You can use use normal rice too.

You can cook the rice with water instead of coconut milk.

Adjust green chilly as per your taste.

I have placed few raw beans on the plate just for representation.

Babies above 8 months have this .

Have a word with your doctor and consider family history of allergies before introducing any new food.

Avoid salt for babies less one year.
