I love nankhatais ! Eggless and so easy to make , with just four ingredients , these Indian cookies are simply yum. As a child , when friends would come over during diwali with their plates of home made goodies ( the days when readymade sweets and fancy packaging was not cool) , my sister and I would look for chaklis and nankhatais and relish those more than anything else .
I have been baking these for over a year now and decided to bake some yesterday for the family . The microwave decided to trouble me and refused to go into convection mode and a sudden grunting sound felt like a warning that it wasn’t going to budge. So I had to go to mum’s and tried baking them there for the first time .
Unfamiliar with the settings and with no manual at hand , I baked just four at first , and when those turned out well , three dozen nankhatais were ready in no time. Happiness is baking cookies for those you love , even though you can’t have any !
