I baked these Nankhatais a while back.Some times,my bakes are meticulously planned[keeping in mind the intake of butter,sugar etc]but sometimes they happen in a flash.Just like this one.It was on a lazy afternoon I saw Raaga's Fb status message with a link to her recipe for Nankhatai and I was intrigued.I mean,I have seen that post before,she had mentioned how her mom's Nankhatais were quite popular with her friends.But the time to bake it had finally come.More so because I had a bottle full of ghee with me[which is a rare occurance].I didn't waste any more time and immediately hopped into the kitchen to make it.
Half way into the baking,I knew[I just knew it] that this was IT.My search for THE perfect Nankhatai could be laid to rest coz it smelled wonderful.Perfect looks too,with the slight crack on top,I just couldn't wait to take my first bite.And when I did,I just couldn't stop--it is that good.Try it for yourself and see!!
Recipe source - Raaga of The Singing Chef
Maida/Flour - ¾ cup
Cooking soda - 1/8 tsp
Powdered Sugar - ¼ cup
Ghee - 1/3 cup[generous]
Cardamom and Powdered Nutmeg - ¼ tsp each
Preheat oven to 180C.
How did we like it - As I said,I'd never look for another Nankhatai recipe again coz this one works like a charm.Raaga says this is a halved recipe,so this one can be easily doubled for a bigger batch--and you'd need a bigger batch to satisfy your cravings.We immediately shared this with some friends for the fear that we'd finish it all by ourselves!
