Mashed Vegetables for Baby Food

Print Recipe
Make these mashed vegetables for baby food in bulk and store it to use in your kids' daily food such as khichdis, poha, dalia, upma…you name it.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium-sized carrots
  • 1 tomato
  • 4-5 florets cauliflower
  • Approx. 15 green peas
  • 1 inch piece of bottle gourd
  • 1 inch piece of cabbage

Instructions

  • Wash the vegetables thoroughly to remove any trace of pesticide. I usually soak the vegetables in water with some Tollyjoy or Mee Mee Vegetable Liquid Cleanser added to it for about 5 minutes. Then I wash the vegetables thoroughly with water.
  • Cut the tomato in 4 pieces.
  • Peel the carrots.
  • Chop the vegetables other than the green peas finely.
  • Cook the vegetables in a pressure cooker on medium flame for about 10-15 minutes (5-6 whistles).
  • Peel the tomatoes and green peas. If your kid is old enough to chew food properly, you can leave the peels on. You can omit this and the next step if you would like to use a blender to make a fine paste of the cooked vegetables.
  • Mash the vegetables using a masher. For older babies, mash the vegetables coarsely as you want them to gradually learn how to chew food.
  • Store the mashed vegetables in an airtight container like Tupperware after the mixture cools down. Please freeze this mixture instead of just refrigerating it.
