Indian Naan Bread Recipe Easy and Quick
This Easy Naan Bread Recipe really is one to impress your friends. It works perfectly with any Indian dish and my three easy Indian dips are also a must for any Indian dinner party.
The addition of the Nigella seeds is optional; however, I really think they give that traditional flavor you get when you order a naan bread at your favorite Indian restaurant.
My top tip for making this easy naan bread recipe is to make sure the grill is as hot as possible and also heat the baking tray or the stone thoroughly before cooking the bread.
You can make the dough ahead of time to make your dinner party preparation easier.
