Notes:

Steam cooking keeps the pumpkin cooked and at the same time doesn’t let it get mushy.

You can mash the gram dhal if you wish. I like them in al dente form.

You can offer this to babies above 6 months skipping salt.

Always have a word with your doctor before introducing any new food to your babies.
