I am way too excited about this oh-so original bread recipe, it taste just like butter chicken. So maybe it has something to do with my pregnancy cravings, just maybe. But most importantly, this is the perfect side snack for a veggie curry or soup (something along the lines of a carrot or sweet potatoe soup!)
