Make a well in the flour, pour 240 ml/1 cup water and the milk, sugar and yogurt mixture. Mix well. Knead to make a dough. Cover with moist cloth and keep aside for 10 minutes. Add oil and knead again to make the dough absorb the oil. Cover with moist cloth and keep aside for 2 hours, till dough rises. Divide the dough into 6 balls, flatten balls and sprinkle nigella and melon seeds. Cover and set aside for 5 minutes. Roll and flatten each ball between your palms. Stretch dough to one side to give the naan an elongated shape. Using oven gloves or a cushion pad stick the naan inside a moderately hot tandoor for 3 minutes. Alternatively, place the naan on a greased tray and bake in an oven for 10 minutes at 375 ºF.
