Homemade Rice Dal Cereal for Babies
This rice dal cereal is ideal for babies from their 5th month itself.Rice and Moong Dal mix comes very handy, you can make instant khichdi for your baby, it is very nutritious and wholesome.Gugu survived on this rice dal khichdi and poha cereal during our trips to Kodaikanal and Karaikudi.I took an induction with me and made the porridges in the hotel room.I have not yet started milk for him so mixes like these are very handy especially during trips.Here is how to make khichdi using this homemade mix.


But remember mothers feed is the best and its always good to start with other food only after the baby finishes 6 months.These baby food recipes will help those who are not able to breast feed due to personal / medical conditions.Always consult your paediatrician before introducing any new food.

My Notes:

  • After washing the rice, you can even sundry it but I prefer roasting it as such.If you are sun drying it then make sure to keep it covered to avoid dust and insects.
  • Don't let it brown, just roast in low flame.
  • I used normal cooking rice we use, you can try with any other rice variety too.
  • But always consult your paediatrician before introducing any new food.
  • I powdered it in small mixer jar and it was nicely powdered more like our rice flour.I kept grinding it again and again to get that texture.
  • If your cereal is little coarse then you need to cook for more time.
  • You can store this in a clean jar for upto 3months.It comes handy during travel.
