Nan Khatai is an Indian cookie. It can me made verity of ways and flavored accordingly with pista or any other dry fruit. You can add ghee or butter. It tastes equally better


1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar(powdered)
1 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp ghee
Pinch of nutmeg powder
2 tsp pista crushed to not so fine pieces
Pinch of green cardamom powder

Method to cook:

Beat ghee and sugar together for 5 minutes with a fork.
Add rest of the ingredients. Mix well.
Take a cookie sheet, grease and place 2 tsp of dough prepared about 1 inch apart from each other. Flatten them slightly from top.
Since, they expand in size, the distance should be enough to prevent the nankhatai to stick to each other.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 170 degree centigrade for 18-20 minutes.
Allow the nankhato to cool down completely before you remove from tray.
Enjoy with morning or evening cup of tea.
