Im giving you two versions of the recipe, one for toddlers and the other one for babies, as its not advisable to give them milk below one year.
Sooji is easily digestible and is made from wheat so its very good for babies.
Sooji Khanji for Babies:
- Sooji – 1 Tbspn (use fine sooji)
- Water- 1 cup
- Formula powder (optional)
Fry Sooji in half a tsp of ghee and keep it aside when its light brown. In another pan, boil water and slowly add sooji and stir till it cooks well. Now add little sugar and turn off the flame when the sugar melts.
Finally add formula powder before serving. (Do not cook with formula powder)
