Making soft buttery Naan

This is an Indian bread mostly served in restaurants and goes well with Indian curry dishes (especially paneer dishes)

What you need:
Maida 2 cups
Active dry yeast 1 spoon
Oil 2 spoons
Yogurt 1/4 cup
Water 1/2 cup (lukewarm)
Butter 1 spoon
Salt 1 spoon
Sugar 1/2 spoon

1) Dissolve dry yeast and sugar in water and set it aside for 10 mins (it should become frothy)
2) Add salt, oil and yogurt to Maida and mix well
3) Add yeast mixture to Maida mixture and knead until it forms a soft dough
4) Cover the dough with moist paper/towel and keep in warm place - start empty microwave for 2-3 mins and leave the mixture in the microwave after it stops
5) Preheat oven to the highest temp
6) Make small balls from the dough and flatten into either oval or triangular shape.
7) Place one at a time in over for 2-3mins. Turn around and leave for another min
8) Serve with butter on top of naan

You can also garnish with cilantro
