Just sharing with mommies out there the stock that I usually do for my baby's porridge.

Pork Stock
------------
- Pork Ribs
- Wolfberries
- Red dates
- Wai San
- Yu Zhu
- Dried Scallops

Boil in a pot of water for about 1-1/2 hours.
Store & Freeze them in packs of about 200ml.

To use, I defrost one pack in the fridge and cook with 1/4 cup of rice grains, a slice of ginger and 1 smashed garlic.
Add a little water if the rice has absorbed the stock.
I normally boil porridge for about 20mins.
Then I add meat/fish/vegetables for about another 8-10mins before switching off the fire.

No need to add any salt or seasoning as the stock itself has flavour.

For just-weaned babies, I blend the food till smooth before serving.
I will adjust the coarseness accordingly as the child grows bigger till he is capable of eating 'adult' porridge.

One Tip : I set a timer when I cook the porridge as I sometimes do get forgetful over what's happening to the stove as I attend to the kids ! Embarassed

Hi Yangone

If I add sliced guoropa + chopped spinach into the porridge for 8 minutes, the spinach won't turn yellow and the guorapa wont' disintegrate?

Hi dianaheng01

You dont have to slice the fish too thinly. Cut in chunks would be better. And if you want to serve it for the adults, you can lightly season the fish chunks with some salt, pepper, sesame before putting it in the porridge.

I like to also serve it with lots of spring onions and fried shallots. Smile

After cooking both the veggie and fish, then you use a spoon to flake the fish before giving to the toddler. Good thing is that a veggie like spinach doesnt turn yellow too quickly even if you cook for a longer time. That;s why spinach also suitable to boil as a soup - ie. ikan bilis spinach soup.

Hi Yangone

Thks Yangone for answering my queries. The smashed garlic is it you smashed it and not chopped it? If I want to cook the porridge in rice cooker, do you have any idea how much pork stock to put if I want to cook 1 cup of rice for porridge?

Thks

Diana
