The post was shared on Twitter by user @ashoswai. It has received hundreds of responses and likes from intrigued Indian users. âI had no idea the Swedish supermarket would ever sell fresh dough for Naan,â he wrote. In the photo, you could see a packet of ready-made Naan dough. The package stated that the dough would be enough for 4-6 servings of the delicious Indian bread. Although the product itself is not Indian, the image itself has piqued the curiosity of Twitter users.
A number of users have also shared their comments on the origins of naan, and whether it is an Indian dish or originated elsewhere in Asia. Some were also proud that Indian food had traveled so far that a ready-made Naan product was available in a Swedish supermarket.
Take a look at some of the reactions:

This is the hardest job of kneading dough – Mariam (@ mariam27287) November 2, 2021
Very interesting to see this in a foreign country.
I guess the naan is originally from Central Asia, as many say here. But naan in Punjab is quite different I guess.
In other countries, it looks more like a bun, while in Pakistani Punjab, it is crispier and thinner. – Mohammad Omar ???????????????????? ????????? ?????????????????????? (@IamUmarQadri) November 3, 2021
If all this Naan gossip has made you curious, we’ve got you covered. Humble Naan can be recreated at home quickly with ingredients readily available at home. Although the traditional recipe uses yeast in its manufacture, naan can also be made without yeast.
