Begin by combining water, sugar, and yeast in a bowl. Allow the mixture to sit for 5–10 minutes until it starts bubbling on top.

Next, add milk, yogurt, oil, minced garlic, flour, baking powder, and salt to the bowl. Mix everything together until the dough comes together, using your hands.

Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead it with floured hands until it becomes smooth, typically taking 3 to 5 minutes.

Lightly grease the same mixing bowl with a small spray of cooking oil to prepare for the naan.

Place the dough back into the greased bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Allow it to rest at room temperature for approximately an hour, until it doubles in size.
