Onion is very much ok. In fact it has medicinal qualities that can ward off cold and cough, esp if you have white onion available.

You do need to watch for any reactions as some components of curry or even chili powder may give baby a rash)
When Can I Add Spices to Baby's Food?
A majority of pediatricians will recommend waiting until an infant is 8 months or older to introduce spices. This recommendation often has more to do with staving off digestive upsets than it does with possible allergic reactions. Like any other new food, please follow the "4 day wait rule" when introducing spices!
As always, please discuss the introduction and use of herbs and spices with your baby's pediatrician!

hi all, my son suraj is 7 months old. I give him old dal/curd rice for lunch. At this point what else can i give him? I have been continuing rice/mixed grain/oats cereals for him for breakfast. But iam not satisfyed with this. Pls suggest me any other good healthy food which i can prepare or get here in shops (US).
As there are no elders here at home, iam really worried. pls advice.
Suvidhya - How about fruit/veggie purees? Bananas/apples are a good way to start. Also sweet potatoes/avocados. Also have a look at all the recipes in this thread for ideas.
It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.

Giving rasam with little tomato is fine.I hope your are not thinking to feed him tomato by itself as it is not a very good idea.You can try vegetable purees like sweet patotoes,green beans,squash,peas etc..,
