  • Take half cup of milk in a bowl and microwave on high just for few seconds until it becomes little warm.
  • Add 3/4 tsp of dry active yeast, ½ tsp of sugar. 
  • Stir and cover. Let it rest for 10-15 minutes.
  • Sift 1 cup of all purpose flour or maida. 
  • Add 1 tsp of salt and 1 tbsp of yogurt. Mix well.
  • After 10 minutes the yeast will turn frothy that means it is activated.
  • Add the yeast milk little at a time in the flour and keep mixing until all flour comes together. 
  • The dough will be bit sticky but that is fine.
  • Add around ½ tbsp of olive oil and knead again.
  • Apply ½ tbsp of olive oil on top and spread it all over the dough to prevent it from drying out.
  • Cover and let it rest in warm place for at least 2 hours. If the weather is too cold at you place, you can keep the dough in an oven. In that case before keeping the dough in oven; heat the oven for 2-3 minutes on maximum temperature and then turn off. The oven will become little warm and that will help the dough to rise well.
  • After 2 hours the dough has almost tripled in size.
  • Sprinkle little flour on the dough and divide it into 6 equal parts.
  • Take one portion of the dough and dip into flour so that it doesn’t stick to your hand. Just stretch and fold to make a smooth ball. Keep them covered with kitchen towel so that they don’t form skin on top.
  • Dust the surface with some flour and roll it with rolling pin.
  • Sprinkle some kalonji or nigella seeds on you naan. (It’s optional)
  • Toss it with your hands so that it elongates a little bit.
  • Place it on a hot pan. Prick it on some places so that it doesn't puff form all sides.
  • Roast until some brown dots appear on bottom side. 
  • Then place it on a wire rack so that it get’s direct heat.
  • When you see such big bubbles on top, flip it to other side. To watch how to roast naan in detail, please refer to the video.
  • Apply some butter and serve it hot with any gravy based dish.
