Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into large bowl. Stir in the beaten egg, yogurt and melted butter (ghee).

Lightly grease bowl and cover with a damp cloth and rest in a warm place for 2 hours.
Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees. Knead dough on a floured surface, for 2-3 minutes, until smooth.
Divide into 8, even pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and then roll out flat, into thick oval shapes.
Grease a baking sheet with oil and brush both sides of the rolled out Naan with oil.
Sprinkle, one side with poppy or nigella seed. Place the Naan on greased baking tray and bake for 6-10 minutes, until puffy and lightly golden brown.
The Naan bread will brown on the sides and puff slightly.
