Naan is an Indian flat bread or leavened bread

I have made Naan before also but this time it came out very well. It was soft and yummy with butter on top. I think a longer rising time gives it a better flavour and a great texture.

2 cups - All Purpose flour
1 tsp active dry yeast ( leavening agent)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2tsp - baking soda
2 tablespoons - canola oil
2 1/2 tablespoons yogurt (curd or dahi)
3/4 cup lukewarm water

1). Dissolve dry yeast and sugar in luke warm water ,stir it and cover it and let it stand for 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
2). Take flour,add salt ,baking soda,yogurt and oil and then add dissolved mixture of sugar and yeast and kned the dough. (The dough should be soft and elastic).
3). Cover the dough with plastic sheet and keep it for 3-4 minutes to rise ,so that it becomes double in volume.
4). When you are ready to make it, heat the oven to 500degrees for 20 minutes and then turn the oven to broil.
5). Take the dough,knead it for 2 minutes. Divide the dough into portions and with the help of a rolling pin roll into oval shape.
6). Grease the cookie tray/ baking tray and place the naan on the tray and bake it (It will take 2-3 minutes to cook and it should be golden brown)
7). Take out the naan and brush it with butter.
8). ENJOY!!!!!

*To make panner soft ,put it in the warm water for 5 minutes and it becomes soft.
*Frying panner takes out all the nutritive values and also it is not healthy, so try to use it raw without frying.
* You can also grind tomatoes,onions,ginger garlic paste before adding to the butter.
