I love Indian food. Most of all ~ Indian Butter Chicken. I will be honest though, this is one of those recipes where I've always shied away from making. I think it is because I have convinced myself that I will never be able to make it authentically like the way they do in the restaurants. And certainly not as tasty. Know what? I am happy to say that I was wrong. They only thing that kept me from tasting this AMAZING recipe is my own self doubt. Know what I mean? Having Indian Butter Chicken without naan bread is kind of like having grilled cheese without the cheddar. It doesn't work. And I am soooo thankful for naan bread :) You can rip it, dip it, dunk it and just old plain enjoy it however you want! Here is a Garlic Naan Bread recipe, although my preference would be to skip the garlic! Rice or peas? Today was a day for just rice without chickpeas, but if you are in the mood for a great Curried Tomatoes and Chickpeas recipe, give this one a try. Whenever possible, I like to mix up a good recipe from time to time. Make it a bit more my own flavor. Life is too boring not to experiment, you know? Although MsPia calls for paprika and cayenne pepper, which gives a more red tint to the original recipe, I love a great curry. And nothing wrong with mixing in a bit of brown sugar and apples. Why not, give it a try!
