What an interesting way to incorporate a variety of flours into your baby’s diet at the age of 10-12 months! Not only does this roti combine varied flours, it also includes tasty and colourful veggies and greens like fenugreek leaves, bottle gourd and carrot.

Grating the veggies makes it easier for your child to chew. Chop the fenugreek also finely. This recipe introduces your baby to interesting textures and flavours, and provides ample nutrients too.

Carrots and fenugreek provide a good amount of vitamins and iron, while the ghee used to cook the rotis boosts your child’s energy levels. Serve these Jowar and Bajra Vegetable Rotis with fresh curds (preferably made with cow’s milk).
