Butter Naan is a popular variety of Indian bread. It's made from refined flour, yeast, yogurt, and sprinkled with sesame seeds. After baking in a tandoor, it is usually coated with butter to give it its distinct rich taste. Butter Naan is traditionally served hot and is a staple food item in many households. It pairs well with most main dishes, especially those with thick gravies like Paneer Butter Masala or Dal Makhani.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix together the oil, butter, milk, and yogurt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.
Knead the mixer until it forms a soft, slightly sticky dough.
Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for at least two hours.
After the rest period, divide the dough into equal-sized balls.
Preheat your tandoor or oven. Dust each dough ball with a little flour and roll them out into a thin naan shape. Sprinkle some sesame seeds if you want.
Bake each naan for about 2-3 minutes, or until it puffs up and has a golden color.
After removing from the tandoor or oven, brush each naan with melted butter. Serve hot.
