  3. Take the dough out and make medium sized balls. (I made 12 naans with this dough.)
  4. Roll the balls as you roll a roti, a little thicker, on a well floured surface.
  5. Heat up the tawa, turn the heat to medium low.
  6. Place the naan on the tawa and cover with a lid for a while.The naan will start fluffing up.
