This was the first solid food given to Joshua. He just loved it 🙂

Please refer my next post,  if you are introducing solids for the first time.

  2. 1/2 cup Roasted & Split Chick Peas
  3. 1 cup Milk

Method – To make Rice & Split Chick Peas powder :

  1. In a dry pan, roast Rice and Split Chick Peas in Medium flame until it turns golden brown.
  2. Grind it until fine and store it in an airtight container.

To make Rice Porridge :

  1. Mix 2 – 3 table spoon of Rice powder in equal quantity of water / milk. Make sure that there are no lumps.
  2. While heating the milk, slowly add the Rice paste.
  3. Stir continuously until a fine porridge is formed.

Nutritional Information:

This is an excellent source of Carbohydrates & Proteins.

Note : 

  1. Always follow the Four day rule while introducing a new food to the baby.
  2. Milk / Rice powder proportions can be altered to suit the baby’s age.
  3. Rice is the least allergic food that you can offer your baby, however if your baby constipates, you can try Oats Porride. ( I will be posting it shortly!)
