Naan Barbari

Bread is called ‘ Naan’ in Fasi language. In Iran we have different types of breads Like Nan Lavash, Nan Sangak, Nan Taftun and last but not least, Naan Barbari ( I love this one ). Naan Barbari is a type of flat and giant bread with about 80 cm long and 20 cm wide. But nowadays bakeries bake giant round shape Barbari bread as well.
All bakeries are baking bread 3 times a day for breakfast, lunch and dinner time, so you can get very fresh and beautiful bread from bakeries.
