After the age of 6 months, your baby will be ready to have foods that are of a more solid consistency. This sheera is rich in carbohydrates, protein, iron, and calcium and will keep your baby 'full' for a longer period of time. I have used banana to sweeten this sheera to make minimal use of jaggery.


Jowar flour 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) (white millet flour)
Milk 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Chopped jaggery 1 Teaspoon
Mashed banana 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Clarified butter 1 Teaspoon (ghee)
Water 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)



1. In a non stick pan, add clarified butter, and when hot, add jowar flour and sauté for a minute or two until light brown in color. Now add milk, and cook for half a minute, while stirring continuously so that there are no lumps.

2. Add half cup of water and jaggery, mix properly, and cook for a minute, while stirring continuously.

3. Turn off heat, add banana, and mix properly.


4. Serve the sheera lukewarm to your kid, adding some warm milk for diluting the consistency as per your baby's requirements.
