We had some party at my kids playgroup..where every one suppose to bring some homemade food and every one will share at the end of the session....it was fun,,even last year we had such thing.....so this year i decide to Prepare Naan khatari and Banana buns and also I prepared Shankarpoli(which i will be posting it later)It was a nice co-incidence that last year also i had prepared Nana khatari to welcome the a new year(2011),and this year also at the same time i prepared it once again....so This time I used a different method..and last year i had baked it in my bread machine..but this year i have baked in the oven.....This is also one of the yummy method....Perfect for welcoming a new year.......
Whole wheat flour 1/2(2-3tsp less than 1/2 cup)
all purpose flour 1/2 cup
gram flour(chickpeas flour) 1TBSP
Icing sugar or powdered sugar little less than 1cup(or as per sweet)
cardamom powder 1/2tsp
Ground Cinnamon 1/2tsp
Pure ghee or clarified butter 3/4 cup (melted)
warm milk 3-4TBSP(use only as required)
How to prepare;
Add powdered sugar to the melted ghee and mix well.
Now add all the other dry ingredients together mix well and add to the above sugar ghee mixture and knead gently to make dough...once everything is mixed it will be dry so add 2-3tbsp of milk to form dough(this will help the flour to stick together) cover the dough and keep aside for 2-3 hours..or as like me it is very cold here,,if u keep the dough it be be hard again so i kept only for half an hour.....
Pre-heat the oven by gas mark6(or preheat as per cookies)
Take out the dough and make equal size small small balls(make around 24-25)(almost similar to gulab jamoon size) and keep it in the oven baking try(i used non stick)no need to grease..
Keep it in the middle rack and bake for 15-20mins and just check in between to avoid the burn of the bottom of the cookies.....
Cook until it turns in to golden brown.......
Tip:Take out from the oven even thought it seems bit soft..because it will become hard once it is cool...
Take out from the oven and keep aside to get cool.....(around for an hour)...then have the Naankhatari with a cup of hot coffee or tea.
