The Moong Dal Khichdi features an ideal combo of a cereal and a pulse, which is suitable for your baby once she has adapted to regular rice and dal mash.

This hearty and satiating combo gives not just lots of energy but also very high quality protein essential for growing babies. A small dollop of ghee moistens the dish, and also improves the flavour and aroma of the khichdi making it appeal to infants; moreover it also provides an extra burst of energy!

Try this wholesome khichdi to add more variety to your baby's meal along with a little iron.
