Ingredients

  • Papaya - 1/2 cup chopped
  • Water - as needed

Instructions

Preparation

  • Sterilize 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.

Method

  • Wash papaya in running water well. Then peel the skin off from the papaya with a peeler and remove the seeds. Seeds are edible but babies can't digest it. So it's better to remove them. Then chop them into equal size small cubes.
  • Steam the chopped papaya pieces in a steamer for 10 minutes if desired otherwise, you can skip it and directly blend it to make a puree. Once the papayas are steamed, it will be soft and transparent. Now blend it with little water to a smooth paste in a blender. You can steam it with Idli steamer plate by adding a cup of water or pressure cook it with a cup of water for 2 whistles. For both steaming and blending, I use Philips Avent Combined Steamer and Blender.
