Naan is something you’ll find throughout Central Asia, yet the Uygur people have done a wonderful job putting their own spin on the food.
Uygur bread is made of fermented flour and comes in all shapes and sizes, including flatbread and thick bagel-like bread. With no other ingredients added to the dough, such as sugar or cream, the bread is a very healthy food.
The bread, with its golden crispy crust and a big round shape, boasts a long history in China. Since ancient times, naan has enjoyed great popularity as a staple among almost all ethnic groups in China. During the Tang Dynasty (618-917), it was called hubinor lubinand became very popular among Han people.
