Naan is a traditional north indian bread which is made in coal fired clay kilns called tandoors.. i have bought some domestic electric / gas tandoors and have thrown them away .. here is one way you can make naans in your home using an ordinary saucepan which will work satisfactorily ..
  Maida 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Yeast 1 Teaspoon
  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Curd 2 Tablespoon
  Ghee/Butter 2 Teaspoon (For greasing)

1. In a small bowl, pour water, add sugar and stir to dissolve. Add yeast and allow in to get soaked in water for 2 minutes.
2. In a large mixing bowl, place maida and curd, using the sugar and yeast water, make a soft dough. Allow to sit and rise for at least 2 hours.

3. Take a dough ball of desired size and roll it into a roti.
4. On a heated aluminium pan, place the roti. Using a spoon, press it firmly so that it sticks to the pan. Turn the pan upside down and cook on direct low flame, until the naan is cooked.
