No measures given here.

Refined Flour ( Maida)
Dry yeast
Curd – 4-5 tbsp
Milk – ¼ cup
Garlic – finely chopped – 4 nos ( optional)
Mint – few leaves – finely chopped ( optional)
Coriander leaves – finely chopped (optional)
Salt to taste.

Sprinkle yeast in warm water. Add a little sugar ( ½ tsp). Keep for about 10-15 mins. You should see some bubbly activity here.
Take flour, add curd, milk, salt and make a soft dough with the yeast mixture.
Cover and keep ( if required in a damp cloth) in a warm place for an hour.
The dough will double.
Punch down the dough.
Make small balls. Dip in flour and roll into naan like shapes
Heat a tava ( griddle) and roast the naan.
Add a little fat if you wish.

I even rolled out a small ball rolled it out and filled it with some potato curry and folded it and rolled it out again.  So there is a stuffed naan - the one on the right in the picture above.
