Chocolate Nankhatai – Indian Shortbread Cookies made with ghee

 Nankhatai are Indian shortbread cookies that are made with clarified butter or ghee instead of butter and get a rich flavour with the addition of chickpea flour or beasn.

My Pepper Tap Review and Recipe for Spaghetti Aglio e Olio

To say it briefly, lately, my life has been a mess. Shifting homes is turning out to be way more chaotic than I had ever imagined.
