3-Ingredient Kid-Friendly Biscuits: Sugarless Paro Cookies With Whole Wheat, Jaaggery


There's a lot that goes into baking healthy stuff, right? When you want to bake for kids, you have got to watch out the ingredients closely. What kind of fat is good for kids? What type of flour should be used? Do we need more fiber? Will this particular ingredient work in a kid-friendly recipe? Of course, you don't want to include anything that would go against the health of your tiny tot and turn the cookie unhealthy. Well, if you, too, are looking for a healthy cookie recipe for kids, your wishes have been granted here. My parents were returning to their home so I wanted to make healthy biscuits for everyone, especially my little 2-year-old niece Paro. So what next? Thus sprung upon the idea of these Paro cookies or teething biscuits.

So let's start with this simple cookie recipe.
We have already listed the ingredients on top.

A Little about Paro- my niece and her favorite Kid-Friendly recipes prepared for her by bhua:
Paro is not her real name. It is only how I have been calling her since her birth. She responds to this name.
My 2-year-old Paro loves everything bhua makes. She is deeply attached to both her bhuas. I have baked many cookies for her. Her most favorite ones were the nankhatais without baking powder/soda.
She also fell in love with multigrain bourbon biscuits made by her bhua.
The whole wheat coconut cookies were also a hit with her.
How can I forget the oats chocolate kulfi for kids or even homemade chocolate that I made for her?
I remember how Paro literally fought with her mom to get a taste of oats kulfi.

Here's how to make Eggless kid-friendly atta cookies at home

Take a bowl.
Add malai or ghee to it. I have used malai or cream.
Throw in dry jaggery powder. Make sure there are no grits of jaggery. If it does have, run the jaggery in a processor or grinder and powder it. This will ensure that jaggery does not ooze out from the cookies while baking.
Whisk jaggery and malai/ghee until the mix looks light and fluffy. Add cardamom powder.
Sift wheat flour in a separate bowl 3-4 times.
Stir whole wheat flour into the ghee-sugar mixture.
It should be a loose, sticky dough. If it looks tight or dry, add 1-2 tbsp of milk.
DO NOT KNEAD. The idea is to mix everything with a spoon or spatula and leave it covered for 20-30 minutes. 
Preheat the oven or convection to 170 degrees. I have airfried the kid-friendly cookies. Preheat the airfryer for 5 mins.
Roll out the dough like a thick chapati on a flat surface.Do not keep these cookies too thick or too thin.
Use a cookie cutter to cut shapes and bake the kid-friendly cookies for 12 mins or until the sides start to brown.
Allow the kid-friendly atta cookies to cool down before sharing these baked beauties with your tiny tot.
Do not forget to write to me about your kid's experience with these simple cookies for kids!

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

OPOS Sambar: Hotel-Style Sambar With No Fuss; Ready in 10 Minutes

Think of South Indian food, and idli, sambar, and dosa would strike your mind first of all! Isn't it?






















Yes, this is the quintessential south Indian menu that has become widely popular world over for its rich taste, unique flavors, and nutritional boost! Well, this is exactly what inspires most of us north Indians to cook south Indian food. I  must admit I love Chettinad cuisine, Malayali food, and of course, Tamil recipes.

Savor any recipe bursting with coconut flavor and you would want to have it again and again. At least, this is my experience! South Indian food has been instrumental in making me a coconut lover. Don't believe?

Taste food from south Indian cuisine and you would know it yourself. The best thing is south Indians make the most yummiest of food in the simplest of way while not tempering much with the nutritional portion.
