I recently discovered the wonderful cuisine of India.
Where have all these flavors been all my life?… Okay so its’s been there forever, but really why haven’t I discovered it sooner!
Can you tell I get super excited when new flavors are introduced to my palate?
Most Indian dishes comes with a side of oven flat bread called, Naan.
Many Indian dishes such as curry, butter chicken, and many more, are cooked in a thick sauce. What better way to soak up all that sauce , than with a delicious side of Naan.
I think I look more forward to the naan than the actual meal! Maybe its because I am a total starch fein…
How would you feel if I told you can make your very own Naan at home? I have a super easy recipe for you to try at home! I took this to a different level by brushing rosemary and garlic when its done cooking.
You can thank me and tell me you love me after you try it for yourself.
