Devansh likes some accompaniment like dal, curd, or loads of ketchup to soften his parathas or chillas. Curd works well during day time but I avoid giving him curd at night or when he has cough/cold. I wasn’t too keen on giving him lots of readymade ketchup until I came across this Flat Tummies organic ketchup that I have written about earlier.
I reserve giving him ketchup if he’s having parathas or chillas as a snack. But if we’re having them as our dinner, then I make this really simple, no-frills dal for him as an accompaniment. This simple dal recipe for babies, toddlers, kids, hardly requires any preparation, gets cooked fast, and is an easy way to add lentils and thus protein in kiddo’s diet.
This dal recipe is handy when you have made parathas for the rest of the family and don’t want to cook something elaborate separately for your toddler or a younger kid, who may not want to eat the paratha with a pickle or chutney.
You can give this dal to older babies too, just soak the rice, chapati, chilla, or paratha in this dal till it becomes soft enough for them to chew. Hope you all find this super simple and quick dal recipe useful.
