Homemade Naan Bread

how to make naan bread

Naan bread is, for me, one of the staples of a good Indian meal. Less rice, more bread; that’s my motto. And it’s a good one. One to live by. Homemade naan bread? Even better. Far better, in fact. Once you’ve learnt to make a good naan bread from the comfort of your home, you’ll never look back.

Asian Sesame Seed Slaw

White Cabbage Colseslaw Recipe

Coleslaw – or slaw, for short – is a fantastically versatile side dish. Composed primarily of finely sliced ribbons of red and/or white cabbage, slaw is able to adopt and absorb any flavours successfully, usually to delicious effect. For me, however, white cabbage slaw always has an “Asian” feel about it – my apologies for the generalisation. This Asian Sesame Seed Slaw, for instance, benefits greatly from the presence of just a little sesame oil, a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds and a pinch of chilli flakes. Seasoned similarly, it makes the perfect accompaniment to almost any noodle dish, but also as a fresh dish alongside a curry.
