Nan khatai

This recipe is quit popular...It is very easy to remember the easy as making gulab jamuns..
Maida,Butter and Sugar (MBS)
at the ratio of 2:1:1

I mean
Maida or APF-1 cup
Unsalted Butter-half cup(So,one stick)
Sugar-half cup
Baking powder-1 tsp(optional)
Milk-1 tsp(optional)

1.Melt butter into liquid form (jus 60 secs in microwave)
2.Add sugar to melted butter,mix well until sugar is well dissolved 
3.Add the flour and make a tight dough
(dont knead the dough too hard,jus knead with tip of ur fingers)
4.Make like (table tennis)balls and press them in center
5.Grease a tray,dust some flour,keep the dumplings an inch distance to each other
6.Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes in a preheated oven(big oven) and 240 for 10-15
 minutes in small preheated oven

For the first time cookie makers
  • Check the center of cookie is shdn't be like dough u made,some granules has formed,but still soft
  • The temperature varies to each oven,so keep an eye while baking
  • Wait till the cookies cools down,it turns crispy..u wont get crispy cookies straight from the oven
  • Can decorate with choco chips,candies and nuts
  • Can also add flavour with any essence or cardamom powder 
  • I usually dont use baking powder for nan khatais,but u can try it
  • Make soft dough,so ur cookies wont have much cracks

U can also roll the dough and make shapes out of it ...dust some flour while rolling it.

Happy snacking...
