Nan Khatai

 Flour (maida) - 3 and 1/2 cups (You can also use 3 cups maida with 1/2 cup sooji rawa)
Sugar(ground in a mixie) - 1 cup 
Butter (use margarine if you can) - 1 cup 
Soda Bi Carbonate (baking soda) - half tea spoon (about 3 grams)
Salt - A pinch (to taste)
Mix flour, baking soda and salt.
Take margarine (butter) in a vessel and cream it with a wooden spoon till soft and fluffy.
Add the powdered sugar and cream it well. 
Add the flour mixed with baking soda and salt, little by little and mix gently to make a dough. The dough will be difficult to keep together, it is normal that it will keep falling apart.
Divide into small balls with your palms and flatten slightly to get a cookie shape. 
Keep arranged on a baking tray and bake at 180 degrees celcius for 15 minutes.
If you can see inside the oven, make sure the cookies are not becoming brown in colour. It has to be just off-white in colour.
Remove from oven, keep to cool. It will become hard and ready to eat after cooling. 

Enjoy tasty nan-khatais!!
