naan bread from Stonefire. The piece I tried was garlic. I was amazed at how much flavor this had, it actually tasted like garlic. I also noticed that even cut up right out of the package, without heat or toasting or anything added to it , the bread was AMAZING. Not dry , not plain. I HAD to have some, but low and behold .. they were OUT. Apparently they were just getting rid of the remaining samples as to not waste them. Sigh!
Plan B – talk with Stonfire , get some products to try and write about it! So here I am. I received the Traditional, Garlic and Wheat Naan. I love to cook and was excited to try these in a few different ways. The first thing we did was use the Traditional and Wheat to make Naan “pizza” . I have mastered a garlic parmesan cream sauce for pasta and wanted to use that as the base for our Naan pizza. On top of that I added broccoli, grilled chicken and some mozzarella.

The second one I made was on the Traditional Naan. I spread BBQ sauce all over the bottom then topped it with Grilled Chicken & Cheddar Cheese.

Simply bake in a preheated 400 degree oven on the top rack for 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted fully. The chicken is precooked by sauteing in a pan with garlic and chopped onions. Let cool for a minute or two and then cut into desired portions.
A few days later I made Brunswick Stew , a rather “odd” combination of flavors to most who have never heard of it before. Honestly, it all works though and is yummy ! I make mine a little different than the traditional recipe because this way everyone in the house will eat it. Basically, my version consists of boiling chicken pieces to cook the chicken and create a stock at the same time. Remove everything from the pot except the stock… Add chopped onion, a can of diced tomato, a can of cream style corn, a can of hole kernel corn, a can of kidney beans, 1/2 BBQ sauce, chop the chicken and add that. Season with cayenne, garlic powder, salt, pepper, Cook for at least 2 hours to bring out all the flavors.
On a flat griddle pan or whatever similar you may have, add butter and toast your Naan bread for a minute or two until crispy on each side. Cut into strips and garnish your stew OR serve on the side. I like it on the side.

The Naan bread is very reasonably priced at about $2.50 a package (prices vary regionally) and comes with 2 pieces in each. You have never had a flat bread as good as this, unless of course it is homemade ! 🙂
You can purchase your Stonefire Naan at most grocery stores and usually near the deli section.
