Ragi Porridge



Starting the solid food to the baby is the very big task and the mothers have to be very careful in preparing the items. Always use separate pan, spoon and plates and that should be thoroughly sterilized.


                                                             RAGI PORRIDGE  - serve - 1Baby


INGREDIENTS:
Ragi Flour  (finger millet) -  2 tspn
sugar  - ¼ tspn
ghee - 1 drop
salt – ¼ pinch
water - 150 ml



METHOD:
Mix ragi powder in 100 ml water and strain it on white muslin cloth (or) tea strainer, do it again with 50 ml water.

In  a small vessel bring to boil for 5 minutes stirring continuously without  any lumps then add sugar and salt, now allow the ragi porridge to simmer for 5 minutes on medium flame stirring occasionally. Finally add ghee.


From 4th month of your baby we can start solid food, very first is the ragi porridge. For initial giving we have to try a little porridge to the baby and it is very healthy and good for bones. After sixth month we can add milk to the porridge for preparation.


For my two sons I used to give them first Ragi Porridge,  Ragi with milk porridge, then  i’ll Prepare sathu mavu at home and give them.
