Some Indian and Vegetarian Baby Food Recipes
I used to be confused as to what Indain baby food I can for my babe. Indian baby food in my opinion would introduce him to a different taste that he was getting from gerber. And for those looking for Vegetarian baby and toddler food alternatives, these can work too. Of course, check with your doc on ingredients if you have concerns. This is a copy paste from an email from my mom back in India.
2TB.SP. MASOOR DAL (MASOOR – SPLIT ORANGE LENTILS, AVAILABLE IN INDIAN STORES)
QWATER INCH SIZED WHOLE ONION
1 CUP WATER
BRING THE WATER TO BOIL.
ADD FRESHLY WASHED MASOOR DALALONG WITH ONION.
KEEP THE LID SLIGHTLY OPEN.
BOIL UNTIL THE DAL IS TENDER.OR PRESSURE COOK FOR 5 MINS.
ADD SALT AND DILUTE WITHBOILED WATER IF NECESSARY
