Yogurt based rice |curd rice with cucumber

Yogurt is a staple food for many adults and children. I grew up eating curd rice at-least once in a day in my childhood.

why yogurt is recommend in baby’s diet – is the nutritional profile yogurt that is rich in calcium and phosphorus for bone strength and protein and fat needed for babies growth. Along with that, the active live cultures -probiotics that is in yogurt makes the gut healthy and helps digesting the protein in the milk faster. Selecting whole milk yogurt is beneficial.

It’s important to include yogurt in the baby’s diet. One of the way is curd rice. I introduced yogurt to my little one when he was around 8 months. Introduce cucumber (or any other vegetable)to the diet first, and then use it while making the curd rice. Skip the salt until the baby is a year old.

Always check with paediatrician before introducing any new food. Follow the 3-day rule too.

Ingredients:

  • 4 tbsp long grain rice. (basmati rice is not preferred)
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • pinch of ginger
  • 1/2 cup grated cucumber(skip this if baby is not tolerant)
  • 1/2 cup whole milk yogurt
  • 1/2 cup water

Preparation:

  1. wash and clean the rice until the water is clear.
  2. In a pressure cooker, add water and rice, cook until soft. Couple extra whistle will help.
  3. In a bowl, mix ginger, cumin, cucumber, and yogurt.
  4. Allow cooked rice to cool, and mix it along with the mixture prepared above.
  5. Serve at room temperature.
