NANKATAI RECIPE- COEES OF ALL INDIAN WHEAT
Nan Khatai is a classic Indian shortbread cookies made with a mixture of flour, semolina, ghee and topped with delicate Cardamom flavors. My rice recipe is made with whole wheat flour.
Those delicious Indian cookies are soft, crunchy, light, almost melting in your mouth and are very sweet. Here's how to make Nankhatai with my simple and blindproof recipe.
Nankhatai for its mouth-watering taste and Indian flavor is as good as a cup of masala chai or coffee. In our home, we just love the combination so most of the time we have a small or large batch that we can enjoy.
Why I always make them at home is simply better than grocery shopping or baking.

I can use healthy flour to make Nankhatai.
It's easy to keep. You can easily store 3-4 weeks in an air container.

You need 5 ingredients to make Nankhatai: Flour, semolina, sugar, Ghee and flavors. I will talk about the flavor variations in the recipe notes in the last part of the post.
In my Nankhatai recipe, I use a combination of flour and that is what gives the Indian cookie a unique flavor and is a healthy little alternative.
I make many variations of Nankhatais, each with a different flavor due to the flour used and the added flavor. For this recipe, I used a combination of all-purpose flour, wheat flour, chickpea / Besan flour, and semolina or sooji.
Nankhatai recipes contain both wet and dry ingredients.
