This is the most convenient and versatile baby food mix ever. I don’t know what I would have done without this. You can start it right from 6 months and use it until the age of 2 years or more. And the ingredients in it can grow with your baby. And the best part, this food mix is such a versatile base for adding any new ingredient that you don’t need to cook separately for your baby every single time.
Baby food guide-
Stage 1 – Use only rice as you start solids from 4-6 months
Stage 2 – Start adding one daal. Start with the less gassy variety like moong daal or urad daal first.
Stage 3 – You can gradually start adding a mix two / three or more daals with every batch you make.
How to use?
Mix 2 tbsp of this power with about a cup of water. stir and bring to a boil. Make sure there are no lumps. Reduce the heat and cook on low for 4-5 minutes until the desired consistency.
To add any ingredients:
Mix 2 tbsp or more with about one and half cup of water. Stir and bring to a boil. Add in a few pieces of cooked meat / vegetables from your meal. (if you think its too spicy / salty, give it a quick rinse with clean water before adding) Cook for 4-5 minutes until thick. Blend completely or leave it chunky based on the age and preference of your baby.
Don’t have any cooked meat / veggies on hand? No worries. You can prepare a quick flavorful bowl of nutritious baby food by giving it a light tempering with just 3 ingredients. Heat butter / ghee, add 1/4 teaspoon of ginger – garlic paste, 3-4 curry leaves. Be careful with the spluttering. Immediately add a cup of water, add a pinch of salt (only for babies older than an year) and about 2 tbsp of the powered mix. Cook for 4-5 minutes and serve
