Nankhatie (Indian Version Of Cookies)

Cuisine: Indian
Courses: Dessert
Serves: 1 people

Recipe Ingredients

250   Semolina
250   Plain flour
250   Ghee or unsalted butter
250   Icing sugar
  Few drops vanilla essence
  Sliced almonds & pistachios - to garnish

Recipe Instructions

Mix the flour and the semolina together, mix the sugar and the ghee together separately and really beat well. Slowly slowly add the mixed semolina and the flour into the mixture beating all the time to let the air in. You can easily do this in the food processor by combining the sugar and ghee and then feeding the flour down through the tube...takes the hard work out! Then take the dough out and place in a bowl leave aside for at least 4-5 hours.

Then dip your fingers in little milk and work the dough again, now add the vanilla drops working the dough well. Make small round cookies and place on baking tray. Garnish the tops with almonds and pistachios or whatever takes your fancy. Bake until golden brown and leave to cool on rack.

Grannys tip: you can substitute wheat flour for the semolina if you prefer but you will need to put in 500 grams wheat flour the rest of the ingredients remain the same.
