The humble naan is getting an upgrade. Mumbai restaurants take it on a topsy-turvy ride with interesting fillings and toppings

From Mexico, with love
The desi naan takes a trip to Mexico with the Naantos. This indulgent dish comes topped with chicken or paneer cooked in chilli barbeque sauce and is layered with onion and cheese with a drizzle of mayo. The addition of rocket leaves works as a palate cleanser in this gooey goodie.
