4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups plain greek yogurt
1/8 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoon minced garlic (optional)
In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in the yogurt and oil till the dough is too stiff for a spoon, then knead it in the bowl till it holds together well, adding more flour if necessary.
Turn the dough out on a floured surface and continue kneading for about 5 minutes till the dough feels smooth and elastic. Form the dough into a ball and put it in an oiled bowl, covered with a towel, to rest for an hour or longer.
Take the dough out and cut it into 10 equal pieces. Form each into a ball and press the balls flat into round discs.
Heat a large frying pan or griddle to medium and heat your oven to about 500.
Take 1 piece of dough at a time and roll it out on a floured surface till it is about 8-10 inches across and less than 1/4 inch thick.
Lay it on the hot griddle and cook it over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes (I don't think mine took that long). It will puff up in places or all over, and there will be some blackish-brown spots on the bottom. Slide a spatula under the naan and transfer it to the oven, directly onto the rack, for a minute or two, just till it finishes puffing up into a balloon and begins to color lightly on top. Remove naan from the oven and brush it lightly with melted butter if you like.
