This wholesome and satisfactory porridge is good for your baby now that she is growing rapidly and her appetite is also increasing. It will keep her satisfied for a couple of hours. It is a very good source of important nutrients like energy, carbohydrates, calcium, vitamin a and iron. Dates are used to sweeten this porridge as they provide iron and fibre in substantial quantities.
- Pressure cook the bulgur wheat and dates with ½ cup of water for 3 whistles. Cool.
- Liquidise the cooked bulgur wheat and dates with ½ cup of milk in a blender till it is smooth in texture.
- Transfer this into a pan and bring to boil, stirring continuously so that no lumps remain. Serve lukewarm.
- BAJRA PORRIDGE
- Occasionally, you use 1 tablespoon of whole bajra (black millet) as a substitute for 1 tablespoon of bulgur wheat.
- JOWAR PORRIDGE
- You can also add 1 tablespoon of whole jowar (white millet) instead of the bulgur wheat.
- JOWAR AND RAGI PORRIDGE
- A combination of cereals like ½ tablespoon of whole jowar (white millet) and ½ tablespoon of whole ragi (nachni) will also be a good alternative.
- You can also experiment with other combinations like jowar, bajra, ragi etc.
