Naan Bread

Naan Bread

Naan bread is delicious with Indian butter chicken.  It can also be enjoyed with lovely curry dishes such as Chicken Curry or Chicken Tikka Masala which is very similar to Indian Butter Chicken. Especially in winter months, when you crave warm food, this is a great idea to make.Don't just buy Naan bread(although if you buy it in South-Africa, buy from Woolworths or Checkers) try this recipe out for yourself. It is really easy to make and you will be surprised how much you enjoyed making it!
