I’ve been in search of a do-it-yourself naan recipe to attempt, so I’m enthusiastic about this one! I’m wanting ahead to making an attempt this at dwelling quickly and love the good inspiration that’s coming in nowadays.

Saved within the fridge, leftovers will maintain for as much as per week and all this recipe wants is a delicate re-heating for a straightforward and satisfying weekday lunch or dinner. Excellent for these cool (and darkish) winter days (over right here in North America anyway)!
