Nankhatai

Amma makes the best Nankhatais . As usual
she makes loads of cookies and give to all our
relatives.With a small oven it would take
hours of time but she never lost patience till the last batch.
Ingredients
Maida - 2 cups
Powdered sugar - 1 cup
Ghee / Dalda melted - 3/4 cup
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Method
  • Sieve maida and baking powder .
  • In a bowl mix maida and sugar.
  • Add ghee little by little to form a stiff dough.
  • Keep it aside for 2 - 3 hrs.
  • Pre heat the oven to 300 C
  • Make a small rounds of dough and flatten it.
  • Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Arrange the nankhatais and bake it for 30 - 40 min.
  • Cool it in the wire rack.

Serve with tea.

Note:
Don't use butter.Butter makes the cookies hard.
