Doodhi, a watery vegetable, is ideal for making soups for babies! It helps to fulfil their water requirement in an easy-to-digest and soothing form. The bland taste of doodhi is also liked by babies.

We have pressure cooked, blended and strained the Doodhi Soup to make it easier for the child to consume and digest. Since salt is not recommended by paediatricians at this age, we have not added any. If there is any leftover, you can drink it up with a little salt and pepper too, but not for your baby!

We as adults may find it bland, but its quiet nourishing for babies. Do try it. It''s a good change from regular beetroot, carrot or potato soup....
