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.
- Heat the ghee in a pressure cooker and add the cumin seeds.
- When the seeds crackle, add the asafoetida, clove, peppercorn, bottle gourd, carrot, green moong dal, rice, turmeric powder and 1¼ cups of water, mix well and pressure cook for 3 whistles.
- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
- When it is done, remove the peppercorn and clove. Mash the khichdi a little with the back of a spoon.
- Serve lukewarm with fresh curds.
