Indian Naan bread

Can anyone help me with a recipe for Indian nan bread to go with my chicken tikka?

Thanks in advance, Graham.

I will rise in perfect light

Naan Bread
15g or ½ oz fresh yeast or 1 sachet dried yeast + ½ tsp sugar.
250 ml/8oz warm milk
500g/1 lb plain flour
½ tsp salt
11/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsps oil
4 tbsps plain yoghurt
Stir the yeast into the warm milk adding sugar if using dried yeast. Leave dried yeast mixture in a warm place about 10 mins to become frothy.
Mix the remaining dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Stir in the oil, yoghurt and yeast liquid.
Work into a dough.
Turn onto a floured surface and knead for about 10 mins until the dough is smooth, elastic, and no longer sticky.
Return the dough to a warm bowl. Cover with oiled cling film and leave to prove for ablout 1 hour in a warm place until doubled in size.
Punch down the dough and when thoroughly kneaded divide into 6 pieces.
Roll into oval shapes and place on baking sheets.
Pre heat the grill.
Cook each naan bread under a hot grill 2 to 3 mins on each side until well puffed.
When I made this I added some coriander to the dry ingredients. You could add chilli powder if you wished.
