NANKHATAIby Avneet Anand (@avneetanand)
Nan khatai is a traditional Indian sweet biscuit that has a rich heritage and is loved for its delicate texture and enticing flavors. These bite-sized treats are known for their crumbly, buttery texture that practically melts in your mouth.
The appearance of nan khatai is inviting, with each biscuit typically shaped into a small round ball. They have a light golden hue on the outside, showcasing a slight crispness that gives way to a tender interior.
The use of cardamom powder in the recipe infuses the biscuits with a warm and slightly sweet scent that is characteristic of Indian sweets.
Whether you're savoring nan khatai during festive celebrations, serving it to guests, or simply treating yourself to a sweet delight, this beloved Indian biscuit offers a delightful combination of flavors and textures that make it truly special.
