Green Lentil & Coconut Curry with Naam Bread

I had a nice relaxing day off and I was totally in the mood to spend a couple hours in the kitchen prepping a meal for when my BFF Beth came over. I decided I wanted to attempt Naam Bread to complete my ‘year of bread’. I still have a lot more to go in my bread education but I feel that I definitely made some headway this year.

I found this easy recipe and WOW. I now know that the secret to Naam Bread deliciousness is in the garlic and onion powder. I didn’t have bread flour but regular flour seemed to work just fine. However, although the dough was insanely easy to make, frying it up on a fan created some major smoke (the alarm went off). The excess flour ended up burning in the pan. They still tasted amazing but I might try it on medium heat next time to avoid the aggressive smoke.

Next up I made this recipe for Chickpea Masala. I’ve made this dish before (not this recipe) on this blog and to be honest I wasn’t super impressed with the taste (a little bland) but thought I’d share the photo anyways. Although to be fair, I improvised on some of the spices a bit but it didn’t really punch you in the face with flavour.

But things did get interesting with the Green Lentil & Coconut Curry (recipe from here) and you can totally play around with the flavour by adding extra chili flakes, cilantro, lime juice, or even shredded coconut.

I didn’t have tomato paste (I used tomato sauce) so it was thinner than it was supposed to be but it was still really hearty.
