Besan Nankhatai With Cornflakes, Oatmeal: Crunchy Bites


Nankhatai is one biscuit that you love, isn't it? I am no different either. I have sampled and savored nankhatai all through my childhood,perhaps from Kwality Bakers in Patiala - my favorite bakery in my hometown. But since I no longer buy outside stuff these days, preferring to bake and make everything at home, I have tried my hands at nankhatai on previous occasions. In fact besan nankhatai was my first attempt at baking cookies!!

 I have come a long way now, trying out innumerable cookie combinations, for I love cookies but trying out the same with healthier ingredients. The market stuff is loaded with calories, but my healthy cookies are different.
While bakeries use dalda, I prefer to combine clarified butter with olive oil , sometimes substituting the buttery part with olive oil. I love my bakes this way, for they are healthier than market junk.


What do you prefer?
Taste or Health!

Ask me, and I would vie for health first and then taste. But of course, healthy stuff can be tasty too. This is what I always try to do.







You are already aware of it.
Anyway coming back to the besan nankhatai with cornflakes and oatmeal, I have tried a similar combination on a previous occasion. The nankhatai recipe got viral, and was loved by one and all. Perhaps it is one unique combination that you would want to try out soon. I am sure once you taste this batch of nankhatai, you will forget the traditional besan nankhati!
