Answer: Rice cereal/rice porridge is the best if you are starting for the first time. It's easy to digest and less likely to cause any allergic reaction. You can also prepare mashed rice for the baby.
Here is how to make it-
Boil rice till it is cooked (you can use a pressure cooker to save time). Mash the rice well to a smooth consistency. Once your baby adjusts to this, you could add some lentil(dal) and vegetable stock to make it tastier. You can also add milk or curd to increase its nutritional value.
