Hello Stephanie, good day, 'curd' is 'yoghurt' in American vocabulary.

Usha, what is the ingredient 'Fresh Curd' please?

This recipe is an excellent recipe and I used BBQ grill to make naan and the results were great...

Hi Usha you must be an expert at this. For the rest of us lesser mortals I suggest using a tava. Wet the surface and place the naan till it sticks, then turn it over the gas flame, first on high then lower the flame. I've seen my maid making naans this way. So give it a try.

The pressure cooker explained. Cooker has an open end. Put oil on the inside surface of cooker from open end. The naan is stuck to the inside wall of cooker thru open end. Next the cooker is put on gas flame with the open end on the flame. INVERTED. So the gas is heating the cooker from the open end upwards and inside. Hope this helps.
