Hi Folks! The recipe am gonna share is a baby food yet not a tasty food for adults as I didn’t add salt and other spices for flavoring.
You can give this food to babies who attained 6 months or 180 days old but in a very soft and creamy texture. Also, you should start with 2 or 3 tablespoons max if your baby has completed his/her half year recently. Moreover, you can change the measurement according to your baby’s age. Before introducing food to your baby, it is always recommended to consult your paeditrician who will say when and what should you give to your little one.
Now, coming to the recipe…
- Batter – 3 tbsp
- Onion – 1/2
- Tomato – 1
- Ghee – 1 tsp
- Sesame/Gingelly Oil – 1 tbsp
Firstly, take one cup of batter which should not be in sour taste. To attain this, you can grind the batter(rice and Urad dhal mixture) in the previous day night and use it for next day morning. This batter is good to use as it might got fermented somewhat.
Now, apply ghee and pour 3 or 4 tablespoons of batter to the plate in a Idli Cooker or in a cup and make sure you are boiling this by steaming.
On the other hand, finely chop the onion and tomato. Now, heat oil in a kadai (frying pan) and add the chopped onion into it. Make sure the vessel is in a high flame while doing it. Now, saute for 2 minutes and simmer the stove. Once the onion slightly turns golden color, add the tomatoes into it. Now, saute for a minute and wait until your tomatoes get mushy. Once you see the oil separates, you can turn off the flame.
Now, let the mixture cool and grind it into a soft paste without any lumps in it. Now it is ready to serve. If you want to add breastmilk into the paste to make it liquified, you can add some.
