For Wheat Cerelac Porridge

To make powder
  1. Take a cup of wheat flour(Chapathi flour) & ⅛ tsp cardamom powder in a mixing bowl.
  2. Mix wheat flour & cardamom powder well. Take 2 tbsp butter & melt it.
  3. Add melted butter and mix well with flour.
  4. Sprinkle little water(nearly ¼ cup) & combine them into a dough. Just combine. No need to knead.
  5. Roll it using rolling pin. Cut vertically & horizontally. I made big rectangles as I tried to make biscuits. You can make small squares so that powdering will be easier.
  6. Take out the corner shapeless pieces. Even-sized pieces will be baked evenly. Prick holes with fork to avoid puffing up while baking. Puffed portions tend to brown sooner and so pricking is recommended.
  7. I made lil thick pieces. Make ball with the collected corner pieces, roll it again, cut & prick holes. Repeat this process until dough is over.
  8. Transfer the biscuits to parchment/butter paper placed in a baking tray. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 180 degrees Celsius.
  9. Bake for 20 to 30 mins depending on the thickness of the biscuit. Bake until back of the biscuit is in golden brown. Do not darken it as it will taste bitter. Mine took 25 mins as I made thick biscuits.
  10. Cool down and grind it in a mixer grinder. Fine or coarse is your choice as per your baby's preference. I ground lil coarse.
  11. Store in air-tight container. In room temperature, it stays good for 1 month. You can store upto 3 months in fridge.
To make porridge
  1. Take 1 or 2 tbsp of homemade wheat cerelac powder in baby's bowl.
  2. Add hot or warm water and mix to desired consistency.
