Wheat flour porridge

baby recipe foodPorridge is a healthy diet for small babies. As they are not onto regular food wheat flour porridge is ideal for digestion. It is also said that wheat flour porridge removes excess phlegm accumulated for the baby. It is a light meal and delicious too due to its sweetness. You can avoid sugar if baby takes it plain. Add a pinch of salt.

I  recommend sugar as it tastes good with wheat flour. Try this out.

Ingredients :

  • 2 teaspoons of ghee
  • 5 teaspoons of wheat flour
  • Pinch of elaichi powder ( cardamon)
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • 1 cup of milk

Procedure :

  1. Heat ghee in a kadai. Reduce the flame.
  2. On a low flame add wheat flour and roast well till you get the smell of cooked atta.
  3. Mix in elaichi powder and sugar.
  4. Take ½ cup milk and mix the atta . Ensure there are no lumps and the powder is thoroughly mixed.
  5. Boil the remaining milk and gradually add the atta mixture to it.
  6. Keep stirring continuously, till the mixture is cooked and pasty. Watch out for any lumpy formation.

Feed the baby when warm enough that the baby can take into his mouth. If your baby has a liking to this meal you can prepare the same with Rava also.

Gradually you can add mashed banana / mashed apple / cheeku ( sapota) and make the meal more enjoyable. The baby will be delighted with new and tasty food.
