  2. Keep stirring in the yogurt till the dough becomes hard enough for a spoon, then mix it in a bowl till it holds together well, adding more flour if necessary.
  3. Turn it out upon a floured surface and continue kneading for about 5 minutes till the dough feels smooth and elastic.
  4. Make a bowl out of dough and place it in an oiled bowl, covered with a towel, to rest for an hour or longer.
  5. Now, cut the ball into 10 equal pieces. Form each into a ball and press the balls flat into round discs.

  9. Lay it on a hot griddle and cook it over medium heat for 4-5 minutes.
  10. It will turn fluffy from all sides, and there will be some blackish-brown spots on the bottom.
  11. 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.
  12. Take out naan from the oven and brush it lightly with melted butter if you like.
