When I lived in LA, there was a food court at Century City where a lady served the best Indian food I've ever had. I especially loved her naan bread with cilantro chutney.

This recipe is an attempt to recreate her recipe, and it turned out really tasty, but not the same as hers. So, I am going to experiment with it using all purpose flour, as there should be a difference in texture.

This recipe is not hard to prepare, would work as a pizza dough, but it makes a lot of naan, which freezes nicely.
