Naan Khatai Recipe


Nan Khatai is Pakistan’s traditional cookies and I am a big fan of naan khatai since I was a small kid. Its very easy to make and when you eat them it just melts in your mouth. I cant describe the taste but you all must give it a try.

      You dont need to add egg in naan khatai……………you just have to apply it on the top when its ready to bake. If you see naan khatai, it has brownish glaze over it, its because of the egg.

    hi neel,
    i think if the measurements were in cups it would be better.

      150 gm is approximatley equal to 1 cup. so now you can convert grams into cups easily.
