We continue our Grandmom Recipe series this week with a healthy and interesting cereal powder mix that is easy to make at home and extremely nutritious. KSP's favourite grandmom, Jyoti Zaveri tells us how to prepare an Indian healthy and nutritious powder mix that your baby is sure to lap up.


For the cereal mix

  • 1 Cup Green Moong Dal
  • 1 Cup Rice
  • 1 Cup Bajra (Pearl Millet)

To make the cereal

  • 1 Tsp Ghee
  • 1/2 Tsp Ajwain ( Carom Seeds)
  • 1/2 Tsp Hing (Asafoetida Powder)
  • 1 Tsp Haldi (Turmeric Powder)
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • Pepper Powder


  • For the cereal mix, grind the rice, moong dal and bajra together. If you're travelling and taking the cereal mix then dry roast it before grinding it into powder.
  • When you want to prepare the cereal, for a bowl of cereal add 1 Tbsp of cereal powder to a cup of water and mix. Leave this to soak for at least 10 minutes
  • To make the cereal, heat ghee in a kadai. Add ajwain to it and wait for it to crackle.
  • Add the hing powder and two cups of water.
  • Once the water boils, add haldi, salt and pepper to it.
