There was a Dutch couple who set up a bakery in the city to meet the bakery demands of the Dutch immigrants in the city. When the Dutch left India, the bakery was taken over by an Iranian family who started selling dried bread at low prices. The crispy dried bread recipe got so popular that with time, it gave birth to dried bread biscuits that were known as the naan khatai. The main ingredients used for the traditional Nan khatai was flour, honey, butter, sugar and baking powder.
