Moong Dal Peanut Nankhatai is a healthy Indian style cookies. Nankhatai is popularly prepared ghee or butter based biscuits in India and neighboring countries. Nankhatai is basically a Persian and Afghan word. I love the fact that this recipe is glutenfree and satisfies the sweet cravings during festivals. I got the idea of using moong dal in cookies from my foodie friend. So why not try it this Deepavali. It is flavoured with roasted peanut flour, fried gram flour and cardamom. The healthy quotient being the cane sugar used instead of refined sugar. These nankhatai are protein, low carbohydrate and oil rich baked goodie. Itâ€™s absolutely guilt free indulgence and irresistible for any festive season.
Dry roasting is important step, to get nice flavored nankhatai.
The dough will be soft due to sugar and ghee, after refrigeration they turn hard.
The quantity of sugar can be varied based on individual taste.
After baking, the nankhatai will be very soft, carefully it should be handled. They turn into melt in mouth kind nankhatai, as they cool down.
