Here is a recipe for a rice porridge which is a sure winner. This is a great starter baby food as well. Adjust the thinness of the porridge to your taste by adding more water. As always Gluten-free and dairy-free.


  • Rice coarsely ground – 1/4 cup
  • Carrots grated (or any vegetable) – 1/4 piece
  • Water – 3 cups
  • Salt
  • Olive oil – 1 tbsp
  • Seasonings (red chillies, curry leaves) if desired
Ground rice

Ground rice


Heat oil in a skillet and add seasonings if desired. I normally remove the red chillies and curry leaves after they are fries in the oil. Add the grated carrots in this oil and let it cook for a few seconds before adding the water and salt. When the water starts boiling, slowly add ground rice while stirring. Cook this covered on a low flame, stirring it occassionally, until it is thick enough to your desire. This will take atleast 15 minutes.
