A vegetarian diet is deficient in vitamin b12 and soya is the only vegetarian food source that is rich in this vitamin. This nourishing pulao has a lot of flavours that will probably be new to your baby. Serve it with curds or dal to mellow down the flavours so that she can adjust to these new additions to her meals.
