Naan-chos: Indian Style Nachos

naan-chos-1

As promised on Sunday when I shared my easy, crock pot Tikka Masala recipe, today I will be sharing a fun way to eat it.

First off, one of my favorite things to get from Indian restaurants is naan. It’s this simple, yet amazing, flat bread that is a staple in the Indian culture. I’ve made it myself a time or two, and of course, always order it when we go out to eat. But when I discovered Stonefire sold premade Naan, I was SO excited. Ever since that discovery, you better believe we buy it on a regular basis.

The other day, I thought it would be fun to fry up the naan, and using my Tikka Masala chicken, make Naan Nachos (obviously, shortened to Naan-chos.) It seemed like a simple enough dish, that would yield tasty results.

 

And I was right! The “hardest” part was cutting up the naan into nacho-like pieces and frying them, but that was more tedious than anything. They turned out to be super yummy — my mom even liked them, and she does not like when I usually bring home some of this naan.

The toppings were simple — basmati rice and peas — two typical Indian foods,  the Tikka Masala chicken, and some Mexican Creama (though you could use Greek Yogurt, sour cream, etc.) It was really tasty, a different twist on traditional nachos, and super easy to make! Definitely not your typical Indian food, but it combines all the essentials of a good Indian dish into something kind of new!
