Naan bread

Peshwari naan bread

This Peshwari naan bread is my favourite naan bread, it it so sweet and delicious and just an explosion of flavour every mouthful. The crunchiness of the bread and then the soft filling ummmm. I had to stop myself eating the filling before it even made it to the dough. Hopefully after trying this recipe it will become your favourite too.
