Baby Risotto (Serves:1; Preparation Time: 45 minutes)

Guest Blogger: Natasha Chawla

Hello people! This is my first ever contact with a blog as far as writing is concerned… and its exciting! I had promised my dear friend, Ishita to share this recipe on her blog. This is something I used to make pretty often for my baby a few months back, from the time he was 9 months old. It is my own version of Risotto for babies, which is very nutritious, tastes good, easy to cook and most importantly baby friendly.

Ingredients
  • A small bowl of cooked rice
  • About 10 leaves of spinach, finely chopped
  • A small cube of crushed Paneer
  • Half cup milk
  • little ghee/butter
  • Salt to taste
  • Black/white pepper to taste
  • Oregano/mixed herbs (optional -if your baby is experimental with his taste buds)
  • A few chopped olives (optional -if your baby is experimental with his taste buds)
Steps
  • Sauté spinach in butter/ghee till it is nice and crisp and remove it from the pan

  • Using the same pan, boil milk, add rice to that and let it cook a bit more in milk

  • Throw in the spinach

  • Let it cook for a minute

  • Add salt, pepper, olives, paneer and herbs in it

  • Cook for half a minute more

Voila! An Indian version of baby risotto is ready for you to serve!


P.S.

  • For chicken variant, you could put 1 spoon boiled and minced chicken at the time of adding spinach in milk rice mixture

  • You could replace rice with vermicelli or pasta
