Simple yet tasty Nankattais

This is one of the best Desi version cookie and am sure everyone would have their own recipe. I found the recipe of Suja of Kitchen Corner very easy and perfect. Thanks Suja for your recipe. This recipe calls for just simple basic ingredients and can be prepared in a jiffy.


All purpose flour - 1 cup
Corn Starch - 2 tsp
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Baking soda - a pinch
Salt - a pinch
Powdered sugar - 1/2 cup
Butter - 1 stick
Cardamom powder - as desired.
Pre-heat oven to 200 deg.F. Combine the flour, corn starch,baking powder, baking soda, cardamom powder and salt and keep aside. Mix butter and sugar till the batter is light and fluffy.

To the batter, add the dry mix and combine well till it forms soft lump-like texture. Make into small balls and flatten it a little. Grease the baking tray and arrange them with enough gaps between them as they expand while baking. Bake for 15 minutes and allow it to cool completely.

You can add nuts and dry fruits according to ur taste. Yummy nankattais which would disappear as fast as it is baked is guaranteed.
