  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup powdered sugar.( according to taste)
  • ¼ tsp baking soda(avoid for babies below one year old)
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter (if you use salted adjust the salt you add)
  • salt to taste
  • ¼ tsp cardamom powder
  • ½ tsp ginger powder
  • 1 tbsp semolina (rava)
  1. Preheat oven at 325 degrees Celsius. Beat sugar and butter till creamy.
  2. Add cardamom, ginger and salt and beat again. Add baking soda and beat once .
  3. Little by little, add flour and mix till the mixture becomes crumbly. ( I used the hand blender here too. You can also add chopped nuts at this point)
  4. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and knead lightly to form a dough. Don't overdo it.
  5. Make small rolls and place on a greased and floured baking tray, an inch apart from each other. You can use the bottom of a steel tumbler to flatten them slightly.
  6. Bake for 15 min. Once cracks appear on the surface, they'll be done soon. Over cooking might lead to the base getting burnt.
