I started making nuts/seeds powder when my son started his solids at 6 months but stopped once he got all his teeth. But now have started making it again as I just can’t eat dry fruits so nothing better than making powder and consuming it. Making powder also eases everyday work of soaking almonds etc. Sharing a short video along with the written recipe below. The fragrance and taste are just so good. Dry fruits powder is a healthy option for babies and toddlers because we can’t offer whole dry fruits to them. Add it to their dal , curd, daliya porridge etc and offer.
Ingredients I used:
1/2 almonds (soaked and skin removed)
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup pista
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup watermelon seeds
1/4 cup cashews
1/4 cup flax seeds
1/4 cup dried coconut/copra/girigola
2 to 3 cups foxnuts/makhana
2 big pinch of saffron
Soak almonds overnight. Remove the skin and dry roast in a pan (video attached below). Similarly, roast everything one by one for a minute or two except saffron. Keep makhana (fox nuts) separately after roasting. Powder together all the roasted nuts and seeds in small batches. Powder makhana separately. Once done, mix everything together and store in an airtight container.
Stays good in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 months or more if stored properly.
Ingredients can be used as per preference and availability.
It’s perfect even for babies who have just started solids. I used to add this to Rahyl’s portion of dal, oats etc.
Make sure all the nuts and seeds have been tested individually for allergies before making powder and offering it to little ones.
This can be added to #milkshakes, #smoothies, #dal, #oats, #milk or even ghee rice.
