Unplug your bread machine and remove the bread pan.
Add the water, yogurt, butter and then the rest of the ingredients into the bread pan. You can make a little indent on top of the flour in order to avoid the yeast falling into the water (until the machine starts). Do not combine the salt with the yeast (as the salt can kill the yeast). Place the yeast & salt in separate parts of the bread pan.
Place the bread pan (with ingredients) into the bread machine and then plug in the machine.
Put your machine on the Dough setting and press the start button. In our Sunbeam bread machine, the kneading & rising on the dough setting takes about approximately 1:30 hours.
When your bread machine has finished, unplug the machine & pour the naan dough onto a cutting board. Wear oven mitts (as the bread pan/bread machine may be hot).
Sprinkle some flour on the cutting board (before you pour out the naan dough) in order to avoid the naan dough sticking to the cutting board.
Divide & shape the naan dough into fist-sized balls. You should be able to make roughly 8-10 balls of dough.
Sprinkle a little flour on the balls to prevent sticking.
Use a rolling pin to roll the dough balls flat. Try to create flat circles or ovals from the dough that are roughly 1/4 inch high. However, irregular naan shapes are okay too!!
I like to roll out one dough ball at time and then fry each one separately (versus rolling all 8-10 balls at once and then frying later).
Heat a frying pan with low/medium heat and melt a thin tab of butter on the frying pan.
Place the flattened naan dough on top of the melted butter in the frying pan.
Flip the naan frequently with a metal spatula in order to brown the naan evenly (and avoid burning the naan). The frying should only take 1-3 minutes per naan (depending on the level of heat used).
Add more butter to the frying pan when you fry each new naan.
Place the naan on a wire cooling rack for a minute to cool down slightly.
Serve while naan still warm.
