Naan Khatai

Posted on

Soft and melt in the mouth…These are the forerunners of all cookies, at least in India. These were the only ones available in the shops and bakeries. The recipe is simple and easy to make.

Delectable Indian style cookies


1½ cups flour

¾ cup powdered sugar

½ cup melted ghee (clarified butter)

¼ tsp vanilla essence or ½ tsp powdered cardamom

Naan Khatai


Mix together all the ingredients, if too dry add some more ghee to make a soft dough.

Divide the dough into 24 equal balls, and place them on a cookie sheet.

Bake at 160 degree centigrade for about 15 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack and store in a tin.

Enjoy !
