About Mango flavoured Nankhatai/cookies Recipe

I loved nankhatai’s in India. We used to get nice velvet textured nankhatais in different shapes, sometimes the taste was also different. I don’t often make cookies. But it’s nice to have them in a few months. Today I experimented again and added a twist to the traditional nankhatai’s by adding Mango pulp. It is a great dish to make for parties and festivals :)
