What happens when someone who lives abroad tries desi khaana for the first time? Well, some of them get overwhelmed by the spices, some people call it boring, while others are absolutely gobsmacked by the party of flavors exploding in their mouth. Something like the latter happened when Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian tried garlic naan recently which prompted him to tweet about it.
Whoever invented garlic naan is a goddamn hero.

Needless to say, Twitter replied with the best accompaniments to garlic naan to further enhance the flavour – butter chicken, cheese, mint chutney, tadka dal etc.
Dude. If it’s the hero, then heroine for this dish is Indian Butter chicken 🍗.

Wait till you try Cheese Garlic Naan, sir

You should try Garlic Cheese Naan with Mint sauce and tandoori baked chicken on the side! It’s da bomb. It’s very popular in Malaysia, somehow my India origin friend never had garlic cheese naan before. I guess the locals modify the naan according to their taste! pic.twitter.com/8yKVQoQ0RJ

Many offered more lip-smacking suggestions like aloo parantha, onion kulcha, Peshawari naan, butter rumali roti etc.
Also worth trying… Laccha paratha

Try some south Indian “parotta” next time. pic.twitter.com/z2LsSZC5la

Try aloo parathas. They are also scrumptious.

And the inventor of the spinach and cheese naan is a god.

Try onion kulcha and paneer paratha pic.twitter.com/choml2yNUE

Just wait till you discover Butter Rumali Roti. You’ll treat him/her like a god.

Onion kulcha is even better

Have you tried Peshwari naan? 😋
— Henry Joseph-Grant (@speirin) February 12, 2021
And looks like he has found what he wants to try next – South-Indian parotta.
This looks amazing. https://t.co/Xkj1wawuqn
