Khichdi is a complete and wholesome meal in itself, especially when served with curds. This is also a good way to incorporate 2 food groups in one dish i. e. A cereal and vegetables. By this time, baby will also begin to "chew" her food and the chopped vegetables in this recipe are a good introduction for that too!
