Nei Biscuit as we call in our place was my favorite. I usually buy it from bakery. But after started baking I bake my own cookies.
This biscuit is also called as shewsberry biscuit in some areas. In north India it is called as nankhatai.
It was my favorite biscuit from my childhood. Made this biscuit for the first time . I didn’t shape it correctly, will make perfect next time.
I used pinapple essence , usually vanilla essence is used , as I like the pineapple flavor , I added it.
Maida / All purpose flour – 1 cup
Ghee / Canola oil – ¼ cup
Castor sugar – ½ cup
Pineapple essence – 1 tsp
Baking powder – ¼ tsp
Sift maida and baking powder twice.
Add the flour in the bowl and add the sugar and mix well.
Add in the oil and essence and mix well.
Knead into soft smooth dough.
Shape into small balls and press slightly and arrange in the baking tray with 1 cm apart.
Nankhatai is ready to serve.
