Jaulo : Nepali baby food

Since I started solid food for Chhori, I have given her Jaulo, Nepali rice veggie puree which is high in nutrition and quite filling too. It is so easy to make and versatile that I thought it would be helpful for any mum so I’m sharing the recipe here.

Ingredients

  • 4 table spoon of rice
  • 2 table spoon of red lentils
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 tablespoon ghee (clarified butter)(optional)
  • 100 gm of broccoli (replace with any veggie your child likes)
  • Pinch of salt (optional)

  • Put the mixture in a blender and make it a fine puree for baby under 7 months and coarse for baby between 7- 10 months. Older kids can be given the jaulo mashed using a spoon.
