These are my fav savoury biscuits. I got addicted after baking these for ICC challenge, and this time when we went to Bangalore I made sure to visit Iyengar bakery and had feasted on these.

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.

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.

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
