This mildly flavoured combination of rice with a vegetable (coriander) and a dairy product (curds) helps you to introduce more flavours to your baby’s food. It paves the way for her to adapt to the family food more easily later on, when she is about a year old.
This is a great recipe for a hot summer lunch. You can even grate a little bit of carrots or cucumber into this dish as a variation.

Cooking Time : 15 mins.
Preparation Time : 5 mins.

Makes 3/4 cup.

2 tablespoons rice, washed
1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera)
a pinch asafoetida (hing)
3 to 4 tablespoons fresh curds (yoghurt)
1 tablespoon chopped coriander
1/2 teaspoon ghee or oil
salt to taste
1. Heat the ghee in a pan and add the cumin seeds.
2. When the seeds crackle, add the asafoetida and the rice and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes.
3. Add approx ¾ cup of water and cook till the rice is overdone and can be mashed easily.
4. Cool the rice, add the curds, coriander and salt and blend it slightly to make a rough purée. Serve at room temperature.
