RICE PORRIDGE RECIPE| ARISI KANJI–BABY FOODS

rice porridge recipe
Last week Sendhil was down with stomach upset.So my MIL made this porridge for his breakfast.We too had the same.It was so filling,healthy and tasty too.We usually make this kanji when we are down with fever or stomach upset.The rice, moong dal and cumin seeds combination helps for quick digestion,soothes our stomach,tongue and makes this porridge flavourful.My MIL told the same can be given for 7-8 months babies too.But give it slightly watery if u are giving for first time.We had given this for Raksha when she was young.So I thought of blogging it under health food as well as baby food(two in one postSmile).
Some of u may wonder why I changed my template.
As my previous template had some issues,I had restored my old one with little changes.But still I am working on some other designs to bring out what I imagined.Hope it would work:).

rice porridge step by step
  • For babies,add powdered cumin seeds in lesser quantity.Add more ghee based on the age.


NOTE

  • Replace ghee by oil or use less ghee if making for sick people.Adding more ghee makes the digestion slow.
  • Addition of moong dal is optional.I usually add it for flavour.
  • Give this porridge only for babies above 7 months.
  • To make it instantly,u can roast moong dal and rice.Powder & store in a box.Mix a tsp of this powder in water and make porridge adding salt or sugar.
  • For adult roast cumin seeds in oil and then powder them.
I had with small onions as side dish.It was yummy !Smile

  12. The recipe looks very delicious. I will try this for my baby. This looks so smooth and adding of dal makes it healthier for kids. Recently I bought Rice Sattva for my baby and it was very nutritious and healthy. It was delicious and easy to cook. I sometimes buy baby food from firstcry.com, they have nutritious food items for babies & kids. http://www.firstcry.com/formula-and-supplements/2/79
