Straight out from oven. Freshly baked nankhatai. Delicious and melt in mouth.
After taste it you never satisfy with store bought. These home made are much better than store bought. These nankhatai or shortbread cookies are altime favourite amongst my family and friends. I have adopted the recipe from Zee Bangla rannaghar. Loved it too much so sharing it here 😊

Gram flour/chickpea flour or besan – 1/2 cup
Powdered sugar – 1 cup
