Sweets made with besan have always been my favorite. So when I encountered this cookie a few years ago, during spring at a specialty store featuring chickpea flour, I was thrilled. I was even more excited by seeing the ingredients, they were similar to what we use in making Besan ladoo and Besan burfi. The recipe was so much easier. Since then, I have been making these cookies every Baisakhi. These chickpea flour cookies with pistachios are melt in mouth Persian treat, traditionally known as Nan-e Nokhodchi.
It would be a pity to deprive yourself of these petite cookies because they are very simple to prepare and delicious. Perfect for kids, (or an adult's) party or to celebrate a festive and joyful occasion .
