Nankhatai is one cookie I am fond of, not only is it eggless, but very simple to make. I have my own version though. Instead of pure desi ghee, I used unsalted melted butter.
I made these without the cardamom this time, my kids like them plain, and rolled in some turbinado sugar.
Try dunking these in Chai the next time around....it's a perfect tea-time snack.
Here is what you will need:
- 1 cup- All purpose flour
- 1 tsp- Baking powder
- 1/2 cup - Melted unsalted butter (use desi ghee, if you like)
- 1/2 cup - Powdered Sugar
- 1 tsp - Pure Vanilla Extract
- 3 tbsp- Turbinado Sugar to roll the cookies in(optional)
For a Desi Variation: Use Ghee in place of butter, Wheat flour in place of All-purpose flour, add a teaspoon of Cardamom powder, a teaspoon of Saffron, and about 2-3 tbsps of Pistachio powder in the flour mix.
Bake at 375F for around 20-25 minutes until golden. Enjoy them while hot as is, or dunked in some hot tea or coffee! The taste is wonderful....light, airy and buttery-perfect egg less indulgence.
