Spread the Joy!
I love Naan Bread to have with the curries which I order in any restaurants. As far as I remember I have tasted Plain Naan, Butter Naan, Garlic Naan, Coriander Naan, Stuffed Naan..Aha..And one more Cheeseeeeee Naan..I tasted that in a restaurant called sparsa, which is in kayakumari. That was so good and it was my favorite one apart from Garlic and Butter Naan.. I will soon try it in home and post for you guys..
Usually they make naan using yeast. But I saw in one of anjum anand’s cooking show, in which she made naan using baking powder. I tried it and it was pretty successful. But I added some extra stuff to the naan dough to make it even more special. And the result was so good..I served this along with Low Fat Paneer Butter Masala..I hope you will try this and tell me how it turned out.
