2 cups flour
1 tsp yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
pinch baking soda
2 tbsp oil
2 1/2 tbsp yogurt
3/4 cup lukewarm water
Mix yeast with water and pinch of sugar and let it sit for 10 minutes until the mixture is frothy.
Add sugar, salt and baking soda to the flour and mix well.
Add oil, yogurt, yeast to make a soft dough. When the dough rises it will become more soft.
Cover the dough and keep in a warm place for 3 to 4 hours to double in volume.
Knead the dough again make six parts. Roll into 8" oval shapes, if needed dust flour or oil to roll the dough.
Preheat the pizza stone at 500F, turn the broiler on.
Before putting the Naan in the oven, lightly wet hands and take the rolled Naan flip between the palms and place onto pizza stone, so the naan is a little wet.
Bake the naan for 2 to 3 minutes till the naan puff up and is golden brown. If needed, turn the other side using tongs for another minute if it isn't golden on top. Don't over bake as the naan will get too crispy and tops might get burnt.
The pizza stone must be very hot so before putting the next batch wait for about 2 minutes for it to become hot.
Rub butter or ghee, butter mixed with garlic, onions, sesame seeds or onion seeds for flavours before putting in the oven or after taking it out. Serve naans hot with butter chicken.
Thank you for the questions. Updated: If you don't own a pizza stone, use a heavy bottom baking dish.
I have also used tin foil cookie sheets before, put the oven on the highest heat. The amount of time it will be in the oven might be a little longer than above, and you might have to flip it.
