One of the best weaning foods that is recommended by most peadiatricians is Rice Mash. It is easily digestible and more hygenic. Many a times, this mashed rice is ground to a fine paste in mixer which is not advisable. It have to be cooked very softly and mashed thoroughly and if it is the first food it can be diluted with breast milk too. 

Rice - 1/4 cup
Water - 1 cup
Ghee - 1/2 tsp

Wash rice thoroughly and pressure cook for 3 to 4 whistles. Remove from cooker and mash it with a flat bottom spoon along with ghee. It have to be of a very fine paste and smooth consistency.

Feed it luke warm.
