If there was ever a doubt that cooking is more than just a means of providing sustenance, the evidence lies in my mother’s hands. She is an excellent cook, who filled our childhood with delicious and mouth watering memories of homemade cakes in her special sand cooker, paneer, snacks and munchies,
colorful fruit trifle with all the freshly available seasonal fruit, jams & jellies of pineapple, grape, mango, and (gasp!) papaya too! She was an innovative, resourceful and smart cook, who always used locally available fresh ingredients and created unique and healthy recipes of them.
My mother got this particular cereal recipe from one of her best friends more than 30 years ago, and she passed it on to so many new parents in and outside our family and every one of them gave her their thanks and said it helped their picky and skinny baby put on a little bit of weight and grow more healthy. My heartfelt thanks to my mother and to the main source of the recipe, Mrs. JY!
Here, I wanted to provide a little more scientific proof of the “healthiest” part of the ingredients and did some research and yes, this is hands down the HEALTHIEST, MOST NUTRITIOUS and the BEST food for a baby, using just 8 ingredients! Say bye-bye to commercial baby cereal. So here’s how you make it:
1. Millet or Millet Flour- 200gm
2. Whole Wheat or Whole Wheat Flour-200gm
