  1. Tip the flour, yeast, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Gently warm the milk and water until finger hot. Then add to the bowl along with the yogurt. Stir until the mixture comes together then turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for 10 minutes until elastic and smooth (you can speed up the process using a dough hook in a food mixer). Lightly oil the bowl and then place the dough inside and cover with clingfilm. Leave until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  2. Tip the pistachios, raisins and coconut into a small blender and pulse to a coarse powder.
  3. Punch down the risen dough, knocking out all the air, turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for 1 minute more. Divide the dough into 6 pieces. Shape each piece of dough into a ball. Use your thumb to make a large dent in each ball and put a little of the pistachio mixture inside. Then use your fingers to seal. Roll out the dough to form a teardrop, roughly 20 cm x 10 cm wide.
  4. Heat the grill to its highest setting. Place a large baking sheet under the grill and heat for 5 minutes. Carefully place the naans onto the baking sheet and cook in 2 batches under the grill for 2-3 minutes on each side until lightly puffed and browned. Brush with melted butter, if you like, to serve.
