I also made a batch of regular nankhatais using the above recipe. For making these, simply omit the vanilla essence and cocoa pwd from the above recipe. Add 1/4 tsp cardamon pwd instead. You can top the plain nankhatai with pistas, cashews, almonds or charolis. You can also add few strands of saffron to give them a good flavor. Here are my plain and chocolate nankhatais.
These Chocolate and Plain Nankhatais go to the JFI - Diwali Festival event at Cooking 4 All Seasons. JFI is the brainchild of Indira of Mahanandi.
Oh, and before I forget, these nankhatais go very well with a cup of steaming hot chocolate.
This easy, single serving of hot chocolate is just off the box of Hershey's Cocoa pwd. Here's how I make it:
1 cup milk - microwaved for 2 mins.
2 tsp sugar
2-3 tsp cocoa pwd
A pinch of salt
1/4 tsp vanilla essence
Mix the sugar, cocoa & salt in a large drinking mug. Slowly our the hot milk, stirring gently all the time. Add the vanilla, stir and enjoy.
This easy hot chocolate is also off to the FIC - Brown event at TongueTicklers.
