Naan is the most preferred choice when it comes to our choice in restaurants apart from Parotta. Since it is occasional we mostly select Butter Naan and a vegetarian gravy which gives a full contended meal . Trying it at home is always my dream and i think i have tried it in a tava . But this recipe involves baking in a oven and so i was impressed by it and the product was fine and good .Naan is usually made with all purpose flour and cooked in a  tandoor. A runny gravy ( vegetarian or non vegetarian ) goes well with this .

Now for the process .

Ingredients :   (Makes 8 naan )

All purpose flour – 4 cups
Milk – 1   1/4 cup
Sugar – 2 tsp
Dry Yeast – 1/4 tsp
Baking Powder – 1/2 tsp
Salt – 1/2 tsp
Egg -1 (optional)
Oil – 2 tbls
Yoghurt – 1/4 cup

Method:
1. Combine the milk, sugar. yeast in a small bowl . Stir to mix . Set aside for 15 to 20 minutes .

2. Sift the flour and baking powder in a large bowl . make a well in the center and add the salt , beaten egg, oil, yogurt and yeast mixture.

3. Mix to form a soft dough . Slightly knock it with your knuckles and make it into a pliable dough.
