N - Easiest Nan Khatai Recipe

Hello Friends, 

Nan Khatai is one recipe I had first learned way back in my school days.
I vividly remember my home science teacher Mrs. Singh explaining and mixing the cookie dough while demonstrating the recipe.

These cookies are made in different ways. Some make it with eggs, while others do an eggless version of the same. cookies are made in so many different ways. It can be made with either maida or gram flour.
They are very easy and can be made from start to finish under 30 minutes. I hope you like my recipe and will try this out. Do let me know how it turns out.

Nan Khatai


2 cups Refined flour (maida)
1 cup Castor Sugar
1 cup of oil
1 tsp Nutmeg powder
A few nuts


1. Sift the flour, sugar, and nutmeg together through a sieve.  Do this twice.

2. Transfer the mixture in a bowl and add oil now and mix it into a dough.

3. Divide it into equal balls. Flatten it to make a round cookie shape.

4.Make an X shape on each nan Khatai and place a nut on the top. You can use almonds or Cashews on the top.

5. Preheat the oven at 200 ° Celsius.

6. Grease the baking tray with oil and place the ban khatais on the tray keeping an one-inch gap. As the cookies will swell in shape after baking.

7. Now bake the nan khatais for 15 t0 18 minutes at 180° Celcius.

8. After baking, let the nan  khatai cool down before taking them off the tray

9. Add the milk only if the mixture seems dry.
