    7. 7
      Mix well using YOUR HANDS AND ONLY YOUR HANDS (DO NOT USE A BEATER).
    8. 8
      If the mixture is too hard, you may add a little melted ghee.
    9. 9
      Tip: The mixture should be a little looser than that of wheat flour, oil, salt and water (roti/chappati mixture).

      Make small round balls (nankatais') out of the mixture.
    11. 11

      Dear Charishma,this one's a super Nankatai recipe. The measurements came out to be 3 cups flour, 1 cup sugar (not powdered) and 4 tablespoons of ghee. (I'm adding these for those who don't have a weighing scale - like me.) Purrrrfect! I used powdered cardamom instead of pineapple essence and left out the almonds. Thank you for such an easy and yummy recipe!!!
