Indian Style Atta & Ajwain Biscuits
I'm an average baker, only few basic goodies I can bake. Never tried any experimental baking. But when my baby's Pediatric asked me to give my 11months old baby Marie Or Parle G biscuits, I asked him "Can I give homemade atta biscuits?" Being a blogger how can I give my baby outside packaged food, as till date he is only on home cooked food, not at all any kind of Cerelac I've given to him. We all know nothing like home cooked food. My Paed gave me an weird look as I asked for homemade biscuits, and gave the permission. So I decided to make some "Atta Biscuits" for my baby as he always give me a humble look whenever I have biscuits. Here is the healthier version of "Marie" biscuits.
