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


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



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.

Add in flour and knead to a dough. Add milk if needed.

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.

Bake it for 12 to 14 mins till golden. It will be soft when you take from oven, it will harden as it cools down.

Let it cool completely. Now store this in a air tight container for a week.
