Coconut Garlic Naan

Coconut Garlic Naan

Muneeza AhmedDo you have memories of your favorite childhood food? The intoxicating smell that would fill your senses and elevate your mood?

For me, that dish is naan.

What is Naan?

Naan is a traditional Indian flatbread baked in a hot clay tandoor oven with a charcoal or wood fire. At home, my family would use a cast iron skillet. No matter the mechanism for cooking, the result was always the same…doughy, garlicky naan goodness.

I simply had to find a way to recreate this Coconut Garlic Naan to be Medical Medium® friendly. I wanted my children to be able to experience the smell and the flavor of fresh garlic naan.

Well, I have finally mastered this naan recipe and am bringing it to you. While this version of naan is not as fluffy, the flavor is on point!

Where to get coconut meat

A key ingredient in this recipe is coconut meat. I love to purchase this frozen coconut meat which is linked in my Amazon store.  I will stock up my freezer once a year since we don’t use coconut meat very often. However, for this Coconut Garlic Naan and for my Coconut Yogurt recipe, it is great to have coconut in my freezer.

Of course, you can also use fresh coconut meat from young Thai coconuts, but that is obviously more work. If you do use fresh coconuts, you will get approximately one cup of meat from one coconut. It does vary, though, because some coconuts have more meat than others. If you are choosing to use fresh coconut meat, I highly recommend using the Coco-Jack to open your coconuts and use their meat scooper. Their tools are easy enough for my kids to open coconuts with and are completely safe and effective (no machetes needed!).

Where to get coconut water

If you are using fresh coconuts, I highly recommend using coconut water from the coconut to blend your naan dough. If you don’t have access to fresh coconuts, I recommend using Iberia coconut water, which is also linked to my Amazon store. This brand is also available at most Walmart stores.

A Note on Eating Fat

This recipe is made from only healing foods: coconut meat, coconut water, garlic, onions & green onions. There are no flours or other processed foods included. I like to make mine without salt because the garlic and onions lend the recipe plenty of savory flavors. This wrap can easily be used as part of a low-fat diet. It can be used as a salad wrap or a potato wrap. Of course, if you are avoiding fats altogether, this recipe should be avoided until you are ready to bring them back in!

The point is, you can use this delicious recipe to avoid eating other troublemaker foods, and it is a recipe that for years helped me stay low to no fat and helped me transition to cleaner and cleaner eating.

I used to make this recipe with some flax meal in the past in order to make the wrap a bit thicker and to hold it together. I find that it does not need the flax meal to hold it as it holds perfectly well without it. If you wish to add flaxmeal, add about 1/2 cup to this recipe.

The great news is that you can enjoy delicious tasty meals without compromising flavor or satisfaction while you are healing
