Naan Khatai from 2 batches
Naan Khatais are cookies that include cardomom, chick pea flour and semolina amongst other ingredients. It is a very delicious cookie, and ranks as one of my favorites. There are several recipes for naan khatai in recipe books and on the website. After trial and error, I came up with a whole lot of naan khatais and also a recipe that is simple and really works well.
I found that it is very important to time the baking. I had some that were too hard and others that were slightly undercooked. The best amount of time for these cookies/biscuits is 16minutes. It should retain a creamy-light fawn color and be firm to the touch. Here is my version of naan khatai.
