White Chocolate and Cinnamon Nan Khatai

I am a die hard fan of nan-khatai. Either with cup of tea or on it's own, they make me happy. Most of the time I like to stick to the original recipe and I don't like to deviate much from it, but I couldn't resist tweaking the original nan-khatai recipe. I decided to add white chocolate and cinnamon. By adding white chocolate I brought a western spark to this eastern delicacy. They were simply divine, irresistible and scrumptious.  you can see my traditional nan khatai recipe here.

You will need :-

  • 500 g Plain flour
  • 50g Chickpea flour
  • 70g Semolina
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 400g ghee or unsalted butter - room temperature
  • 2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 100 g grated white chocolate or white hot chocolate powder

In a big bowl beat the ghee and sugar until fluffy. Now add Flours, semolina, baking powder and cinnamon powder and chocolate. Bind into a dough. pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4-5 and make small balls and flatten slightly. Place on a greased line baking tray..Leave enough space between them. Bake in a pre-heated oven about 14-15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack. Enjoy !

Hi jagruti first of all I love your blog and have tried some recipes plus have unread out excellent except for white chic and cinnamon nankhtai they were just too soft and crumble as you pick them up and break up so I don't know what went wrong followed your recipe thoroughly. If you could please let me know where I went wrong. Thank you.
