Porridge for Babies, Mixed Grains Porridge Recipe
When it comes to making porridge for babies, this recipe of mixed grains porridge is ideal and nutritious apart from being very easy to cook.
- 3-4 tbsp of mixed grains powder You can make it at home or you can use readymade ones like Wholesum Foods - Ragi Satva. I've shared the link above.
- 1-2 tbsp homemade ghee You can use readymade ghee of good quality if you don't have homemade one.
- Approx. 1 cup milk breast milk/formula for babies younger than one year
- Grated jaggery or chikki jaggery as it's easy to dissolve. Preferably use organic, chemical-free jaggery.
Keep a non-stick kadai (pan) on the burner, and add ghee.
Add mixed grains powder, and mix it properly with the ghee.
After roasting the powder for a minute or so add milk. (For babies younger than one year, cook the porridge in water and then add breast milk/formula to it later. (After step #5.)
Keep stirring till the porridge almost reaches the desired consistency. Try to smoothen out the lumps as you stir.
Just before the porridge reaches desired consistency, add grated jaggery and mix it well with the porridge, and then turn off heat.
