Is this a soft diet for typhoid patient?
| Hide Replies
Tarla Dalal    As soft diet for a typhoid patient at first instance should include foods like banana, boiled rice, baked potato, boiled eggs, stewed or baked apple etc. When there is no fever, you can include other fruits and boiled vegetables too. Once you can digest these foods you can move to a recovery diet which an include this rice and moong dal idli to make up for your protein requirement.

Hi mam recipe seems to b very healthy n delicious bt can I give dis to my one year baby ? As dees fruit salt in ut

Tarla Dalal    You can avoid the fruit salt, but the idli might turn a little hard. In this case you need to serve it to your child immediately after cooking. Or use a pinch of fruit salt instead of 1 tsp.
