Keto Peshawari Naan

Oh my, who does not like the deliciousness of a Naan? Even more, of a Peshawary Naan?

A Peshawari Naan is a sweet type of Naan, and the origin is controversial, although it points out to Peshawar, in Pakistan, in the 1500’s. Some say, this is not Pakistan or Indian at all, it is an invention of the Western World.

Whatever the origin is, it is delicious. Period.


The word Naan is derived from the Persian word ‘non’ which refers to bread, and initially appeared in English Literature dating back to 1780 in a travelogue of William Tooke. https://www.desiblitz.com/content/history-of-the-naan

Of course that the traditional recipe is not keto. And of course that this version is not like the traditional recipe. It is an adaptation to the keto way of eating, based on a recipe from Headbangers (I just added a tiny twist to the Naan dough, and added the filling to make it a Peshawary Naan. I am quite happy with the result, although I may tweak it further, who knows. Until then

Enjoy and be happy

    I Would really like to try this but I don’t have dried egg white powder, can I use fresh egg white instead and leave out some of the water? Thanks.
