Naan

Ingredients:
1 cup warm water
1 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons plain yogurt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
about 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Directions:
Place the warm water in a medium sized bowl. Add the sugar to the water, and then sprinkle the yeast on top of the water and sugar. Mix lightly together and let sit for 10 minutes.
Add the flour and salt and mix well. Then, add yogurt and unsalted butter and mix until a dough forms. Knead this dough until it is smooth.
Place the dough in a large greased bowl and cover with a damp towel. Place in a warm place (I always prefer a spot in the sun) and let rise for about 2 hours.
Once the dough has risen, place on a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes. Divide the dough into about 6 balls before rolling into circles.
Lightly grease a small skillet with a little bit of the melted butter. Grease both sides of all of the rolled out balls with the butter before placing on the skillet. Let each side of the dough cook until it becomes a light brown color.
