Healthy kale quinoa khichadi

For mother, Nothing is more satisfying to feed healthy and fresh food to her baby. When its comes to cook for my kids, I am very particular about adding servings of veggies, gains and protein to it. This recipe is one of such recipe which your baby can have it as his lunch or dinner. Even we can have same khichadi too.Here I am adding brown rice which is little hard to digest so start giving this when your baby is 8+ months. You can also roast brown rice before you make khichadi so it will be lighter to digest.
