Ingredients
  • Broken Wheat - 2 tbsp
  • Dates - 2
  • Almonds - 4
  • Powdered jaggery - 1.5 tbsp (optional)
  • Water - ¼ cup + ¾ cup
  • Cows milk - ½ cup ( don't add for babies under one year )
Instructions
Preparation
  1. Sterilise the bowls and spoons used for feeding your baby in a vessel with hot water for five minutes and keep it immersed in the same vessel until use.
  2. Boil cows milk (if using) in a sauce pan and keep it ready.
  3. Soak almonds in water for at least 2 to 3 hours. After 3 hours, peel the skin of almonds and set aside. De-seed the dates and keep it ready.
Method
  1. Take 2 tbsp of broken wheat in a pressure cooker along with de-seeded dates, peeled alomonds. Add ¾ cup of water and close the lid of the pressure cooker. Pressure cook it for 3 whistles and open the cooker once the pressure released.
  2. Add ¼ cup of water to the powdered jaggery and boil in a separate vessel until it melts completely. Then filter out the jaggery water using a strainer. Set aside. Now take the pressure cooked broken wheat , dates and almonds in a blender along with filtered jaggery water. Blend them until smooth.
  3. Transfer the blended broken wheat into a sauce pan and switch on the flame. Add ½ cup of milk (Skip adding milk if you are preparing this porridge for a baby under one year ) to the sauce pan and mix everything slowly with a whisk. Boil the porridge in low medium flame. Stir it continuously while cooking otherwise porridge may stick to the vessel. Boil the porridge until it becomes thick. Remove from the flame once done and cool it down. The porridge becomes thick after cooling down. So switch off the flame accordingly.
