Why it’s called Nankhatai?

As it belongs to South Asia, popular in India and Pakistan. The word ‘Nankhatai’ is derived from Persian word Naan meaning bread and “Khatai” from a Dari Persian word meaning Biscuit. In Afghanistan and Northeast Iran, these biscuits are called Kulcha-e-Khataye. (Source: Wikipedia)

What is Nankhatai made of?

Nankhatai basically prepared just by adding 3 ingredients. All-purpose flour, powdered sugar and ghee (clarified butter). Ingredient number 4 is optional but people use semolina, besan or egg.

Here in this recipe, I used semolina as it’s a healthy option and make it more crispy and crunchy in taste.

10 Tips to Make Perfect Nankhatai Without Oven

  1. Use proper ratio of ingredients to make nankhatai otherwise, it will break during the making.
  2. Always use powdered sugar. Avoid granulated as it will make it grainy in looks.
  3. The addition of cardamom powder and little cinnamon powder makes it fragrant and tasty.
  4. Add semolina with care otherwise, it will break during making or might be brittle when you take out after baking.
  5. As I am making it on the stovetop so carefully manage the temperature.
  6. Always line your baking pan with butter paper so avoid sticking.
  7. Never forget to preheat the pan. Place baking pan in the hot pan.
  8. Always place stand at the center of the pan to avoid direct contact with heat otherwise it will burn.
  9. Initially bake at high temperature for 5 minutes then turn the heat to low/medium. It will almost take 30 to 35 minutes to prepare.
  10. Wait to cool down, when it’s done.
  11. If you are using oven, then bake it at 180c for 25 to 30 minutes.
