Nan Khatai

Nan khatai is an egg-less light and crispy fabulous biscuit that's perfect to serve with tea or coffee..You can store it in airtight jar for more than one week.


All purpose flour(maida) ~ 1/3 cup
Semolina (fine sooji) ~ 1/3 cup
Gram flour(besan) ~ 1/2 cup
A Pinch of baking soda
Green cardamom seeds ~ 1/4 coarsely powder
Unsalted butter ~ 1/2 cup (I used Refine oil)
Sugar ~ 2/3 cup
Few cashew nuts for garnishing

Method :

Pre heat the oven to 375 degree (190 degree for OTG).

In a bowl, mix the all-purpose flour, gram flour, sooji, baking soda and cardamom powder and set aside.

Add oil and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat for two to three minutes until light and fluffy.

Add the flour mix to butter and sugar mixture and knead them together to make smooth dough.

Divide the dough into about 20 equal parts and make them into balls.Press each ball between your palms lightly.

Put cashew nuts on the top of dough  and press them into the dough gently.

Put Nan khatai on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake at 190 degrees in OTG for about  30 to 40 minutes or until Nan khatai are lightly gold brown.

After they are lightly golden brown remove the cookie sheet from the oven.  Let the Nan Khatais cool down for two to three minutes before taking them off the cookie sheet.
