Nan Kathais


These are probably the easiest to bake and the most versatile cookies. This particular recipe is from my friend which she had shared with another friend’s daughter who made them for us.
Niki follows this recipe whenever she feels like baking all by herself. I have a recipe in my microwave cookbook which replaces the gram flour in this with semolina.

Ingredients:
1 ¼ cups All purpose flour
¼ cup Gram flour
½ cup Ghee (clarified butter)
½ cup Powdered sugar

Method:
Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees Centigrade
Mix all the ingredients with a spatula until well blended.
Pinch out small portions and roll them in balls and then flatten a bit.
Place well apart on a baking tray. Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven. While still warm, sprinkle some powdered sugar over the naan khatais.
Allow them to cool and transfer to airtight containers.
I have added some readymade jam and nuts.

  16. The cookies look awesome. I usually see recipes that make them with vegetable shortening. I like that you have used ghee.
