Afghan Naan with Nigella Seeds
Nutty-tasting nigella seeds are optional on this fluffy naan.Jeff Koehler

This fluffy, long naan is made in the style of the Afghan naanwais, or breadmakers, in the Bhogal neighborhood of South Delhi, and was adapted from Naomi Duguid and Jeffrey Alford's book Flatbreads & Flavors. Sometimes called "snowshoe naan," it's traditionally made with whole wheat flour and often contains nigella seeds. While typically made in a tandoor, this staple bread can be approximated using a pizza stone in a very hot home oven.
