Naan Khattari/Naan khattar/Narayani khattar

Today is the last day of this year..and May be this is my last post for the year......So This year was very good....I hope the same for the coming year......

I wish you all of you very 'HAPPY NEW YEAR'......Have a wonderful and great year...Welcome the new with this Sweet....

Naan Khattar is one of my all time fav dessert.When I was in Bangalore ,I always use to get from the bakery and eat...So today thought of doing it myself at home.. But the texture has not turned so very well as I eat in bakery....anyways it tasted I would like to share this recipe with you all...If anyone know how to make this recipe better,,Please give me your good thought..

All purpose flour(maida) 1 1/2 cup
Icing sugar 3/4 cup
Baking powder 1 tsp
powdered Cardamom 3/4tsp
A pinch of salt
Ghee or Unsalted Butter melted around 200gm

Add all the dry ingredients in a large bowl,Mix well.Now gradually add the melted Ghee or butter and knead the flour.Use the ghee as much as required to make dough(the dough will not be very soft. and keep aside covered for 5-6 hours.

Once the dough is done take out ,It will be very hard,so take small small parts of dough and slowly make balls(just like jamoon balls)Make around 30-32 balls.

bake in oven for 10-15 mins..or till the colour changes from clear white to very light brown.Immidatly take out from the oven and keep aside to get it cool.It will be soft when it is hot,,later once it is cool it will be as normal Naan Khattri.

I baked in my bread machine in 3-4 I am doing this first time...I has not come out very nice(look wise),,,But the it tasted very good.
So the sweet tasty Naan khattari is ready to eat...This is Indian dessert..but you can eat this sweet anytime...Once it is cool store in a airtight jar...can use more that 15day....(If left out)

Note: while baking give a good space between each balls,because it will raise,and will become double in size.Other wise it will stick to each other which happened to me on my first batch.
Also keep an eye on baking process,because if it is over cooked the bottom will be burned very fast.

I am sending this recipe to TorView's
