Multigrain Cereal breakfast recipe ( for 7+ and 8+ months baby )

Ingredients: ( for 7 & 8 months baby multigrain cereal )
  1 Cup – Rice
1 Cup – Wheat
2 Cups – Oats ( quick oats )
note: I used ‘par-boiled ponni rice ‘ .. If you are not sure
of what rice to buy, buy organic white rice.

Method:

Step 1) Get ready with all the ingredients 

Step 2) Quickly wash the wheat, rice and drain the excess water using a colander/strainer ..

Step 3) Heat a shallow pan or wok, add the wheat and rice and roast until they become dry and crispy ( takes 5 – 6 minutes )..

note: the rice will be wet and clumped at first.. as you roast, it will become dry and crispy .. also the wet rice will stick to the spoon when you stir .. ( it will stop sticking when ready – watch the video for a clear idea ) ..

Step 4) Once they are crispy, spluttering and the rice stops sticking to the spoon,  turn off the heat

Step 5) Spread on a plate. Add the oats, mix and let it cool for 3 minutes before grinding ..

Step 6) Grind in small batches and store in a clean dry jar or an airtight container and use as needed..

note: If the multigrain powder is warm after grinding, let it cool for 10 minutes before closing with the lid..
