I don't have space for any more kitchen equipment, or money to waste. I want to cook nan breads but I don't have a tawa ( a sort of skillet) I do have a metal bakers peel that I use to put pizzaz in and out of the oven. can I cook on the gas stove using the peel instead of a tawa?
I LOVE naan! But I’ve only made it once. I used a cast iron skillet. As I understand it, naan needs high heat to cook quickly and develop the bread’s texture. Cooking them on a stovetop is a great way to go, but make sure you’ve done your prep and your kitchen’s well ventilated.
As for the pizza peel, if it can handle high heat for longer than it takes to put a pizza in the oven, I see no reason why you couldn’t use it, although if you do have a cast iron skillet, I’d recommend that, for its heat retention and stability on a burner.
