NANKATHAI (EGGLESS VERSION)

Nankathai (Eggless version)




I always loved this when i was a kid itself. I used to get in bakery shops and i used to just eat non -stop...sigh :( gone are those the days where I can eat like that..
Yes, forget about the waistline part and make a enjoy a few of these ;) .. quick and easy way to prepare when you really need to get something to eat sweet in a jiffy :)

Ingredients:
All purpose Flour - 1.5 cup
Wheat Flour - 1/2 cup
Ghee - approx 1 cup
Sugar powdered - 1/2 cup
Cashew, Almonds, Pista - 1/3 cup roughly chopped (optional)
Baking Soda - 1/4 tsp

Preparation:
Put in all the flours, soda, sugar and the nuts mix. roughly mix with hand. Then slowly add in little by little ghee and keep mixing till you get a dough (a smaooth dough like a chappati dough). If the mix looks like crumbling add in a bit more spoonful of ghee.



In a pre-heated pan at 180C, place parchment paper on the baking tray. Make small balls of the dough and flatten them lightly and then place them on the tray. Bake for 8 - 9 mins approx and let it cool down completely to be stored in air-tight container.


I m sending this over for the event My Diwali My Way .



Cheers,
Neetz ;)

Note:
You can substitute the wheat flour to all purpose flour.
Wait the biscuits to cool down a bit to have a bite otherwise it might crumble.
