you need to limit her milk feeds and alternate them with solids. Keep a gap of minimum 2 hours between her milk feed and solid feed, so that she is hungry and accepts solids. Start with a spoon or so and gradually increase the amounts of feed according to her acceptance. Introduce only one food at a time, let her have it for 3-4 days and then introduce another food. Initially keep the consistency pouring/flowing and then thicken it according to her acceptance. Keep seasonings very mild, as babies don't generally like very strong flavours. You can give porridge of suji, sagi, dalia, rice flakes, ragi etc. Kheer of apple, rice etc. halwa of suji, atta, pumpkin, gajar, sweet potato etc. Khichri, upma, soft scrambled egg yolk, soups, mashed veggies, chapatti, rice,idli, dosa, uttapam,fruits etc. Hope it helps.
