* 1 tbs oil ( veg or olive)
* salt to taste

# Mix well
# Add your oil and yogurt and mix well
# Dissolve the yeast in warm water and let it sit for 2 mins
# Mix the yeast water into your flour and kead well ( Make it a bread dough like consistency and just a little bit sticky. but not too dry, add more water if needed)
# Let it sit for 3-4 hours ( i leave it for about 4 hours)
# Knead your dough again for a min or two
# Divide your dough into 6 parts
# Make the parts into ball shapes and coat it with flour ( makes it easier to roll)
# Sprinkle some chopped garlic on to the ball ( you can use, cumin, cilantro, poppy seeds, mustard seeds, almonds, pistachios etc..)
# Using a rolling pin, roll your balls into a chapati shape ( dont roll it too thin)
# now sprinkle little water on top side of the chapati and place it on the thava and cook.
#change the side and cook next too so that both sides are cooked well and apply some butter on both sides
# Preserve in foil to keep it warm
# Repeat the process until you have baked all of your naan's
# Serve with chutney, dry curries or veggies... eat plain if you like.
