This is a baked snack item which is sweet in taste
Step 1: Nan Khatai Recipe
1 Cup Maida
1/2 Cup Besan
2 table spoon Sooji
1/2 Cup Sugar ( I used the one which we get from Costco)
1/2 cup Ghee
Pinch of Salt
Pinch of Cardamom powder
Almond for Garnish
Step 2: Making the Dough
Take a bowl and put Maida, Besan, Sooji ( as per above-mentioned measures) and mix it.
Add Sugar, cardamom powder, and a pinch of salt.
Now start adding Ghee to the mix. I'd suggest to add Ghee slowly (and not in single go)and keep mixing the ingredients.
As we have Besan in the ingredient, knead the mixture well to crush all the small particles which form while we add Ghee.
Once the initial mixing with Ghee is done, pour the rest of the Ghee and mix.The texture of the dough would come like the attached picture.
This dough will make approximately 15-18 Nan Khatai based on the size you choose for it.
Step 3: Rolling Into Small Round Pieces
Take small portions of the dough and make them into round shapes. Then make a small dent with your finger on top of it.I had cut small pieces of almonds to garnish on top of each of the Nan Khatai.
Step 4: Baking
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Take the Baking tray and cover with aluminum foil.
Then place the nan khatai's equidistant so that they get proper heat in the oven put the baking tray in the preheated oven for 15 mins.Your delicious Nan Khatai is ready !!The whole Kitchen would be full of the awesome aroma of it.
I couldn't resist and had a hot one to taste !! It just melted in the mouth
