Ingredients to make Nankhatai

  • 1 Cup Ghee/clarified butter
  • 1 Cup Castor sugar
  • ½ Cup all purpose flour
  • ½ Cup Whole wheat flour
  • ¼ Coarse semolina
  • ¼ chickpea Flour
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

How to make Nankhatai

  1. In a bowl beat ghee and castor sugar until light and fluffy and extremely pale in color.
  2. In a bowl, put all the remaining ingredients (except pistachios) together and mix them well.
  3. Now mix the ghee and sugar mixture with the dry ingredients (step 2) together and form a dough.
  4. Refrigerate the dough for at least 20 minutes.
  5. Roll the dough into ball-like shapes and place them on lightly greased cookie sheet.
  6. Place the pistachios on top and press in lightly.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for around 15-17 minutes

My Tip:

If you do not want to use Ghee, you can always use Butter. But whatever you use, that should be at the room temperature.
