comment What are the differences between spice paste and spice powder? Which should be preferred over the other for what reasons?
Both keep for years unopened. Once opened, paste should be refrigerated and used within a few days. Powder doesn't need refrigeration, and will keep for several months opened, gradually getting less flavoursome.

I added some text about roasting. If you doubt that roasting does anything different to frying, consider the difference in flavour between a baked potato, a boiled potato and a french fry.

@jay I edited to what I think OP meant - either baking powder or yeast, not both.

comment What are the authentic traditional ingredients for Naan bread?
I fully agree with the spirit of this answer, and upvoted. However, I think a true Naan is always cooked in a tandoor -- there are other names for flatbreads cooked on a pan. Naan recipes that don't use a tandoor are a compromise.
