flour - 2 cups
milk - 1 cup (warm)
curd - 2 tbsp
yeast - 1 tsp
sugar - 1 tsp
butter - 2tbsp
salt to taste

- mix sugar, milk and yeast and mix well
- allow that to prove by leaving them to rest for 10 mins
- mix well
- now mix the curd, flour and salt and mix well
- add the yeast mixture and mix well
- and make a sticky dough
- now close the dough with a wet cloth and allow that to rest and prove for 2 hrs
- the dough will be double the size
- make balls out of the dough
- dust them with flour and roll them into 1/2" thick roti
- you will need a tava which has to be heated
- when the tava is warm, add the rolled nan and allow that to get bubbles
- now add that half cooked nan on the direct fire and allow that to cook for 10 - 15 seconds
- after removing the nan from fire, apply butter and serve.

I have not used a grill or a tandoor. I felt this way was too good and easy.
