Note:

  1. Increase the quantity of yogurt by 1 tblsp if the can’t get a dough consistency.
  2. I didn’t add cumin seeds.
  3. You can add ajwain seeds, finely chopped mint or any other herbs of your choice.
  4. You can use 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup of all purpose flour.

  36. Hello Jeyashri - try blending all the ingredients in a mixer in a cold state. Use cold butter or fat and blend. Wrap in a cling foil and place in the fridge for 30 mins.

    Then remove the dough, roll it out, make your biscuits round and bake. You'll see a better finish.

  37. Dear Jeyashri:

    I made the Nan Khatai according to your recipe, it was absolute yum. I felt so proud after baking it, thank you so much.

    Next I tried the Tutti Fruity cookies and the Khara Biscuits. They tasted good, but they were not like cookies. They were not soft and crunchy, instead little hard and floury. I followed your recipe quite exactly. Can you suggest what I may not have followed correctly.

    I appreciate and admire you a lot.

    Thank you very much.
    Shobha.

    1. Sorry for the delayed reply Shobha. The reason may be because of you must have baked it for a little lesser time. Temperature and timings vary from oven to oven.
      Try decreasing the temperature and increase the cooking time
