recipe for naan bread

This is a recipe I copied out of A Taste of India, by Roz Denny, copyright 1994. It's a children's cookbook--there's a series of them (we also had out A Taste of China at one point.


3 1/3 cups flour (and extra for rolling and kneading)
1 1/3 tablespoons yeast
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon whole cumin seeds
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
2/3 cup plain, natural yoghurt
1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons melted butter
oil for pan


Sift flour into big bowl.
Add yeast, salt, seed.
Add yoghurt, water, butter.
Mix, then turn out and knead (I end up adding a fair amount of flour so it won't be sticky)

Let rise until doubled: 2-4 hours
Punch down, knead, divide into pieces.
Roll out each piece.

Brush oil on both sides*, cook in hot skillet.

*I never do this--instead I put the oil in the skillet. Se itsalouwelylife's suggestions, though.
