I took this recipe from "Show me the curry" blog. I must say that naan is came out perfect! Just like it should be.
You can make it plain or with seeds of your choice.
My dough was little bit to watery so I had to add more flour.

 Ingredients (original Show me the curry recipe):

All Purpose Flour 2 cups (275 g)
Salt – 1 tsp
Oil – 4 tsp
Warm Water – 1/2 cup
Rapid Rise Yeast – 1 tsp
Sugar – 1 tsp
Egg – 1, medium, well beaten (or 1 Tbsp Flaxseed powder mixed with 3 Tbsp of water can be used as a substitute for egg)
Yogurt – 2 Tbsp
Additional All Purpose Flour for rolling and dusting
1. Add Yeast and Sugar to warm Water and mix well. Cover and keep it aside for 5-7 minutes (until foamy).
2. In a large bowl, mix Flour and Salt well.
3. Add Oil and mix until there are no lumps.
4. Once Yeast and Water mixture becomes foamy, add Yogurt and Egg. Whisk until mixed well.
5. Add the mixture to the Flour a little at a time and knead into a soft dough ball.
6. Drizzle a few drops of Oil on the dough and cover to that a “skin” does not form.
7. Cover and keep in a warm place for 1 hour. You can preheat the oven to 170 degrees F and turn the oven off and keep dough inside.
8. Preheat Oven to highest temperature possible (approx 550 degrees F/ 288 degrees C) with Pizza Stone inside. Once dough has risen, lightly oil hands and punch down the dough and knead. Dust with additional flour if needed.
9. Divide dough into small portions and roll it out on a floured surface. Keep rolled naan aside on a tray.
10. Place 3-4 rolled naan onto hot Pizza Stone and place stone on the highest oven rack.
11. Bake for 3-5 minutes until naan are light golden brown.
12. Remove from oven and smear on butter (optional).
13. Keep naan in an insulated container until ready to serve. Best served fresh and hot.
Makes – 8 avg size naans.
