  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar. according to taste
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda avoid for babies below one year old
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick butter (if you use salted adjust the salt you add)
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 tbsp semolina rava


  • Preheat oven at 325 degrees Celsius. Beat sugar and butter till creamy.
  • Add cardamom, ginger and salt and beat again. Add baking soda and beat once .
  • 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)
  • Transfer the mixture to a bowl and knead lightly to form a dough. Don't overdo it.
  • 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.
  • Bake for 15 min. Once cracks appear on the surface, they'll be done soon. Over cooking might lead to the base getting burnt.
