Two hours later, some of that dough will be cooked up into light and fluffy Naan Bread to eat with our freshly prepared Indian Butter Chicken. Between starting the dough and sitting down to break bread together, Amber will share some other types of bread you can make with your dough and then prepare Indian Butter Chicken with the class.
