Nankhatai is a popular Indian cookie. Traditionally Nankhatias are made with maida or refined flour and also use loads of sugar but here I have used whole wheat flour and jaggery to make it as healthy as possible.You can make it in small batches and store them in air tight containers.



  • 1 cup Whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup Jaggery
  • ½ cup Ghee
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp Cardamom Powder
  • ¼ tsp Nutmeg Powder
  • 8 to 10 Almonds


  1. Let us measure all the ingredients and keep them ready.
  2. In a large mixing bowl add whole wheat flour, salt, baking powder, cardamom powder and nutmeg powder.
  3. Mix all the dry ingredients with a whisk or spatula.
  4. In another bowl add jaggery and ghee and mix them. There should not be any lumps.
  5. Once the ghee and jaggery has mixed well add the dry ingredients gradually.
  6. Its better to use your hands to form the dough than a whisk or spatula.
  7. In case you feel that the dough is very dry add 1 or 2 teaspoons of milk.
  8. My dough was perfect and fine so I did not add any milk.
  9. The dough should be very tight. Keep the dough in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes.
  10. Now preheat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes.
  11. Take small portions of the dough and make small round balls and flatten it between your palms.
  12. Do the same with the rest of the dough.
  13. Grease a baking tray and place all the nankhatais.
  14. Bake then for 12 to 15 minutes till they are golden brown in colour.
  15. Once done cool them for sometime and store them in air tight containers.
  16. Enjoy your festive season with homemade Nankhatais.Healthy Nankhatai Image
