NOTE: This recipe is for baby one year and older. This is also best served to babies that have already been accustomed to some spices and herbs in their diet.
New baby-led weaning contend that baby’s food needs not to be very bland. Culture can be changed and it is now time to make your baby start into the gastronomic journey like no other. Our dear Indian moms can share a thing or two with us. And that is using spice and introducing it into baby’s diet without worrying so much about their digestion. In fact, spices and herbs are best to add flavor and are also considered natural remedies for ailments like tooth problem (think of mint!) and for cough (like basil, turmeric curry).
Here we will be needing baby corns, garam masala and ground turmeric (if you can find fresh one, the better), olive oil and coriander leaves.
Ingredient Selection Tips.
- Garam masala (means hot and mixture of spices). Based on the Ayurvedic remedies, the mixture of spices is used to “heat up the body”. The mixed spices contain cinnamon, cloves, cardamon (brown and green), nutmeg, black pepper and peppercorns. Other spices can also be used like garlic cloves and tej patta. These ingredients are toasted, grounded or milled together. If you can get the fresh ingredients, then it would be best to ground it all together using your Baby Bullet Milling Blade. If not, then look for an Indian or spices specialty store.
- The baby corn is also known as cornlettes. It is also known as candle corn in Thailand. It is a young maize harvested quite early before its stalk becomes mature.

Bon appétit for your baby!
