More about Indian cuisine ! Let’s make some great Cheese Naan bread together, as everyone loves Naan bread. This Indian bread, which looks a bit like its Moroccan version (the msemmen), can be served warm, smeared with butter, plain, or stuffed with cheese, ground meat or vegetables.

Cheese Naan bread goes with Indian dishes. You can also watch my new recipe for pita bread cooked in a pan, which is ideal to accompany dishes with sauces or as an antipasto dip into hummus.
