Having a one-year old @ home after 7 years, doing the same thing one more time, ufff sometimes I feel tired to the Core!!! But when i see him laugh n giggle, come running to me, hug n smile, all my tiredness vanish in a moment. Like any other mother, i too started with tinned baby food for my lil one when he turned 6months, but it didn't suit him , he got rashes immediately and when i consulted my Doc, he said may be the Milk Protein in it didn't suit him. So Commercial Baby Food is Strict NO NO to him.
This Porridge is something i make for his Snack, apart from his 3 regular meal. It is Filling, Nutritious and Home-made with loads of Love. You can try making this with Beetroot, Pumpkin, Sweet Potatoes too.
Half a Medium Carrot
2 tbsp Poha/Rice Flakes
1 tsp Raisins
1/2 Cup Milk
1 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Sugar
- Scrub and wash the carrot well. Cut it into small roundels.
- Take it together with rest of the ingredients. This can be pressure-cooked or Cooked in a Microwave.
- If Pressure-cooking, Cook for 4 Whistles or until soft. If Microwaving, then take the ingredients in a Microwave-able Dish, Cook for 10 minutes @ Microwave Power medium.
- Take it out of Pressure Cooker/Oven. Let it Cool, Grind it to smooth in a mixer. The Porridge should be a bit thick, so do not add more milk or water to it.
