Naankhatai (cardamom flavoured indian cookies)

(4.32/5 - 19 votes)

6 comments

Have been seeing a lot of recipes for Naankhatai all over the blogosphere but somehow the one that caught my attention was this particular one in Magpies space as she suggested using whole wheat flour. The best thing about these cookies is that they use very little ingredients and even my 4 yr old can make it all by herself.

Naankhatai (Cardamom flavoured Indian Cookies)Recipe type: Other
Number of serving: 4 servings
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Ready in: 30 minutes
Difficulty: Very Easy

Ingredients:

Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
Granulated white sugar - 1/2 cup
Unsalted butter/ghee - 1/2 cup at room temp,till really squishy
Chopped pistachios/cashew nut or any nuts of choice - 1/2 cup
Powdered cardamom - 1/4 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Preparation:

Step 1: Preheat oven to 177 degree C/ 350 degree F
Mix together flour, salt, nuts and powdered cardamom.
Cream the butter using a spatula/hand mixer/ stand mixer (you don't really need any mixers). Add sugar and mix this well with the butter.

Step 2: Tip in dry ingredients and using your finger tips knead this until the dough just comes together.
If your dough is too dry, like mine was, add around 1 tbsp milk and knead, your dough will come together.
You may shape your dough into small balls or use a tbsp measuring spoon to shape your cookies into semi-spheres.

Step 3: Place your cookie doughs on an ungreased and unlined baking sheet and bake for around 10-15 mins or till the edges of the cookies starts to brown.

Step 4: Remove from oven and leave the cookies to cool completely before serving.
These cookies have an amazing and intoxicating cardamom flavour and they make a perfect bite with tea or coffee. And a little warning....... they can get slightly addictive!!!
