| May 30, 2017
Hi Rahila, i am sharing the recipe of mixed veg soup with you hope it may help . Ingredients: 1 big carrot 1 small tomato 3-4 florets of cauliflower 8-10 green peas 1 inch piece of cabbage 1 clove 1 small piece of cinnamon 1 small piece of rock candy (or 1/4th tsp sugar) Pinch of black pepper powder Salt to taste. Steps: Wash the vegetables thoroughly and then chop them into small pieces. Cook the chopped vegetables in a pressure cooker for 10 minutes (5-6 whistles). Mash the cooked vegetables finely or coarsely depending on your child’s age. Take 1 cup of water in a pan and add clove, cinnamon, and rock candy. Boil the water, and then add mashed vegetables, pepper powder, and salt. (Overcooking vegetables reduces their nutritional value. So I add vegetables after the water’s boiled. ) (Note: It is recommended to avoid adding salt in babies' food till they turn one. However, in my case I found that my baby is just wouldn't eat food without salt. Hence, I started adding little bit of salt in his food. You can decide whether you want to add salt or not after talking to your child's pediatrician. ) Allow the soup to simmer for a minute and then turn off heat. Remove the clove and cinnamon from the soup. Add some butter on top before serving the soup.
