Author’s note – While I prepared Naan Khatai using this recipe, I felt that I should have reduced sugar a little bit. So please take care of this tip. But it’s my personal opinion only, as I don’t like sweets and desserts with extra sweetness. You can add cardamom to enhance its aroma, and also place pistas at centre of Naan Khatai before baking.
