Paneer Naan Recipe

Recipe By Slurrp

Paneer Naan is a popular Indian bread stuffed with a flavorful mixture of paneer cheese, spices, and herbs. The naan is made with a combination of all-purpose flour, yogurt, and yeast, resulting in a soft and fluffy bread. The paneer cheese is mixed with onions, garlic, ginger, and a blend of spices like cumin, coriander, and turmeric. The naan is rolled out, filled with the paneer mixture, and cooked on a hot griddle until golden brown and slightly charred. Serve hot with your favorite curry or chutney for a delicious and satisfying meal.
