Summary

These nankhatais have a balanced sweetness and prominent flavor of cardamom. However, the butteriness and melt in mouth texture of a classic nankhatai is missing.

Nankhatai is a popular and traditional cookie made using three main ingredients – refined wheat flour, ghee, and sugar. 

Being well-known for its dairy products, Amul recently entered the snack market and brought in a range of cookies and now nankhatais. Available in three different variants – Cashew, Almond, and Elaichi, these nankhatais are made using Amul Butter and whole wheat atta. 

For our review process, we ordered almond nankhatais from an online portal. Our entire experience is detailed in our Amul Butter Almond Nankhatai review.

Amul Nankhatai – Detailed Review

Price + Packaging 

Amul Butter Nankhatai Almond comes in an orange color box pack. The nankhatais are neatly placed in a tray. It is then securely sealed with a plastic sheet and placed in the box. In addition, it has a see-through window on the left side corner. 

The price of a 200 gm pack is Rs. 90. It has a shelf life of six months. 

Main Ingredients 

Wheat Flour (Atta), White Butter (26%), Sugar, Milk Solids, Semolina, Almond (3.7%), Elaichi (0.7%), Iodised Salt, and Baking Powder are the main ingredients used in the making of these nankhatais.

Looking at the list of ingredients, we appreciate the use of white butter rather than the use of any vegetable oil. Especially because nankhatais, traditionally, are made using ghee or butter.
