Amanda M. Rye

Can you imagine a feast without some naans on the table? At least we can’t. Pair it with dal makhani, kadhai paneer or butter chicken – a naan or two helps us put together a wholesome and lavish meal every single time. In fact, naan has been a part of our food culture since eons. This leavened tandoor baked maida bread tastes like what we assume clouds would taste like. The fluffy, soft and airy texture of naan is what makes it so special. It’s this texture that makes it so wonderful to pair it with sabzi or dal – subsequently, making it a popular food among one and all.
