Naan bread is a traditional Indian dish, which is generally cooked in a special Indian tandoor oven. As far as this device is not available in all the houses, cooking it on a hooded gas barbeque is a nice choice. The bread should be served hot, preferably, with other Indian or Asian dishes. It is an ideal addition to chicken, curries, kebabs and other meat dishes.
