If your baby is getting a bit older and past the jarred baby food stage, here is something that may interest you. Try this delicious Cracked Wheat (aka Daliya) Khichdi. Cracked wheat, a wheat product made from whole raw wheat kernels that are crushed or cut into smaller pieces, has a great deal of nutrition and fiber since it includes the fiber and nutrient rich outer bran and germ of the wheat. Pair this with some protein (mung daal) and veggies and you have a well balanced (and don’t forget – flavorful) meal for your growing child.

Peas/Carrots (or your choice of veggies) – 1 cup
Salt – to taste
Turmeric Powder – 1/8 tsp
Asafoetida (Hing) – 1/8 tsp
Water – 4 cups

Method:

1. Heat Clarified Butter (Ghee) in a pressure cooker.
2. Add Cracked Wheat (Daliya) to the hot ghee and roast until fragrant (approx 2 minutes).
