1. Buttery Garlic Naan

There is no Naan made complete without hot, fried, garlic - period. Of course, without it, you'll still get a naan that’s soft and puffy, charred and crunchy. All you've got to do is to nead a roll of flour, sugar, salt, cold sour yoghurt and yeast to get a doughy Indian flatbread you can keep munching on. It’s so good on its own, but really, really, becomes a star when you drizzle on sizzling garlic, melted butter (or ghee), and dipped into curried sauces, runny tomato blends or spiced meats.

2. Grilled Turmeric Chicken
