Healthy Biscuits for Babies - Teething Biscuits - Finger Food for Babies



For other finger food recipes, Check here.

Many of you have been asking to share baby teething biscuit recipe, I have been giving maha milk bikis or marie biscuits daily. But somedays i like to make some homemade cookies or biscuits for her. For babies it is not recommended to add any rising agent like baking soda or powder. So it is best to go for a shortbread kind of cookies.

Oneday i thought of making a wheat cookies with ghee. First i thought of adding jaggery in the cookies, but i was confused that if i need to add jaggery it has to be melted and strained. So i was not sure whether that liquid will make a perfect cookie. So i thought of adding panangkarkandu which is also called as rock sugar. I added some ginger powder for flavour and the cookies turned out brilliant..


Hope you will give this a try and not only your baby, you too can enjoy this healthy and tasty one.


Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 12 to 14 mins
Makes : 20 Biscuits

Ingredients:


Wheat Flour / Atta - 1 cup

Rock Sugar / Panangkarkandu - 1/2 cup Powdered
Ghee - 1/4 cup
Dry Ginger Powder / Chukku Podi - 1/2 tsp
Milk - 2 to 3 tblspn

(MY 1 CUP MEASURES 240 ML)


Method:


Preheat oven to 180 degree C.


Take ghee and sugar in a bowl. Mix well. Add in milk and mix well till creamy.


Now add in dry ginger powder and mix well.

Now roll this between two sheets of plastic wrap.


Trim of the egdes and cut into strips.


Remove it carefully using a spatula and place on a foil lined baking sheet.

  9. Hi aarthi,
    Your recipes are awesome.. Keep going.. I follow ur blog regularly.. I have a doubt.. Wheat flour you have used in this recipe is homemade or store bought? Also can we give porridge to babies by using store bought wheat flour? We buy aashirvaad multi grain flour for us. Can we give this to babies?
