This nourishing Moong Dal Water is an ideal weaning food, as its texture is similar to that of breast milk, which will make it comfortable for the child to enjoy it.

The water has been strained in this recipe as babies at six months cannot digest whole cereals and pulses. A few weeks later, you can stop straining it and enhance the recipe further by adding a tadka of ghee, jeera and turmeric powder.

You can also try the same recipe with masoor dal once your little one is accustomed to moong dal water.
