My DD completed 7 months, i started giving khichdi (rice+moong dal) but she is not liking it. she spits it out always by chance if she takes something she vomits after few minutes. Can any one please let me know how to make tasty khichdi so that DD likes it.
No one I think is in my tree
I mean it must be high or low
That is you can't, you know, tune in
But it's all right
That is I think it's not too bad
Couple of things, assuming your child is not lactose intolerant:
1) Take equal measures of ponni rice and yellow moong dal, lightly roast them on low flame. (Eg, 1/4 cup each)
2) Cook in pressure cooker with 1/4 measure milk, 3/4 measure water, one pinch turmeric. (If using above measure, totally 1 1/2 cup liquids.
3) Cook for 10-12 mins.
4) Heat 1tsp ghee, add pinch of hing, 2-3 fresh curry leaf, one pinch fresh cumin powder. Mix with hot mashed rice mixture. Add little salt to taste.....very little, infants like little less salt in foods.
Hopefully your child likes this, this is how I made for both my kids.
Other than what Topaz said, you may want to add one finely chopped garlic clove in ghee......Try it, it will change the taste of khichdi a lot.......Also you may add carrot.
If you prepare khichdi with a mix of little bit of masoor dal and toovar dal, it will be more healthy.
Just make sure you pressure cook it well.
One cannot MASTER everything but one can always LEARN anything.
thanks christine014, topaz, chotabeem and anugamit. I will try to feed her with this recipe after waiting for 3 to 4 days.
I sometimes feel if he sees the color to be yellow he rejects the food. Any kids doing it?
Whole jeera will cause child to spit up, I know both my boys did.....as to using pepper, I would be careful as it can cause upset tummy, which is worse than throwing up!
I tried giving khichdi to DD again but she is not eating it, but she eats if i cook dal and rice seperately. I am doing this, what ever dal (toor/moong with spinach/methi/tomato..) I cook for us/adults , taking upper layer from it when the dal is cooked. Later adding chilli powder for us seperately. Cooking rice seperately for DD and mixing the dal removed for her , she is liking it.
