In the US we have some finishes that are specifically designed to be food safe. You may not have them available to you in India. A fairly common finish that is food safe is shellac. It is actually edible, but I would not recommend eating it.

I would expect you can find shellac in India. Note that it is not a very durable finish and it is not heat resistant.
