No worries even if they poop green 🙂 you will have a feel of feeding something healthy and filling to your lo.
- 5-6 leaves Palak
- 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
- 2 nos shallots
- 1 no garlic pod
- 1/2 no tomato
- 1/4 cup rice
- 1 tbsp masoor dal (masoor/toor/moong dal)
- 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Clean the palak, pick out fresh leaves and rinse twice. chop it roughly and keep aside.
Grind everything given under to grind section to a fine paste
Heat Ghee in a cooker, add the ground paste, Rice, Dal, turmeric powder and salt.
Mix well. Add enough water. (Rice:Water in 1:3/3.5 ratio) depending upon the rice variety you use.
Cook it for 4 whistles and mash again before serving. Serve warm.
I don't puree the food after cooking most often as it may lose its nutrients and my pd suggests not to grind rice after cooking, So i opt for mashing it well by hands/ Potato Masher. If you feel the rice has to be pureed, then grind the rice and dal together to coarse powder before cooking.
