Activate the yeast: Add the yeast, sugar and water to the bowl of a stand mixer, or a mixing bowl if you are not using a stand mixer. Let the yeast activate for approximately 5 minutes, or until it has started to froth and foam.
2 teaspoon Active dry yeast, 1 cup Water, 2 teaspoon Sugar
Mix the dough: Add the remaining ingredients to the stand mixer bowl, or mixing bowl, and mix using the dough hook attachment until the ingredients have combined and a dough has formed. If mixing by hand, knead the dough for an extra 3-5 minutes. The dough will be a little bit sticky at this point - don't be alarmed.
3 ¼ cups All purpose flour, 2 teaspoon Sea salt, ⅓ cup Whole milk, 2 ½ tablespoon Olive oil, 2 tablespoon Greek yogurt, 2 teaspoon Garlic powder
Proof the dough: Place the dough in an oiled bowl, and cover with plastic wrap in a warm place for 35 minutes.
Form balls: Once the dough has risen, punch it down and split into 6 even-sized pieces. Roll the pieces into balls with your hands, and arrange on a sheet tray. Cover with plastic wrap again for another 20 minutes.
Roll out naan: Once the dough balls have risen, press down on the balls on a floured surface. Roll out each dough ball into an oval shape. Roll the dough thinner than you'd like the naan, as it will puff up as it cooks.
Preheat tawa: Heat up a tawa [or cast iron skillet] on medium heat.
Cook the naan: Sprinkle and spread water on one side of the naan dough, and place the naan on the tawa water side down. Do not lift the naan once you have placed it on the tawa.
Brown the naan: Once the naan starts bubbling, flip the tawa over while holding it, so the other side of the naan is directly exposed to to the gas flame. Keep i the tawa over the flame until the naan is charred and bubbles have formed.
Finish: Spread butter and minced garlic on top of the naan, and sprinkle with kalonji. Using a spatula or a knife, remove the naan from the tawa, and repeat with the remaining dough balls.
2 tablespoon Salted butter, 1 tablespoon Minced garlic, 1 tablespoon Kalonji [nigella seeds]
