Dalia or Broken Wheat is one of the healthiest and easily digesting food for all ages. Specially for babies, it is given in the form of porridge and is popularly known as Indian Porridge. It is of high nutritious value and when cooked it gives tasty, aromatic and nutty texture. It is healthy and tasty to be eaten in the form of a dessert as well for all ages.  To make it easier for infants, it can be blended smooth and fed easily.

Dalia or Broken Wheat Porridge Recipe for Babies

Can be given to 8 Months + and early if there is no family history of gluten allergy due to wheat. This porridge will be naturally flavored and nutty in taste and babies would love the same. There is no need to add any sweeteners for babies till an year. If you wish you can spice it up naturally. I would recommend adding cumin powder, cardamom powder or cinnamon powder and this applies to all porridges for babies below an year. Here I’ve added homemade Dates Powder and Nuts Powder to make this nutritious. You can skip this to keep it easy and simple or you can simply use soaked dates to sweeten up for babies below an year or Jaggery for babies above an year. You can check Natural Sweeteners, Dry Fruits Powder or Assorted Nuts Powder from our store.
