Naan is a leavened Indian flatbread with soft spongy texture and usually oven baked/ tandoor. Naan can be easily prepared at home on tawa with or without yeast but still have have texture like this recipe which I posted earlier WHOLE WHEAT NAAN (without yeast). Naan comes in many varieties/ with variations like butter naan, garlic naan, kashmiri naan and my newly found Italian herbs naan and so on.

  2. Now in a bowl add flour, salt and yeast mixture. Combine everything well and knead into soft dough and allow it to rest for 2 to 3 hours so that it doubles in size. I added 1/2 cup water to make sot dough. The measurement depends on the quality of flour so it might differ.
