Baby food - home made cerelac

Hello all my food blogger friends! You must be thinking I have completely got out of touch with cooking! Thats not the case dearies. My little baby and my latest craft obsession kept me away from food blogging, but I think I am back now :)

This is a very healthy food for babies told to me by my SIL. I started this for my baby from the age of 6 months. You can prepare the powder and keep it in an air tight container and use it for a month or two. I prefer to prepare in less quantity..as mentioned below, so that I can make it fresh and often..the addition of jeera makes it quiet tasty for the baby. You can also add 1-2 almonds in this.

Ingredients :

1. 1 small cup rice (uncooked)
2. 1 small cup uncooked Moong Dhal(green with cover would be better, can use washed one also)
3. 1/2 cup Whole wheat
4. 3-4 teaspoon Jeera (cumin seeds)

Procedure :

Wash rice, daal and wheat separately and let it dry for about a day or two till it is completely dry. Dry roast rice , dhal, wheat and jeera separately. Cool and then grind all of the above into a fine powder.
Store this in an air-tight container.

While preparing for the baby:
Take a small frying pan and a teaspoon of pure ghee. Roast about 2-3 teaspoon of the above powder in ghee.

Add water. Let it cook for 3-4 mins till a paste is formed.

You can keep teh consistency of the paste thick or liquidy depending on how the baby would be comfortable in having it. Add little salt/sugar as per taste. needed.

Though I am a bit late, want to send this to
