New in the Market: Stonefire Tandoor Baked Naan

Stonefire Naan 300We love to try new foods. Some are great. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think. 

Stonefire was a new company for us and the flatbreads they made were excellent. Traditional naan is a flatbread baked in small amounts in a searing hot, clay, tandoor oven. Within seconds the dough cooks and bubbles and the naan is done. To duplicate this process on a commercial level and obtain the true smoky taste of naan requires a great deal of ingenuity. The Stonefire brand headed by the Ajmera family has succeeded in producing an excellent, authentic tandoor baked naan.

Each package holds two 4 ounce naans available in Original, Whole Grain, Sweet Chili and Garlic flavors. All four are made with buttermilk and ghee (clarified butter) and contain no preservatives, additives or artificial colors. Stonefire Tandoor Baked Naan is sold in the fresh bread aisle and should be eaten or frozen within 6 days of purchase. The company recommends heating the bread before eating by lightly sprinkling it with water and then using the oven, grill, toaster or microwave. Instructions are provided on the package. We wrapped the naan in a lightly moistened paper towel and heated it in the microwave. It was delicious. We tried the flatbread as a wrap, as an alternative to a hamburger roll and as the base for dipping.

The recommended serving size is a half naan (about 2 ounces) which has 190 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 1 grams of fiber. The Whole Grain Naan has 4 grams of fiber in a serving. Sodium values range from 400 milligrams for Whole Grain to 430 milligrams for Original and Garlic and 470 milligrams for Sweet Chili. This is a brand definitely worth trying.
