besan | gram flour
cardamom powder | Milk masala
Nuts for garnishing
Sieve 1 cup of besan and add it to a wide bowl.
Powder ½ cup of sugar and add it to the bowl.
Add ¼ tsp of baking powder and 1 tsp cardamom powder.
I added milk masala.
Mix well nicely.
Now add the melted ghee. No need to add hot ghee. Just measure ½ cup of melted ghee and add to the flour.
Knead it to a soft dough.
If you feel it is hard, just sprinkle few drops of milk and knead well.
Take a small lemon sized portion of the dough.
Make it into round balls.
Do not flatten it. Just gently press.
You can keep a slice of pista or almond on the top.
I added milk masala on the top.
Preheat an oven for 5 minutes at 160 degrees Celcius.
Bake the nankhatais for 10-12 minutes at 160 degrees Celcius.
The nankhatais will be a bit soft once you take out.
Cool completely and store this in an airtight container.
Melt in mouth besan nankhatais are ready.
1. You can replace besan with plain flour.
2. Do not increase the quantity of ghee in this besan nankhatai.
