When your baby gets bored to the usual ragi porridge, raw banana porridge and wheat porridge, then this sooji porridge comes as a life saver. It is so easy to prepare and so healthy for babies too. There are certain things you have to read must before making this.

Things to remember before making this:

1) Roast sooji well in the ghee this makes it easy to digest in babies.

2) You can roast sooji in bulk and store in a air tight container in fridge and use it accordingly.

3)If you want a finer and smooth kheer, powder the roasted sooji in a blender, this will make more smoother kheer and your baby will find it easy to swallow. I make it that way only. The texture depends upon your babies interest.


4)For babies above 1 year old you can make this kheer with cow's milk, for babies below 1 year cow's milk is not advisable.

5) Dont add formula milk to hot kheer, since formula milk should not be cooked, let the kheer comes to a warm temp in which you feed your baby, then add the prepared formula milk.

6)I use panakarkandu or karupatti as sweetner. Karupatti strengthens your baby bones. Panakarkandu helps prevending cold for your babies.You can even mix up a small piece of both.
 

7)If you feed a good bowl of this for your baby. Your baby will sleep peacefully for a good 2 to 3 hours. It is that filling.
  
 
8)Sooji doesn't cause constipation in babies.

9)Sooji is easy to digest and non allergenic food.

10)The consistency of the porridge which you make totally depends on you. You can make it too runnier and pour it bottles and feed your baby or make it little thicker and feed your baby using a spoon.

How to sterilize baby feeding bowls:
 

Start by sterilizing the bowls and spoons which you are going to feed your baby. Take the bowl and spoon in a large saucepan, cover it with water and bring them to a boil. Boil it rapidly for 5 mins. Now you can turn the heat off and leave them stay in the hot water till use.
 

How to make Sooji Kheer for Babies & Infants :

Sooji / Semolina / Suji / Rava - 2 tblspn
Jaggery /Sarkarai / Vellam / Palmsugar - 2 tblspn
Clean Water - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 tsp

                           (I use lactogen for my baby)

Method:

Take a clean sauce pan and add in a tsp of ghee. Add in sooji and roast it on a low flame till it turns light golden.Now remove that to a bowl. 

In the same sauce pan add in jaggery and some water. Heat it till jaggery melts. Now strain this mix and pour it into a sauce pan.

Add in roasted sooji and mix well. Cook till the sooji is well cooked, it will take around 10 mins.

Now remove the sauce pan from heat and let it cool a bit. Mean while make formula milk. Pour this milk to the warm sooji kheer and mix well.
