And... if you are brave... you can make your own naan breads:

2 tsp dry active yeast
r tbsp warm milk
2 tsp sugar
1lb / 4 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
half tsp salt
quarter pint / two thirds cup of milk
quarter pint / two thirds cup low fat natural yogurt, beaten
1 beaten egg
1 tbsp veg oil
oil for greasing
Optional (but yummy) several cloves of garlic sliced thinly longways.

1. Mix the yeast, warm milk and sugar and leave to become frothy. Sift the flour, baking powder and walkt. Make a well in the middle and fold in the yeast, milk, yoghurt, egg and oil.

2. Knead the dough well. Tightly cover the bowl and keep in a warm place until the dough doubles in size. To test, push a finger in to the dough - it should spring back.

3. Turn on the oven to 200c / 400f / gas 6.

4. Roll out the dough on a floured surface making each naan tear-shaped.

5. If using sprinkle with the slivered garlic, then place on a lightly greased baking tray (trays) and bake for 10 to 15 mins until lightly golden round the edges. DON'T OVERCOOK. If you overcook them you can build houses with them.
