Garlic Naan - My (Bread) Love!

I love carbs (and it shows too..hehe!). There is 101% chance of me ordering garlic naan in any north Indian restaurant irrespective of what's the curry. It has garlic and carbs. It's one of those 'Why not!' recipes.
( 'Why Not?' - If there is nothing bad in the ingredients, the final outcome has to be good! Why won't it be good!)

1/8 teaspoon of Dried Yeast.
1 cup all purpose flour.
1 teaspoon sugar.
salt to taste.
1 teaspoon crushed garlic.
1/2 teaspoon of onion seeds
Chopped coriander for garnishing.
Butter ( If you are really happy about something!)
1 cup Warm water.
1/2 cup yogurt.

How to make-
1. Add yeast to the warm water and keep aside for a while. You would notice a brownish looking froth in 10 minutes ( I know it does not look that appetizing)
2. Add sugar and salt to the yeast and water mixture. This stops the fermentation process.
3. Add flour to the mixture and kneed the dough. It is not going to be a normal dough. It's going to be sticky.
Add yogurt and continue kneading.
4. Cover the dough with a plastic wrap and keep aside for 10 minutes.
5. The dough would rise and become almost doubt in 10 minutes. Kneed it again removing as much air as you can and cover again for 10 minutes.
7. Moist your palms with a few drops of oil or warm water. This would prevent the dough from sticking to your palm.
8. Make the oval shaped naan on your hand ( You don't need to roll it).
9. Preheat the oven at 300 degrees. Spray cooking oil on the baking sheet and place the naan on it.
10. Add the crushed garlic, onion seeds and coriander on the naan. Push the garlic little in the dough before putting it in the oven.
11. Cook for 10 minutes. Check in between to make sure your naan are not turning into toasts.
12. Remove from oven and cool for 2-3 minute. Spread the butter on the naan and enjoy with your favorite curry.
