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.

I baked this nan khatai in the morning and served it to my parent in the evening at the tea time. Both of them were so happy to have it with tea.

always eat crispy and fresh nan khatai. if you eat non-fresh, you wouldn't like it and then you would think it is not a good cookie. I once bought it from two different bakeries and one of them was very good while other was stale. Then after that I either buy from good one bakery or I make it myself.
