There's something about the distinctive texture of naan that makes it so satisfying. This is why many of us prefer pairing our gravies and sabzi with naan rather than rotis or parathas. One way to enjoy naan, even more, is to add yummy stuffing inside it. This is similar to how you make stuffed kulchas. And one of the most popular filling choices is good old paneer! The best thing about paneer is not only its texture but also its versatility. You can combine it with many other ingredients to make different versions of stuffed naan.
