Today I was feeling the need for a bake, so I made these my Pistachio Nankhatai. I have many different versions and flavour combinations some are wheat free, vegan, with nuts without but the great thing about these is that they are super easy to make and taste delightful. This version can be made using the following recipe.
1 cup plain flour
1/4 cup chickpea flour
1/4 cup fine semolina
1tsp baking powder
1/2 cup of Icing sugar
1/2 cup of ghee melted
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
1/5 nutmeg freshly grated
Small pinch of Salt
2tbsp of ground pistachios
Preheat the oven to 180c
in a bowl add all the dry ingredients except the pistachios and combine
Add the ghee and milk to the dry mix and combine with your hands to from a smooth dough if the mixture is a little wet add a further tbsp of chickpea flour
Leave the dough to rest for 10 minutes.
Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper
Take pinch size bits of dough and roll into a balls, place on the lines baking sheet and slightly flatten the dough. (Roughly 35g)
With a knife cut a cross shape Ito the dough and sprinkle with the ground pistachio.
Bake in the oven for 18-22 minutes
Remove from oven and leave to cool before removing from the baking sheet.
Enjoy with a delicious cup of masala chai.
