Nankhatai in Oven

Nankhatai In Oven


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • Almonds or pistachios for garnishing


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. In a mixing bowl, add the ghee and powdered sugar. Whisk until creamy and smooth.
  3. In another bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and cardamom powder.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well to form a smooth dough. Do not knead the dough too much.
  5. Make small balls from the dough, flatten them slightly, and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Make sure to leave enough space between each cookie as they will expand while baking.
  6. Press a piece of almond or pistachio on top of each cookie.
  7. Bake the nankhatai in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the edges turn slightly brown.
  8. Take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool down completely.
  9. Serve the nankhatai with tea or coffee.

Enjoy your homemade nankhatai!
