Other Traditional Indian Mithai for Diwali

A melt-in-the-mouth biscuit, with the rich aroma of ghee tinged with spicy notes of cardamom, the Nankhatai is a perfect example of Indian ingenuity in making eggless Indian cookies. This has a very deep relation with Diwali. Women often make the dough at home and go to the bakery and shape them and give it for baking in their traditional ovens or what they call it as ‘bhatti’.
