naan khatai my favorite white biscuits. These are baked biscuits which gives more good taste than any other types of biscuits. I have a baking oven and I always bake them myself. I like nan khatai to serve with tea and enjoy.

nan khatai is very delicious and scrumptious and yummy cookie biscuits. I do not like any other kinds of biscuits but only cookies like this. Because it is very crispy and when it is browned, it will give more better taste.
