Nan Khatai

Written by

Nan Khatais are sweet Indian shortbread cookies which can be enjoyed with a hot cup of tea. They can be made easily with very few ingredients. I have made this using white flour but it can also be prepared using whole wheat flour to make it even more healthier. 

Prep Time: 15-20 Mints
Cooking Time- 20 Mints
Temperature- 180 Deg
Serves- 3-4


Maida- 1-1/2 cup
Powdered Sugar- 1/2 cup
Salt- a pinch
Baking powder- 1/2 tsp
Milk- 1 cup
Butter- 6tbsp 
Almond- sliced 4-5
Cardamom Powder- 1/2 tsp

Step 1: Mix all the ingredients and make a dough. The dough should be greasy.
Step 2: Pre-heat the microwave at 180 deg and then make small round shaped balls from the dough. Don’t make thick balls as it will rise. Make thin small balls. 
Step 3: Garnish it with sliced almonds and cardamom powder.
Step 4: Bake it for 20-25 minutes till it becomes golden brown.
The yumm nankhatais are ready to be enjoyed with a hot cup of tea.
