Healthy and Tasty Food for Your 6-month-old Baby

Hello to all the super women (mothers) out there. I’m a mother of cute, naughty twins (a boy and a girl). They are six-and-a-half-month-old and have started having solids since half a month. I have tried some recipes for them which I think are great for their health. My babies were born premature and their birth weight was only 1.7 kgs each but now they have grown up to be 7 kgs each.  They are truly a miracle for me. So, now let me share the recipe with you.

Millet Rice Porridge (Bhaidku)

Bhaidku is a Gujarati recipe, and since I am Gujarati, I thought I could share this recipe with you. In my family, Bhaidku is a tradition now. My great grandfather used to have it in dinner every single day and this tradition has continued to be our favourite since then (or even before). Bhaidku is healthy, light, and nutritious.

You will need:

1. Bhaidku aata (you’ll find it in any grocery/general store. If not, its made with millet, rice, and green half moong after grinding.
2. Water
3. Turmeric

How to Make

1.Take 1 or 2 tablespoons of bhaidku aata in a bowl and slowly add water to it. Mix it well so that no lumps are formed.

2. Heat some water (approximately 2 cups) in a sauce pan.

3. Let it simmer for half a minute then add turmeric to it. When the water starts boiling, add the mixture made from bhaidku aata and water, and keep stirring until it becomes semi-liquid.

4. Turn off the flame, your millet-rice porridge (bhaidku) is ready.

This healthy recipe can be tried by anyone – it’s healthy and tasty! You can serve it with milk and ghee to your baby. Your baby will love it, and you will be happy on seeing your little one eat healthy food.
