  1. great recipe, they could be done in the bread machine like the pizza dough. I might make a batch today, freeze them and use it for the boys lunch. They are looking for a change

  2. I very much like naans, and even more cheese naans, yum, in my favorite Indian restaurant they use Vache qui rit, I will certainly try your recipe as it looks quite easy 🙂

    1. Thanks Patty. Someone else commented on Facebook about cheese naans and I’ve never heard of it! Something new to try. Unfortunately there is nothing Indian for 100k here. Perhaps I need to move!
