Avocado Garlic Naan

Naan is a flat bread that has many varieties & is adapted, modified based on the local cuisine. You can tweak the dish according to your taste buds wish. The varieties include few of these plain naan, stuffed naan, butter naann.. etc. Here is a avocado garlic naan I experimented mixing two different flours & loved it. It is not a stuffed naan but I modified the basic naan by adding the avocado pulp, which gave a creamy taste to the dish.
