    For the naan, place Laucke Crusty White Bread Mix, milk, yeast, Jalna Greek Yoghurt and melted butter in the bowl of a stand mixer. Knead using a dough hook for 5-10 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Place in an oiled bowl, cover and let rest for about 1 hour in a warm place until the dough is doubled in size.

Place a spoon full of yoghurt in the side and sprinkle the yoghurt with a little of the Murray River Pastrami Spiced Salt. Serve Laucke naan and some salad on the side.
