Food: Bread
Naan Machine   (+25, -2)  [vote for, against]
Like a bread machine, but for naan.

This amazing machine combines all the necessary ingredients, mixes and rises the dough, then individually bakes small flattened globs of dough in the built-in tandoor oven. Yumminess guaranteed.

Besides homemade Indian food, try naan with:

sloppy Joe, cream chipped beef, baked beans, eggs Benedict, Chinese takeout, fajitas, spaghetti, hummus, salsa or guacamole, Navajo tacos,...

or just eat them by themselves.

(semi) Compact Roti Maker http://kmenterprise.../Ultra-Compact.html
Won't fit on your counter-top, but might roll in next to the stove. [reensure, Oct 14 2005]

Good Ghod yes.

it truly is an amazing machine.

//Any thoughts as to how the machine would break the dough up in to smaller pieces for individual baking?//

I was thinking that the dough globs would be pinched off into a spinning cylinder that would flatten the dough before hurling it into the tandoor. That's right; I have no clue.

I prefer to cook my naan on an iron skillet under a broiler (just let it heat up till a flour dusting will brown first). Tandoors are a bit of a pain to carry around.

have iron skillet, will travel.
but I’ll give it a (+) none the less.

Did anyone else find it strangely coincidental that the race in Babylon-5 that most looked like naan bread, were called, "The Narn"? </tjisosfgm>

Don't want to be the voice of dissent here, but this is being very well bunned for what is just a slightly modified breadmaker. Oh well, such is the mystery of the 'bakery.

[wagster], that's because everyone's mouths are watering at the thought of fresh nan. This is truly a must-have kitchen appliance.

Next up, a toaster type device that hurls poppadoms?

Poppadom-frisbee: there's potential there. First one to make it into a good idea wins some croissants.

Croissant maker?

If you give me naan, I'll give you a bun no matter how wobbly or possibly baked beyond belief the idea is. +

My neighbor makes roti all the time ... it looks like naan. Nonetheless ,,, yummy. If anyone wants to make a versatile machine, it must produce macaroons as well.

This invention is Naan-sense (+)
-- energy guy, Oct 14 2005

You don't know naan about naan. (ebonic reference: 'nann' means nothing. Amongst many other translations. Such is ebonics.)

If this ever makes a nan, it will become unstable and self destruct. This reminds me of a song.

One little, two little, three little dirty nans, four little, five little, six little dirty nans, seven little, eight little, nine little dirty nans -- ten little filthy nans!

There were ten in the bed, and the little one said, 'postdecrement, postdecrement' So they all postdecremented and everything self destructed.
