I am a pumpkin fanatic. I love any recipe that includes it, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin enchiladas, pumpkin pie, you name it. So when I first started making risotto for the kids, I naturally thought I have to make them a pumpkin version. I scoured the web for a recipe, but all of them included either too many ingredients, or fresh chopped pumpkin--which can take too much time for a busy mom's schedule. So this recipe is a simplified and kid-friendly version of pumpkin risotto.
Babies of Indian descent, who are ready for stage 3 foods, are often given khichdi because its loaded with protein form the lentils, its soft, easy to chew, and simple to make. Khichdi is an Indian staple and you can cook it with as little as 3 ingredients or as much as 20 ingredients. In my experience, the more ingredients means the longer time spent cooking the dish. And with twins, I have had to learn to be efficient and cut corners when possible. This recipe is a favorite of my cuties and is limited to a just a few ingredients.
