Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Firstly deskin and deseed the sapodilla and mash it in a bowl and keep aside.
  2. Melt the ghee in a small sauce pan on a low flame.
  3. On low-medium heat add whole wheat flour to ghee and roast the flour in the ghee by continuous stirring until the flour turns light golden in color and leaves nice aroma.
  4. Now lower the flame and add almond powder and roast for about 10-15 seconds.
  5. Switch off the flame and add milk to it and mix thoroughly so that there are no lumps of the flour. Then switch on the flame and cook this mixture on medium-high heat for about 3 minutes by continuous stirring so that the mixture doesn’t stick to the bottom of the sauce pan. At this point, if required you can add additional milk to adjust the consistency as the mixture gets thick on heating. Now remove it from flame and keep aside.
  6. Add this cooked flour and almond mixture to the mashed sapodilla and mix well. Feed the baby when its luke warm.
Recipe Notes

If you prefer to add formula milk or breast milk instead of cow’s milk then instead of adding milk add water to the flour and mix well and cook until it thickens and is a bit more thicker than the babies usual meal. Then remove from flame and add mashed sapodilla and when it cools down a bit add baby’s usual formula milk or breast milk and adjust consistency.
Formula milk or breast milk shouldn’t be boiled. So do not add formula milk or breast milk while cooking. Hence add water and cook it a bit thicker than baby’s usual meal consistency so that yu can add formula milk or breast milk later and adjust consistency as required
Adding sugar or salt isn’t preferred to this meal as the sapodilla itself imparts natural sweetness you to the meal.
