Be specific to clean out and chose only boneless pieces. cut them to tiny chunks so that they get mashed easily.

  • Add Turmeric powder ,Garam masala, Chilly powder & Masoor dal. Mix well and add rice, water and salt. Rice water ratio is 1:5. Add less if you feel its high, but keep in mind we are adding water also for the dal and chicken to get mashed.

It is suggested by the pediatrician that food should never be pulsed after cooking, So mash them with masher or hands.

Soak the rice and dal for an hour or more if you want to get cooked faster and it will also be helpful for kids to digest them easily.

Notes

For babies, we would need the rice mashed and cooked well. so go ahead adding 1:5 ratio rice:water. but depending upon the quality of rice, this may vary between 3-5 cup water. If you do not want even tiny chunks, grind the rice coarsely (Just a pulse) and other ingredients before cooking so that everything gets mashed well.
