I'm due for few entries on Zahra's solid food. So far she has tried almost ALL the food in her stage yeay! And so far no allergy found double yeay! Only can tell already which she likes most and least. What a picky eater hehehe.
Before I continue my rambling, I just found out about photoscape and it's easier for me to upload my pictures as I can to this combined-pic. I like to take lots of pic and most of the pics went to waste sebab mcm tak best nak upload banyak2 haha. Now senang tiling like this. Anyway I tried to do numbering but can't find the way to duplicate the box so mcm susah..later lah I godek2.
Oh ya..this is what I made Zahra last two-weeks, rice porridge with Japanese Sweet Potato! (the week before I made porridge with sweet peas, that one later lah I post).
Since this is only experimental, I used 2 types of japanese sweet potato, yellow and purple one. Alahhh..nama punya bombastic, it is keledek je in Malay! Haha..
So what you have to do is scrub the skin clean, to remove the dirts and all. You can peel it and boil but I chose to bake it as it is said to bring out the flavor the most. If you want to bake it like what I did, just poke the potatoes with fork and run it under the water (so some water will trapped inside, this will help to cook the potatoes). Wrap with aluminium foil bake it for 45mins at 200-250 celcius. Once you unwrap the foil, oh-my-god..the smell is so heavenly that I wish I bought more the sweet potatoes for me and MrComot (yes, we bought only 2 pieces for Zahra! :P)
I divide the porridge into two portion as I want it to be in different colors. So we got 2 batches of porridge with jap sweet potatoes, one in yellow and one in purple. So far Zahra prefer the purple one. It tastes very much the same but slightly different in the sweetness and creaminess. The purple one less creamy so maybe she tak muak. But the smell sangat sedappp even though dah mix with the rice.
Oh ya, I also introduce Zahra to spices. I add a bulb of garlic in the porridge, sauteed it with half a teaspoon of olive oil.
As I said before, she almost finished the list in her stage (she's trying pumpkin today). And coincidentally, she's turning 8 months in few more days, so more food to come up! Will update more! :D
