Author Notes: I saw this recipe at my mother law’s old diary at lest it 34 year old and she used to make this for her children and I ask her to make some naan and I took some excellent picture ..This typical naan recipe involves mixing white flour with salt, a yeast culture, and enough yogurt to make a smooth, elastic dough. The dough is kneaded for a few minutes, then set aside to rise for a few hours. Once risen, the dough is divided into balls which are flattened and cooked. In Pakistani cuisine, naans are typically graced with fragrant essences, such as rose, khus with butter or ghee melted on them. Nigella seeds are commonly added in Naan Breads as cooked in Indian
Today we had naan with hot pork vindaloo

Lovely as always, pauljoseph. I'm going to teach my students to make this on Monday to serve with a 3-rice salad.

A question: I have some freshly made ricotta. Could we use that in place of the yogurt for the curd?

Is 'Maida' atta flour? and by curd I am assuming you mean yoghurt ( hope so since that is what I have going)
