Nankhatai is a famous Indian short bread cookies ,they just melt in mouth......when I tried for first time it was completely failed and I tried after few months ago that was successful.
I fell in love with these cookies :)
These cookies are made with flour,besan,ghee and some nuts.......some people also add soji......but I like this way.
Recipe source : yummy tummy (the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of milk but actually it took only 1 to 2 table spoons of milk)I have also made some changes like instead of pistachios I used almonds and cashews.
