Bread bowl/ Naan bowl

Neela rufus


Naan is a traditional leavened flat bread popular in West, Central and South Asia. It's very popular throughout India. I love this soft and thick bread. It pairs nicely with almost all the Indian curry i make. It's getting popular in United States too, now i can find naan in my local stores.
I made naan in the shape of a bowl. I love bread bowls with steaming chilli or chowder. I fill the naan bowls with vegetarian and non-vegetarian stews i make.
