Zucchini flat bread naan, is a favourite treat. Zucchini which is called ‘ Kadoo’ makes main roll in keeping the bread soft and moist. It is a beautiful combo of zucchini with onions, cheese and spices. I have used mozzarella cheese, but it goes well with feta or cheddar cheese too. These are Sooooooo good. Sooooooo delicious and hearty naan bread.
