An interesting way to give your child the taste and nutrition of vegetables while weaning.

This recipe has been my favourite since the days I started weaning my daughter. The reason: it was quick, has lots of vegetables and is definitely a healthy one. This recipe was an exclusive pre-dinner entity for most of the days while trying different flavours and texture of food. As the name suggests, the combination is little wired and one of my experimented with this weaning recipe that it became her favourite too. If you have a fussy eater like mine, probably you can give this a try. Here is one more weaning recipe -- apple badam kheer.

Ingredients

  • 1 boiled and mashed potato
  • cup beetroots
  • cup carrots
  • cup green beans
  • Water as needed
  • Badam powder (optional)
  • Salt (optional, avoid giving it till at least one year of age)

  • In a pressure cooker, cook all the vegetables for 5 to 10 minutes and remove from the flame.
  • Next mash them well and add water as required to get your desired consistency. I never used a blender or mixer for this purpose.
  • Next add the mashed potato to this mix. It gives a smooth consistency to the soup and adds texture to it.
  • Give spoonfuls to your baby to relish this dish.

Recipe suitable for 7 months+ babies.
