Nankhatai Recipe | How to Make Nan Khatai in Pressure Cooker Without Oven:
Nankhatai recipe is my 7th baking recipe in my pressure cooker. You can bake them in your microwave oven too with the same ingredients. Nan Khatai is more famous among Marathi People. Nan Khatai(in Hindi) is famously known as chewsburry in Tamil Nadu.
About the recipe:
Usually Naankhatai is made with maida and besan flour. I wanted to make it little bit healthy. So, I have added more wheat flour and less maida. I have made them in pressure cooker without oven.
About the taste:
As this is wheat naan khatai, it might not be as sweet as regular nan khatai. But it is surely good enough to please your kids.
About the crunchiness:
You can make it as soft nan khatai(my husband's preference) or you can make it little hard like biscuits(my preference). It is all about cooking time. Cook for more time if you want crunchy nan khatai.
To have more shelf life, you can eliminate milk completely and add just ghee for kneading. The taste will remain the same for 1 week without refrigeration. If you are adding milk, it is good to refrigerate same day or after 1 day to have more shelf life.
1. You can add butter instead of ghee. Some bakery uses dalda in making nankhatai.
2. It is always good to keep an eye after 10 minutes. If your medium flame itself is too high in your stove, you need to look before itself.
3. Baking time depends on various factors. So, time might not be the same for everyone.
4. You can learn the art of baking in pressure cooker after few trials. So, if this is your first time baking experience in pressure cooker, be patient and keep watching the consistency frequently.
