The Homemade Valentine's Day treats R  d sweetest way to say "I love you" 2 the special one in your life..My husband loves cookies & cakes very much..esp sweet this time I decided to make marble cake & Nan khatai for him..& dinner his fav. masala puri & Chole...:) Smiley

I baked these for my valentine for the 1st time Smiley...It is soo simple recipe, tasty & the aroma of butter is soo good while baking & more over it takes less time to prepare...I baked them for the 1st time & it was superb...


All purpose flour- ½ cup
Semolina/ sooji- ¼ cup
Gram flr/ beasan- ¼ cup
Baking soda- ½ tsp
Cardamom powder- 1 tsp 
Unsalted butter/ ghee- ½ cup
Sugar- ½ cup
some broken pistachios for garnishing


Preheat oven at 375 degree F. Grease the baking tray. I have used cooking spray to bake my nan khatai.
Mix flour , Besan , Sooji , cardamom powder& baking powder in a bowl. Set it aside.
Now Mix the butter and sugar together. Butter should be soft. Whip butter/ ghee and sugar till light and creamy in the help of spoon of electric hand beater. 

Now fold in flour and knead well with your hands. The dough should be soft. if u will find the dough is hard then add little bit curd or milk.

Divide dough into small rounds & press them with the help of your palms. Arrange them on the greased baking tray and Put chopped pistachios in centre.

Put them about a inch apart. Bake for 10- 15 minutes till done. let it cool for 5-10 mins. remove & place them on a wire rack.

 Dont over bake. Great to serve with hot hot tea.
