This is a dish synonymous with the common Hyderabadi’s palate for the last two centuries -- soft baked maida with an earthen smell of the tandoor, best accompanied with gracious servings of lamb chops and rich chicken gravy and Paya Nihari.
I had tried to make Copycat of authentic Naan ki Roti....baked in oven!!Hyderabadi Food Lovers who are far away from their city will definitely relish this In'sha'Allaah!!
