WHY WE EAT LUNCH Apart from being sociable and providing a natural break to a busy day, lunch provides the energy needed to sustain us throughout the afternoon without pulling on the body's reserves. Lunch should help keep our blood sugar level - the body's fuel system which draws on glucose -stable. If we skip lunch, our blood sugar level drops and we become irritable, sluggish and lose concentration.

Add the dry yeast and sugar to the warm water and stir till the yeast is dissolved. Cover and leave aside for 10 minutes or until the mixture begins to froth. This indicates the yeast is active. Keep aside. Mix the flour and salt to taste and sift through a very fine seive. Put it into a large mixing bowl and now add the yeast mixture, 3 tbsps of ghee and all the yogurt. Use your fingertips to mix all this into a soft dough. Once mixed, flour a clean, flat surface (like your kitchen counter) and knead the dough till it is smooth and stretchy (elastic). Cover and allow to rest for about 90 minutes or till the dough doubles in volume. Punch the dough down and knead again for 10 minutes. Equally divide the dough and roll between your palms to form balls. Lightly flour the same surface on which you kneaded the dough and roll out each ball until you have a circle, 7-8 inches in diameter (1/2 "thick). Gently pull on one edge of the circle to form the Naan into a teardrop shape. Preheat your oven 200 C/ 400 F or Gas Mark 6. Lay a piece of aluminum foil in an oven tray (to cover) and grease it lightly with a few drops of cooking oil. Put the tray into the oven and cook till the Naan begins to puff out and get lightly brown. Flip the Naan and repeat. Remove from oven and serve hot in a foil-lined basket.
