Sweet potato mash

             When my 13 months old completes her food without her ryhmes/cartoons or opens her mouth for the next scoop of food,it is like a credit that food is tasty. i don't have words to explain the satisfaction i feel once she completes her food with no nakhras. This sweet potato mash is one evening snack which she loves.




              You can serve this for babies more than 6 months old(if you had started solid foods). do check with your pediatrician before you introduce any root vegetable(potato varieties produce gastric problems for the younger ones).


Ingredients:

Sweet potato   -   1 no (3/4th of your palm size)
Butter             -    1 teaspoon
Water             -    To boil them

Method:

  • Wash and peel the sweet potato.
  • Pressure cook the diced sweet potato with required water(2 to 3 whistles)
  • Drain them. run your mixer adding into it a teaspoon of butter with the boiled sweet potatoes 
  • Sweet,healthy and tasty mash is ready(it might get a bit thick after sometime. add some warm milk to bring to required paste consistency)
