INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup jowar / sorghum flour
  • ½ cup oats flour
  • 1 tablespoon white sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (can use olive oil or ghee instead)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 large or 2 small over ripe banana
METHOD
  1. Sieve the jowar flour, oats flour and cinnamon powder into a mixing bowl. Our dry ingredients are ready.
  2. In another bowl mash the banana and add oil to it and blend well.
  3. Add this banana oil mixture to the dry ingredients. Add sesame seeds and mix everything well using your hands.
  4. Knead the mixture to get a soft dough using water as required.
  5. Meanwhile we will preheat the pressure cooker. Take a 5 liter wide mouth old pressure cooker. Add 2 cups of salt to it. Place a stand over the salt. Remove the whistle and gasket of the cooker lid. Cover the cooker and heat on medium flame for 15 minutes. If using oven, preheat the oven at 180 Degress Celsius for 15 minutes.
  6. Divide the dough ball into two portions.
  7. Roll out each dough ball to ¼ inch thickness sheet.
  8. Prick with fork all over the sheet.
  9. Cut the sheet into desired shape using a cookie cutter or knife. Just make sure the shape you choose , should not have sharp edges, as it may hurt the gums of your baby.
  10. Place the cut out dough on a tray. Keep the tray on the rack of preheated cooker and cover the cooker with a lid for about 25-30 minutes on low to medium flame. You may bake the biscuits in a preheated oven at 180 Degree Celsius for 17-20 minutes. Keep a watch after 15 minutes as temperature may vary from oven to oven.
  11. Allow the biscuits to cool down to room temperature before transferring them to an air tight container.
