An Indian Affair – Wholemeal Naan Bread served with Butter Chicken

When I decided to take a career break more than 5 months ago, one of my favourite ‘Stay at home Mum’ task is the privilege of being able to explore the different type of home cook food in the multi-racial country that I am staying. 

Indian food has always been one of my family favourite cuisine hence I took the opportunity to self-learn where possible with the help of ready to be cooked paste found in the supermarket. 

Tonight for dinner, decided to whip up a simple yet nutritious Indian dinner.

  3. Add in the chicken and stir-fry for 5 minutes
  4. Add in the water and cook for 10 minutes till chicken is cook
  5. Add in the yogurt and cook for another 5 minutes
