How to Make Parboiled Rice Porridge for Toddlers

  • Rinse the parboiled rice in water, and in a clean white dhoti or towel spread the wet rice evenly.
  • Allow the wet rice to dry in the towel.
  • Take the dried rice in a container and add omam, badam and cashew.
  • Grind the above ingredients in a rice mill to a nice powder.
  • You can also try grinding it in a mixer at home in smaller quantities and sieve to remove lumps and again grind the lumps to get a nice kanji powder.
  • Method for preparing porridge:
  • Soak some palm sugar in water, and extract the juice using a filter.
  • After preparing the porridge powder, based on the age of the baby, take a little quantity (1 tsp) on the first day and add a little water. Stir well to avoid lumps.
