Khichdi is a complete and wholesome meal in itself, especially when served with curds. The Bulgur Wheat and Vegetable Khichdi is a good way to incorporate two food groups in one dish, namely cereals and vegetables.

At this stage, babies are capable of chewing their food, and so it is important to introduce chopped vegetables in the diet, rather than simply mashed foods.

Spinach and bulgur wheat give iron, while tomatoes and spinach give vitamin A to improve your child’s vision. Now, that’s what makes this a double hit – in taste and benefits too!
