Make your own pillowy fresh naan throughout the day, and consider also smearing it with cool-as-a-fan raita and tangy chutney, and using it as an edible blanket to wrap up spiced meats from your grill for tasty hand-held sandwiches. They'd be perfect for those hurried lunchers with their damn Bluetooth headsets in need of one-handed meals.
If you need further inspiration, you need only look three hours south to Austin, where a truck called Naan Stop (get it!?) roams the downtown streets, offering sustenance to intoxicated college kids and clubgoers after hours. On a recent visit I feasted on hot, fresh Indian food from a styrofoam container at 3 a.m. after a few too many beers and couldn't have been happier.
