I squirm at the thought of dipping cookies into milk. Crumbs in my beverage? Nothankyou. I will make an exception for the occasional biscotti.
But when it comes to dunking bread of any type into saucy foods, soups, stews, etc. I am totally, 150% on board with that action.
This is a simple way to dress up store-bought naan. It packs a ton of flavor – perfect for garlic lovers! The cilantro breaks it up and adds a bit of freshness that goes with most Indian curries.
My husband and I absolutely love this stuff, and it’s super simple to make. It’s easily halved, doubled, quadrupled, etc. We like to snip the finished naan into triangles with kitchen scissors and dunk away!
Note – it’s totally possible to find vegan naan, and vegan butter works well here, too, if dairy is a concern in your home.
