Potato Baby Food Recipe

Sanju's daily lunch is porridge of either rice, brown rice or millet, teamed with 2 types of vegetables and lentils/cheese/fish/egg yolk for protein. Hoping not to bore him with the porridge routine, I started off with cereals for dinner time, mixed with different combinations of vegetable/fruit puree. After sometime, I myself got bored of the cereal/veg routine, and looked out for different alternatives for dinner feeding which I could add into the menu for variety.

Potato and pasta turned out to be great alternatives to cereal or rice. Here is one potato recipe I make for Sanju:

1-2 potatoes - diced
1 carrot - diced
1 clove garlic - cut long

Instructions - Cook the above in water or chicken stock for 15 - 20 mins. Once done, you can ma
sh it, or puree in the blender to the desired consistency.

Being a FTWM I do not have time to cook his dinner daily. Therefore I prepare the potato meal for 2-3 days in advance, and store it in the fridge. For quick and effective daily variety, I simply add in some cheese or egg yolk or powdered anchovies.

Here's what Sanju's meal looks like after blending:

hie Qarezma,

i'd like to ask, what type of cheese did u get?
thanks :)

QarezmaV said...

I bought the block type cheddar cheese

curiositykills said...

i see, the normal blue box by kraft right?

QarezmaV said...

Not the sliced type, those contain more salt and are more processed. Get the block types... look around in your supermarket, i am sure u will see what i mean

curiositykills said...

yeap, got it. seen the block ones before where u need to grate it yourself, not the slice ones.
ive been trying to get cottage cheese in KK but failed. need to try again this saturday, as they only have it at that shop:) thanks Q!

Hi, just got to know ur blog. I have questions, when to add the pasta for cooking? and blend the pasta together with the potatoes?

QarezmaV said...

Cooked Pasta should be added last, and blended or mashed as desired
