All parents wish that our babies be fed with the best food available out there. And we do wish that it contains right amount of protein, carbs, fat and so on. In short every possible nutrient rich foods. But feeding them all at the same time is a bit challenging.
Whatever the baby would eat is only a small quantity. Thinking of which, it would be very difficult to prepare multi-grain things day by day. Especially as it will be a very huge quantity you would make day by day. So what to do?!... Simply prepare a Multi-Grain Porridge Powder.
We shall prepare a multi-grain powder using a variety of cereals, pulses and nuts. And once your kid is hungry all you need to do is make porridge using a few spoons of the same.
To make it easier to buy all the cereals, pulses and nuts, l just bought a pack of Manna Health Mix grains (1 kg) pack. It is available online and other provision stores too. They have already provided roasted items, but still to make sure that it is moisture free I have roasted it once again.

All that we have to do is dry roast the cereals pulses and nuts thoroughly and powder them and sieve and mix. Let us start with Ragi. Heat a Kadai thoroughly and add Ragi. Dry roast it until the raw aroma turns to a roasted flavoured one. Remove it to a thoroughly washed and sundried plate. Again place the Kadai on flame and add Bajra. Dry roast it very well until the aroma of corn arises. Remove it to the plate as well. Dry roast Jowar until it turns aromatic. Remove it to the plate. Dry roast the sweet corn kernels for just a few minutes taking care that it doesn't pop. Transfer it to the plate.
Make a mixture of Barley , Green Gram, Sago. Dry roast this mixture until it's moisture is gone and the aroma of roasted Sago comes out. Transfer it to the plate. Make another mixture of Wheat, Soya Bean, Fried Gram, Ground Nuts, Cashew Nuts and Badam. Dry roast them until the flavour of roasted Groundnuts comes out. Transfer it to the plate. Now wait until the roasted items cool down.
Transfer the grains in parts into the mixer jar and powder it very well. You may add Cardamom (optional) to the mixer jar before blending.Transfer it to the sieving mesh and pat it gently. The fine powder will get through the mesh and the coarse powder will remain. Blend the coarse powder once again and sieve it again. The remaining coarse powder will be mostly skin of sweet corn kernels or so. Discard it or use it in dosa batter if you wish to. Collect the fine powder into the Kadai and mix thoroughly. Now pack it in an air-tight jar.
