Semi-Solid Recipe for 7-10 months Baby

After 6 months of breastfeeding, begin with liquids of rice and pulses.


By 7 months, your baby is ready for some real food. Since no teeth, you have to grind it and make a smooth paste.


The following recipe is great for growing babies and their dietary needs.


Try it because it is full of carbohydrates from rice and potato, protein from pulses, vitamins and minerals from vegetables, and fibre from all ingredients. With or without zeera or cumin, this dish is tasty and healthy.

Ingredients for 3 servings:

  1. 4 French beans
  2. 1 medium red tomato
  3. 1 medium carrot
  4. 1 small potato
  5. 1 tbsp. rice
  6. 1 tbsp. pulses of your choice (masoor, chana, moong)
  7. 1/4 tsp. cumin or zeera whole (optional)

Method:

In a saucepan, add water and let it boil.
Meanwhile, chop all the vegetables in small pieces.
Wash the rice and pulses thoroughly.
Now add the vegetables, rice and pulses into the water and let it cook.
I never gave spices to my baby's food, but at 7 months I thought of adding a new flavour to her usual food. Zeera is a safe spice for babies. Infact it has some positive effects on your baby's health like increasing appetite, curing diarrhea and indigestion. Zeera has no peculiar taste as it is bland. Just the fragrance of zeera gives the dish a new feel. 
Grind the whole cooked mixture into a smooth paste.
Serve it warm with ghee or butter.

Caution:

  • Do not add salt to baby food.
  • After 8-9 months, try making a course paste with few vegetables in chunky form.
  • 10 months onwards try feeding the dish as it is in solid form.
