1)Texture of the puree depends upon you, i would recommend you to make the puree smooth.
2)Your baby wont empty the whole bowl all at once, start with few spoons then increase it gradually as days pass by.
3)In my opinion & experience green gram wont cause any constipation in babies.
4) I don’t prefer freezing purees. I make it fresh everyday.
6)Green Grams are less likely to have any allergenic reactions.
