For Jam filled version

  1. After you arrange them on over proof tray, make a small dent on top with your forefinger or thumb, fill with any jam of your choice. Bake as above and store!


Nan khatais turn crisper as they cool. So take care not to over bake them as they will be soft to touch just out of the oven. They are done when bottom is firmer and starts to turn golden.
