Nan Khatai

on October 19, 2014

Hey Guys !! Deepavali is right around the corner, And this is the time we usually think, what kinda goodies should we stock in for the festive season, Try these “Nan Khatai” and am sure you’re gonna enjoy it with your family. These cute little cookies just melt in the mouth and it makes an ideal gift too, if you wanna pack some for your friends and relatives. So here are the ingredients, and all you need is hardly 25 min ๐Ÿ˜‰ So what are you waiting for, Go on and surprise your family and friends with these lovely beauties ๐Ÿ˜€


  • Wheat flour/ Atta 3/4 cup
  • Maida/ All purpose flour 1/4 cup
  • Sugar 1/2 cup
  • Ghee , melted 1/2 cup (may not need all)
  • Elachi/ Cardamom 1
  • Baking powder 1 pinch
  • Pistachios, for decoration 10


  • In a mixer, place sugar along with elachi and powder it. Transfer to a mixing bow
  • In the same mixer, coarsely powder pistachios, keep aside. Preheat the oven at 190 deg C or 375 F.
  • Add atta, maida to the powdered sugar along with baking powder. Mix well.
  • Add ghee little by little rubbing as you add. You may not need all, may be 1 tblsp you can reserve. You should add ghee to form a dough. No water.
  • In a baking tray, line with cookie sheet or grease with ghee, dust with a tsp of flour. Make equal sized balls (I got 25) out of the dough. Flatten slightly, not too much.
  • Cut with a knife to make a criss-cross pattern in the top middle of the cookie. Add a pinch of powdered pistachios over each cut.
  • Bake it for 12 to 15 minutes at 190 deg. C/ 375 F. The cookie should not change in colour to dark brown. When it just starts golden in colour in the sides, that is enough. Cool in wire rack before storing in an airtight container.


ย Note : Make small peda’s as it will look pretty and nice too ๐Ÿ™‚ I got 25 cookies, but you may increase the size of peda’s if you wish too ๐Ÿ™‚

Second batch gets baked quickly (Incase your planning for one) so keep an eye on the oven after 10 Min
