Rosemary Garlic Naan Bread

naan bread, indian naan bread, homemade naan bread,

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.

 

Love Amy
