Combine bread flour, sugar and salt in a bowl. Whisk well.
Pour lukewarm water (I warm it to 60°C), yeast and yogurt into a measuring cup. Stir well.
Now pour this yogurt mixture into the flour bowl and knead until dough forms. Then add butter and knead some more.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to double in size at room temperature. If you are in a hurry, you could speed it by placing over a double broiler or in your oven.
Divide the dough into 6 portions and let rest for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 200°C.
Roll the dough to 2 mm thin and bake in the oven for 7 minutes. Alternatively, you could cook both sides of the naan using a frying pan. Even better!
Story Behind this Recipe
The naan from the local shop is mediocre, so I always make this recipe at home. I am still trying to make an even more delicious naan!
This recipe has got more sugar than normal bread, but the taste will be less sweet than you think. Please add more bread flour if your dough is too sticky, as it depends on the flour and yogurt. However, the ideal dough is slightly sticky! I recommend you cook this naan on a frying pan rather than the oven!
