Hence, fresh homemade paneer is the best and so is curd or any other milk product.
The vitamins, minerals and protein content of green moong dal can be substantially increased by sprouting. Although sprouts are best eaten raw, here we blanch the sprouts for a few minutes in boiling water so it's easy for the baby to swallow. When mixed with finely chopped salad, it serves as a nutritious and filling breakfast.
