Nan Katai ( Biscuits)

Nan Katai

Ingredients : 
1/3 cup of Rawa 
1/3 cup of all purpose flour( maida )
1/2 cup of Besan(gram flour)
1/4 tspn baking powder
1/4 tspn cardamom powder
2/3 cup of powdered sugar
1 stick (1/4 lb) butter
Cashewnuts / pistachio / almonds for garnishing

Mix all flours, baking powder,cardamom powder together.
In a separate pan mix butter(room temperature) and sugar.n mix it thoroughly untill soft and fluffy.It takes 5 mins to get this consistency.Then add above mix flour and knead a soft dough.Make 15 equal parts and roll it and press with palm lightly.garnish with nuts and place them on greased cookie sheet.
Preheat oven to 375 degree and bake the nankatai for 13 mins.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 min before removing them from sheet.
Store in airtight container.

IMP : Nankatai should not be disturbed when it is just done else it will fall apart .It should be allowed to cool down and become stiff.Also check in between when its baking.Just when it gets golden color, it is done.Believe me.I did it the first time and overbaked it.It will become good after it cools down.

Oh my God....believe me..its melting in my mouth .....yummy, easy and fast !! Njoy...
