Do you ever get that emotion about dishes which are very easy, and you love them so much, and want to have them at any time of the day? Well, I get the same feeling about this ‘Indian Paneer Stuffed Naan’.

Well, I have got plenty of reasons to love this:

  1. I love any type of naan.
  2. I love all types of paneer meals.
  3. It focuses on my two main favorites, so I just can’t resist it.
  4. I don’t necessarily need a curry for scooping these naans. I can make it a meal in itself and have it with some plain yogurt or even have it without anything.
  5. I can have them in any season on any day. They’re just SO GOOD.
  6. It’s buttery, spicy, and filled with some paneer — so this is one of my ultimate comfort foods.
  7. If you want to distract me, then you can offer me a paneer stuffed naan. Then I would easily be distracted, and this is a tried and tested method by little A. She always uses it as a weapon by offering me a pretend paneer stuffed naan which she makes in her toy kitchen.
  8. You can have this naan as a side bread, or you can even make it an entire meal. This can make a wonderful protein-rich breakfast meal for a meatless Monday or any other day of your choice.
  9. Whenever I have leftover naan dough I try to make stuff naans with them, paneer stuffing is my favorite. It’s kind of a perfect comfy food.

Alright, so what makes this naan so good and so perfect?

  1. A good quality of fresh paneer (preferably homemade).
  2. Lots of onions and cilantro. These are the two star ingredients which make this naan so sizzling and tempting.
  3. You can also add mint here.
  4. Some basic leftover or fresh naan dough works best for these stuffed naans.
  5. For me, a generous amount of butter or ghee on top of these impressive flatbreads is a must. As soon as I make this Paneer Naan, I top it with a dollop of butter. This is the best way to relish this mildly spicy naan.
  6. Serve it with any of your favorite curries, I personally like to serve it with dal makhani or  Matar Paneer. And if you want a lighter meal, then simply serve it with some raita and pickle. Make it as a side for guests and I am sure that everyone will love it.

Are you excited to try this naan? Then you can also try making an excellent Indian curry to go with this paneer naan.
