Chocolate Nan khatai/Diwali Special

Chocolate Nan khatai/Diwali Special

As I belong to Uttar Pradesh, Nan khatai are very common at my house. There is an annual fair held at Meerut  called Nauchandi Mela.The biscuit makers  make this local biscuit or cookie, called “Nankhatai”. It is made and sold on the spot.

I made  Nankhatai  so many times but this time I did a twist. I added chocolate powder to it .It came out very delicious.


  1.  Maida 1 cup
  2. Gram Flour 1/2 cup
  3. Choco Powder 2 tbsp
  4. Pure Ghee 1/2 cup( I used home-made desi ghee)
  5. Powdered Sugar 1/2 cup(I powdered normal sugar in mixie)
  6. Cardamom Powder  1/2 tsp
  7. Baking Powder 1/2 tsp
  8. Baking Soda 1/4 tsp
  9. Milk  2 tbsp or as needed
  10. Almonds  chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degree C. Line a baking tray with foil and set aside.
  2. Take flour, gram flour, Choco powder, baking soda, baking powder in a bowl and mix well.
  3. Take Ghee, powdered sugar, cardamom powder in a bowl and mix well.
  4. Now add in the flour mix and fold well. Add milk if required and knead to a soft dough.I used 2 tbsp of milk.
  5. Take small part of the dough and roll it into a ball. Roll it in chopped almonds and arrange it in tray.
  6. Bake for 20 – 25 mins or till golden.
