Trader Joe's: A grocery store. A culture. A DESTINATION. I don't work for TJ's, I am simply a customer who loves the store, the products, & the experience.
This blog was a year-long project. In 2015 I reviewed 1 TJ's product EVERY SINGLE DAY. I visited lots of TJ's stores around the country, and when the year ended I couldn't stop. I still post often (though not daily) & I welcome your comments on the products & reviews.

Day 185 - Paneer Masala Naan
When eating out at Indian restaurants, one of the best parts (to me) is
the NAAN!! Oh man, that hot, fresh naan
coming out of the kitchen is sooo delicious!
It is hard to choose which naan to order from the menu. Some time I should just dive in and order
each and every naan to come out one at a time…
Ah – now I have a dream. A naan
Anyway, I have no idea how to make naan.
Also, I do not have a tandooor clay oven. So, I cannot make them at home.
So I did the next best thing – bought frozen naan at Trader Joe’s! and while it might not have been
AS GOOD as
when the waiter brings it to your table piping hot from the kitchen, it WAS
Ahhh - filled naan!
We are getting ready to go out of town, so sadly these last couple meals
at home are “eat everything out of the fridge to clean it out before we go”
meals.That meant that this naan was not
served with appropriate things.It was
just another item on the plate, but it did not get due justice in snuggling up
next to a tasty curry or something.Sorry naan!
But I did enjoy it. It is very
easy to prepare (preheat oven, then heat for a few minutes). I didn’t read the ingredients on the package
before eating and I THOUGHT it tasted like refried beans inside (which I
registered as a little bit odd, thinking they were more Tex Mex, but I didn’t
judge, it tasted good!).
Naan on foil. Better in your tummy!
that I read the label there were no beans…
Here is what is listed as ingredients: wheat flour, water, onion, milk, paneer (milk, salt, citric acid),
sunflower oil, salt, sugar, coriander leaves, spices, dextrose, carrot fiber,
yeast, green chili, ginger, and citric acid.See – NO beans! So that yummy
filling must have been the carrot fiber, green chili, ginger and spices I
guess.Whatever it was it tastes
good.David’s opinion was that the naan
was a bit too dry, but I blame us for that since we didn’t serve it with any
sauces to dip it into.
Good price - comes out to only .57 cents per naan.
4 naan come in one package.I
think these are a good item to have in the freezer.
