Naan Khatai Biscuits for Diwali
Cardamom Butter Biscuits with Crunch
Adapted from Indian Delights by Zuleikha Mayat
This traditional Indian biscuit is the one that is featured during Diwali and other celebrations. It is similar to a butter biscuit, but the semolina gives it a characteristic nutty crunch. It’s preferable that you use ghee (clarified butter) but you may use butter if you can’t find any. Cardamom fills the kitchen and infuses this biscuit with a gorgeous musky scent.
There are many variations of Naan Khatai – this is one my mother always makes.
I will be making these on Expresso Show in the morning at 6 15 am - what a time eh!
