Posted on July 31, 2009. Filed under: Teething foods | Tags: , , |

This version of bread sticks is more wholesome than the regular bread sticks made from refined flour (maida). It’s also an interesting way to introduce different kinds of cereals in your baby’s diet.

Preparation Time : 1 hour
Baking Temperature : 140°C (285°F).
Baking Time : 40 mins.

Makes approx. 32 sticks.

1/4 cup jowar flour (white millet flour)
1/4 cup bajra flour (black millet flour)
1/4 cup whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon sesame seeds (til)
1/2 teaspoon fresh yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon butter
1. Combine all the ingredients except the butter and knead into a soft dough using enough warm water.
2. Add the butter and knead again till the dough is smooth and elastic.
3. Cover with a damp muslin cloth and keep aside for 25 to 30 minutes till the dough proves and is double in volume.
4. Divide the dough into 2 equal parts and roll out each portion into a 100 mm. X 125 mm. (4″ x 5″) sheet of 6 mm. (¼”) thickness.
5. Cut each sheet into 6 mm. (¼”) wide strips and separate them. Roll them individually so that they are circular and have no rough edges which can hurt baby’s gums.
6. Place them on a greased baking tray and bake in a pre-heated oven at 140ºC (285°F) for 40 minutes or till the bread sticks are crisp and golden brown.
7. Cool and store in an air-tight container.
