Madhuri.Dixit's picture
  Active dry yeast 2 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Warm water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Sugar 2 Teaspoon
  Milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (At Room Temperature)
  Plain low fat yogurt 10 Tablespoon, whisked
  Egg 1 , beaten
  Unsalted butter 2 Tablespoon, melted
  All purpose flour 4 1⁄2 Cup (72 tbs) (Extra Flour For Dusting)
  Baking powder 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Vegetable oil 2 Tablespoon

Mix the yeast, warm water, and sugar in a bowl and let stand for 3-4 minutes until it becomes frothy.
Mix together the milk, yogurt, egg, and melted butter, and set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Make a well in the center and add the yeast and the milk mixtures.
Fold together all the ingredients, then knead until smooth.
Cover the bowl tightly with foil or plastic wrap and leave it in a warm place for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the dough has almost doubled its initial volume.
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Divide the dough into eight equal portions and shape each one into a round ball.
Work with one portion at a time, keeping the rest covered with a damp cloth or plastic wrap.
Take one round, flatten it slightly with your fingertips, and roll it out on a floured pastry board with a rolling pin.
Pull one edge to give the naan a tear shape, which should be about 10 inches long and about 6 inches wide at the widest point.
Brush the top surface with a little oil or melted butter and place on a greased baking sheet.
Roll all the naans, then bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes.
Wrap in napkins to keep warm, and serve hot.
