Beet root Rice for Toddlers

Posted on Updated on

This is a recipe which yuv liked from 8 months..only difference is that when he was 8 months n uptill 18 months i used to cook beetroot with rice as said in my older post n put in mixer!
now he loves it this way from 18 months n u can spice it up according to the kids taste buds n Yuv jus loves this…
here i go….

Shredded beet root: 1 cup
Small onion : 2
Chilli powder – a pinch or accordingly
Mustard seeds: 4
Curry leaves – 3-4
Salt: to taste

1.Pressure cook the shredded beet with lil required water only with salt n chilli powder
2.Once done,take a pan..put lil oil,sprinkle mustard seeds,curry leaves n saute the onion..
add the cooked beet root n saute well..
3.Steam rice for an extra 2- 3 whistles than normal.Mix the rice with the cooked beetroot
n a lil ghee n serve them.very tasty n healthy!!
1.Most of the kids after eating beet or carrot can see the colouration in their next stool..nothing to worry..normal!!!
2. Same recipe can b done with carrot instead of beet root!!
