Carrot Dal Mash For 6 Months + Baby


This recipe Carrot Dal Mash was shared by my friend , who has a 9 month old cutie pie. I tried it out , and Anshika liked it so much that I felt I could share the recipe with all mommas here 🙂

Read various baby food recipes here.

I have used toor dal here , but if your baby is less than 7 months , please make this recipe with split yellow moong dal only to avoid gas in babies.

Toor dal is rich in proteins , good carbohydrates and fat. Carrots are enriched with betacarotene, Vitamin A and other nutrients .

Things Required

  • Toor Dal – 2 tbsp
  • Carrot – 1 medium
  • Turmeric Powder – a pinch
  • Ghee – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt – a pinch
  • Water – 1 cup

How To Prepare Carrot Dal Mash ?

  1. Wash and clean carrots. Cut into big pieces and keep it aside
  2. Wash and clean dal and pressure cook it with turmeric powder and salt along with carrots
  3. Mash or blend to the required consistency once cooled
  4. Add ghee and give it your baby

Please do le me know if your baby liked this recipe. It is excellent for lunch as well dinner.

    Hi Chechi, I don’t know how to thank u enough..My 9 month old daughter was acting like she invented fussy eating..she wouldn’t even open her mouth to any food except BM..I was doing research everyday on different possible recipes for her..and I came across bumpnbaby..I browsed the recipes.. Thought I will try a combined version of the Moong dal -brown rice porridge recipe and the Carrot-Dal mash recipe..IT WORKED..!!Thank u so much Chechi…now I use the combination as a base with a different vegetable added to it everyday..And finally my baby seems to be interested in food…Thank u so much… :* 😀
