Oasis Naan: Tuesdays with Dorie

Oasis Naan:  Pre & Post Oven Time

Well, Naan's good!  Of course, it's bread, so I thought I would like it.  I was surprised by how easy it was.  I almost passed this recipe by due to time constraints.  I also didn't want to do any kneading by hand since I have a problem with my right hand (could this be aging? yep...).  So I was very happy to read the P & Q and Phyl Of Cabbages and Kings (one of our hosts this week) had given instructions on how to use an electric mixer.  Oasis Naan was ON!!!

So good lookin' in the KA!

After 2 hour rise...

Sprinkled with Kosher Salt, Green Onion & Caraway Seed ready to go into oven

I know I have a tendency to overcook things, but I do love a little crunch, even on Naan.  And luckily with 8 to make I did get better at knowing when to pull these out of the oven.

Would I make these again?  Yes.  And I think they would be a good bread to have in the freezer.  I have 4 in there now, each still wrapped in a kitchen towel and then in freezer plastic bags.  If they don't come out of the freezer well, I may change my mind on making them again. But I think they'll do fine.

To see what others did with this recipe you can visit Tuesdays with Dorie, Baking with Julia.  Thanks to our hosts:  Phyl's blog is Of Cabbages and Kings, and Maggie's is Always Add More Butter.  The hosts have also posted the recipe.


  1. Nice job…glad you got to do these! I froze 5 of mine! They were very delicious! Your naan looks perfect!

  2. These look like they came out well.
    I froze half of mine as well - I think the directions said to just throw them in a oven for a little bit. I hope that workS!

  3. when you take them out of the freezer, just make sure you allow a full day for them to defrost and give them an hour on the outside to proof, shape and proof a bit more and you will be fine! great job!

  4. Well done! I loved this recipe.
