Naan Bites with Makhani Dip

 Totally “desi” and scrumptious dip to relish with mini naan bites. Dip is basically sauce of Paneer Butter Masala skipping the paneer. Quick snack to impress your guests when dip and mini naans (either homemade or store-bought) are handy.  


  1. I have used whole wheat flour to make these mini naans. You can follow recipe here and take half the quantity of the dough, which in turn will give you 30 mini naan bites . You can also go for store-bought mini naans
  2. You can prepare the Makhani Dip and Naan in advance and your snack will be ready in mins.
