Khichdi is a complete meal in itself, providing plenty of energy, protein and folic acid for your baby.

This yummy Vegetable Khichdi is all the more nutritious, thanks to the addition of vitamin A rich carrots. The appealing colour, soft texture and slight sweetness of cooked carrots also improve the flavour and texture of this meal.

All in all, this recipe is a good way of introducing your child to a mildly-spiced dish.
