Jowar Spinach Porridge

Porridge is a healthy & tummy filling option for your little ones. Jowar or Sorghum is a millet with high iron & protein. Adding palak adds in a lot of fibre and iron too.

1/2 cup Palak/spinach (boiled and grinded)

A pinch of Cardamom


– Take a bowl & soak Jowar flour in 30-50ml of water for 10 minutes.

5-7 minutes, once cooled, make this into a smooth puree.
– Now cook jowar mix, palak puree with a little water as per requirement.

Tips: Buy whole jowar of 1kg and then make into a flour. It can get spoilt or bitter if you keep the flour for more than 3-4 weeks. So make Jowar into flour just as much as its needed.

Don’t close the lid while boiling palak, this will retain the colour and the antioxidants. Don’t over cook it, cooking for 5-7 minutes is enough to make the puree
