How to make your own baby Cereal Recipe

Ingredients (240 ml cup used)

  • 1 medium carrot (about ½ cup of cubes) (pureed) (optional)
  • 2 tbsp. Barley coarse powder (refer notes how to make)
  • 1½ cup water (can increase by another ¼ to ½ cup)
  • ½ cup milk
  • ⅛ tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 ½ tbsps. Coconut Palm sugar / jaggery / karupatti (adjust as per your taste)
  • 1 tbsp. ghee

How to make the recipe

  1. Soak barley powder in water for at least 10 mins.
  2. Puree carrot with milk and set aside.
  3. Cook barley thoroughly till all the coarse grains become smooth. It took around 15 mins on a low flame for me. Keep stirring to prevent lumps.
  4. Once thoroughly cooked, pour the carrot pure. Mix well and cook on a low flame for 2 mins. If you do not wish to use carrot for this just skip and pour milk at this step and continue.
  5. Add the cardamom powder, palm sugar and mix well.
  6. Add ghee & Cook it for a min or 2 on a low flame and off the heat
  7. Serve warm with ghee (I have added nuts since my kids can chew them, if yours cannot do not add them).
