Yum




Crispy Nankhatai...

I was just a first timer for these little beauties but really they turned out very crispy n tasty...

Hope all first timers also have a great time baking them...


Ingredients:

all purpose flour 2 cups
baking soda 3/4 tsp
sugar 1 cup ( measure after powdering)
ghee 1 cup
cardamom 4 - 5
saffron few (optional)

Method:

Powder the sugar with the cardamom n saffron(if using).

Then measure the ammount required.




Measure the flour and baking soda togather then add the powdered sugar mixture and mix well.




Now add the melted ghee to the mixture and mix well with your fingertips.


Knead the mixture into a soft dough (dont over do the dough)


Once the dough is soft and comes togather like a ball leave it aside for minimum 1 hour (if left overnight then its better)

After an hour pinch the dough into equal size balls and place in an ungreased baking tray.

Place the tray in the preheated 160 - 170 C oven and bake for 20 mins or till they are cooked but not browned.


Your beauties are ready to serve...
