For making the naan dough, pour the warm water into a large bowl. Whisk in the yeast and half of the flour, mix, and cover the bowl.
Leave the mixture in a warm place for 30 minutes. Stir in the yogurt and then add the rest of the flour, salt, and baking powder.
Mix with your hands to form a soft and sticky dough. Spoon 2 teaspoon of the melted ghee or butter and then rub it over the dough.
Roughly squeeze the dough a few times, cover the bowl with cling film, and leave it to rise for another 15 minutes.
Pour another 1 teaspoon of melted ghee or butter onto the dough and then rub it lightly all over with your fingertips.
Knead the dough for another 30 seconds, cover it with a clean kitchen cloth, and leave it for 15 minutes to rise in a warm place.
Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces, roll them into balls, lightly dust with flour, and leave for 5 minutes before shaping.
Lightly flour the balls and turn them into a teardrop or oval shape (about 3 mm or ⅛“ ) using your fingers or a rolling pin.
When the pan is really hot, place the dough and cook until golden brown, and flip the dough using a tong.
Cook for another couple of minutes. Put the cooked naan on a plate and brush it with the garlic and butter mixture.
Keep them wrapped in a clean dry kitchen cloth while you roll out and continue cooking the remaining naan bread.
Sprinkle some chopped coriander or parsley on naan bread. Click on 👇"learn more" for the full recipe with step-by-step instructions.
