Eggless Chocolate Nankhatai Recipe (With Step-by-Step Pictures)

by - April 18, 2020

Quarantine made me do this. The lockdown made me do this. Luckily, I had all the ingredients from the best brownie recipe I'd made last time. Followed by which I made another batch of cookies that were for the health freaks out there, the eggless whole wheat choco chip cookies with ghee and jaggery! This time, the eggless chocolate nankhatai was what my mom was after me since years now. My parents wanted the basic nankhatai, but me being me, I added some cocoa powder to it!

If you're a frequent baker, I'm sure you'll have these ingredients at home, irrespective of the lockdown. Because the eggless chocolate nankhatai recipe requires no baking powder, no baking soda. Just the cocoa powder is enough. You can also add powdered elaichi (cardamom) to Indianize the nankhatai. I liked mine without any Indian spices.
