  • Nice recipe!   I used beef

    Nice recipe!


    I used beef mince which I browned separately on the stove ( I don't like the fine mince that the thermie turns mince into). I used peas instead of corn, and I only used half a teaspoon of chilli powder.

    Kids enjoyed, esp the naan which also doubled as their dessert, will make again.

    Hi there.

    great meal, the whole family enjoyed it, as the mince was very fine.

    two teaspoons of chilli is actually not very much for the amount you get out of it. Would probably add at least another teaspoons next time.

    the tomatoes I would cut up more finely as they were a tiny bit to chunky for my liking.


    otherwise I also noticed you didn't put I the grams for flour in the recipe. I actually had to look up another naan bread recipe to figure it out. 

    And maybe it might be important to point out to people to do the naan bread first as it takes up to two hours to rise.

    anyway I can't wait to cook it again. It's delicious  tmrc_emoticons.)
