Atta nankhattai

Nan khatai is a Indian style short bread cookies. I have already posted the recipe of Nan khatai , also posted a version of saffron laced nankhatais too. Though i already posted 2 sweet recipes for holi, since today is holi festival i thought i will post some thing colourful. Suddenly thought of this atta nan khatai which i have bookmarked from Divya’s space long back. I made this and added few drops of food colour to the dough to make it colourful.Wish you all a very Happy Holi.
The original recipe used only whole wheat flour for making nakhattai.

Notes:
  • If it is slightly soft when soft after taking out from the oven, do not worry, it will become crispy when it is completely cool.
  • But if you still feel it is soft after cooling down baking it for 5 more minutes.
