Eggless Nan Khatai with and without Oven

How to Make Eggless Nankhatai with and without Oven
Hello Foodies,
            Nankhatai has been my favorite biscuits since childhood and continued to be. These are flavored with ghee, cardamom, and pistachios and will melt in your mouth. These crispy biscuits taste heavenly when are dipped in milk or chai. 

            Mainly Nankhatai prepared in the oven, and that is appealing, but Nankhatai can also be prepared without an oven, on gas in a kadhai or pan with heavy base or pressure cooker, so today I am sharing with you how to prepare this Eggless Nankhatai with and without an oven. Method to prepare this Nankhatai is super easy, and the outcome is delicious. 

You can make it as soft Nankhatai, or you can make it a little hard like biscuits. It is all about cooking time, cook for more time if you want crunchy Nankhatai. If this is your first time baking experience without an oven, be patient and keep watching the consistency frequently. Let's start with the recipe!

Preparation Time: 15 Minutes; Baking Time: 15 Minutes.
Each Nankhatai Contains 101 Cal.

  • Maida / All purpose flour 1 cup
  • Sugar ½ cup, powdered sugar
  • Besan / Gram flour ½ cup
  • Ghee / melted butter ½ cup
  • Semolina 2 tbsp
  • Milk Powder 2 tbsp
  • Cardamom powder 1 tsp
  • Pistachios 5 to 6

  • In a bowl add all-purpose flour, gram flour, semolina, milk powder, and cardamom powder and mix all very well, keep aside.
  • Now in another bowl add butter and sugar and beat them by using a wire whisk or hand mixer until it gets soft and smooth.
  • Add sieved and mixed dry ingredients to the butter-sugar mixture, mix all and knead to make a soft dough.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • Divide dough into equal portions and shape each portion into round peda shape and place in a baking tray, top each rolled Peda with pistachios.

To Bake Nankhatai in Pan / Kadhai :
  • In a pan add 1 ½ cups of salt (to cover the base of pan or kadhai), place wire rack or plate, cover and preheat the pan for 5 to 7 minutes and after 7 minutes place baking pan over the wire and bake on medium to low flame for 15 minutes.

To Bake Nankhatai in Oven  :
  • Preheat oven at 350 F.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes at 350 F.
  • Tadaa, delicious, crunchy nankhatais are ready to serve, enjoy it with milk of glass.

My Take :
  • You can prepare the dough in advance and freeze it and whenever the need takes out from the freeze 4 to 5 hrs before baking.
  • You can add butter instead of ghee. Some bakery uses dalda in making nankhatai.
  • It is always good to keep an eye after 10 minutes. If your medium flame itself is too high in your stove, you need to look before itself.
  • You can skip adding milk powder if you don't have it or replace it with custard powder to make it more flavorsome.

Dietary Comments :
  • Based on a 2000 calorie diet.
  • Per serving contains 101.3 calories, along with carbohydrates - 11.61 g, fats - 5.39 g, proteins - 1.92 g.  
Good Time To Eat :
         It's good to eat Nan Khatai as a dessert or evening snack with a glass of milk.
