Naan is arguably the most famous Indian flatbread around the world. The origins of the word trace back to Iran & Afghanistan, but these days naan is a staple in Indian food.
Unlike your typical Indian naan, however, the east-meets-west themed ‘Beer Naan’ is a longtime family favorite of acclaimed restauranteurs Raj & Bina Sharma, founders of Maine’s longest-running Indian restaurant Bombay Mahal.
Learn how to make this icon of Maine in your very own kitchen with Bombay Mahal’s special recipe:
