The all-time tandoori favourite, now ready to make in your own kitchen, and that too using readily available ingredients!

Perked up with a delectable phudina paste made of mint, cumin and other ingredients, naan turns into an appetizingly coloured dish with an attractive flavour. Use butter rather than oil to brush the Phudina Naan while cooking, in order to get a rich aroma and ideal texture.

Serve accompanied with any subzi of your choice. I suggest you serve with Aloo Lajawab or Baby Corn Aur Paneer ka Salan or Malai Kofta . Tastes great also with Dhabey ki Dal .
