Our friend Puja from The Cup of Calm blog is sharing her nankhatais recipe, the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. 

Preparation time:


  • 3 cups of graham flour/besan 
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour 
  • 2 cups of sugar 
  • 2 cups of (can be slightly more or less) of ghee/butter/oil
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/4 tsp of baking soda 
  • 1/4 tsp of nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp of cinnamon (optional)
  • Cooking spray 
  • Almonds, cashews, or pistachio for garnishing (optional)


  • Preheat the over to 325F.
  • Mix all your dry ingredients together (flour, graham flour, sugar, baking soda, and spices)
  • Whether you're kneading by hand or a food processor, slowly add your choice of oil/ghee/butter so the dough doesn't end up too soft. 
  • Once your dough is ready, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, lightly coated with cooking spray. 
  • Roll out and shape dough into equalized sized balls, "pedas" and place on the sheet.
  • If you're going for the full effect, use your thumb to make an impression in the center and place a nut (cashew, almond, or pistachio) of your choice.
  • Place your cookie sheet in the over for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Higher temperatures will burn your cookies.
  • These should be slightly crisp on the outside but crumble upon your first bite.
  • Let these cool for 10 minutes, precisely the amount of time it takes to make Tea India Masala Chai Moments. 
  • Serve and enjoy!
