 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2   c            Yogurt
      1/2   c            Milk
      1/2   ts           Baking soda
    1       t            Sugar
    4       tb           Butter/oleo
    2       ea           Eggs, lightly beaten
    3       pk           Dry yeast (1 pack oz)
    3       c            White flour
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/2   ts           Poppy seed
 
   Warm yogurt and stir in milk, until thoroughly mixed.
   Remove from heat.
   
   Add baking soda, sugar, 2 tbs butter/oleo, eggs and
   dry yeast.
   
   Sift together the flour and salt.  Make a well in the
   flour and gradually add the yogurt mixture.
   
   Knead the flour 15 to 20 mins until smooth and
   elastic.  Brush dough with some of the remaining
   butter/oleo.  Cover with a warm, damp cloth and set
   aside in a warm place for 3 hours until the dough had
   risen to twice its size.
   
   Dust hands with flour.  Knead the dough again for a
   few mins and divide into 8 balls.  Roll each ball into
   a 10-in pancake.  Pull each pancake gently to give it
   an oval shape.  Cover with damp cloth 20 mins.
   
   Heat a griddle until very hot.  Mix the remaining 2
   tbs butter/oleo with poppy seed.  Brush one side of
   each nan with the mixture and the other side with warm
   water.
   
   Place the warm-water side on the griddle for 1/2
   minute.  Remove from the griddle and place nan under
   broiler for about 2 mins.  Serve with curries and
   tandoori dishes.
