Nankhatai is bread biscuit, famous in Pakistan, India, Iran and Afghanistan. Even the name of this biscuit is derived from Afghan and Iranian language. Word 'naan' is taken from Persian which means bread and 'khatai' has been taken from Afghan langugage which means biscuit.


Biscuits are white or yellowish white in color. It texture is usually rough. Fresh nankhatai biscuits are crispy however they become softer when it is stale and old. Their taste is very good and everyone likes to eat it. Nowadays famous biscuit manufacturers have started producing these biscuits as you might have seen LU nan khatai and some other brands.
