How to make Whole Wheat Nan Khatai

  1. In a bowl , add in the wheat flour , gram flour , powdered sugar , nutmeg and cardamom powders and baking powder together .
  2. Powdered sugar is best for biscuits , as it gets mixed in easily .
  3. Here's the trick :-
  4. For ghee users : Melt the ghee well on a low flame . Patiently deal with it or else it'll get burned . Once done , let it sit in the freezer for 15 mins or till it's set well . Using this set ghee , mould your dough . Make sure to cut it into smaller pieces . This step is crucial for crispy and crunchy cookies .
  5. For butter users : Cut the butter into small bite sized pieces and use it to mould your flour . Again , the butter should be cold enough too .
  6. Another step not to miss is that always , always work with the dough gently . Don't use force and pressure ; meaning don't do it like how you would deal with your roti dough . Those two can destroy your naan khatais .
  7. Preheat your oven to 180° at this point
  8. When done , gently , ever so carefully , fold in the milk as a final step .
  9. With your hands , mould a portion into a thick , kind of small circle because while baking , it spreads to become a larger one . That's why they should be thick and small .
  10. Gently push an almond into the centre , making a dent .
  11. Line these in a baking tray and bake for about 20 - 25 mins .
  12. Let it sit at room temperature for about 10 mins before serving .
