Garlic Naan~Secret recipe club challenge 21st Sept 2015

This is my assignment with the Secret Recipe Club.The aim of the club is that you are allocated a blog from which you have to select a recipe and try it and blog about it. For the month of September my assigned blog is Picnic written by Nicole who is a neuroscience researcher and is a keen photographer. Looking through her log was fun and I really liked the garlic naan bread recipe which I have selected for the secret club challenge. The recipe turned out perfect.
