How to make Healthy Tomato and Beetroot Soup for babies Recipe -Njkinny's Blog

This recipe is very rich in Vitamin E, Beta-Carotene, Iron, Fiber and suited to everyone even babies over one year of age. Nutritious, tasty and a rich red colour, it gives the body nutrition and is one of my favourite soup/curry. My baby who is now three years old has been in love with this soup ever since I first introduced it in his diet and enjoys it frequently.

Tomato and Beetroot Soup also helps lose weight due to its fiber content and low to almost no oil used in making it. Also a vrat recipe that can be enjoyed when fasting, this one is a Diabetes friendly recipe and can be enjoyed by babies and adults alike.

Ingredients Required:

4 finely chopped tomatoes (Tamatar),
2 finely chopped Beetroot (Chukandar),
Salt to taste,
1 tsp Crushed Black Pepper (Kali Mirch),
1 tsp Cumin (Jeera),
Chopped Fresh Green Coriander (Hara Dhaniya) for garnishing,
1 tsp Desi Ghee,
1 pinch asafoetida (Hing),
4 cups water

Steps to prepare Tomato and Beetroot Soup/Curry (Tamatar aur Chukandar ka Shorba/Sabji) for babies:

a) Take a Pressure Cooker and add desi ghee.

b) Add Hing, jeera (cumin) and wait until it crackles.

c) Add the chopped tomatoes and beetroots.
Stir for a minute.

d) Add water, crushed black pepper and salt.

e) Close the lid and cook till two whistles on high flame.

f) Open the pressure cooker and gently crush the beetroot and tomatoes.

g) Cook for a minute without the lid.

h) Grind the soup in a grinder and then run it through a sieve so any chunks get removed before serving it to your baby. Adults can enjoy it without grinding like I do!

j) Serve hot with either chappati, paratha, rice, bread or enjoy it solo.

  1. Can adults eat this soup too hehe? I love beets so I'm sure I would love the flavour of this soup!

    1. Sure, anyone can eat it. My family adores this soup and the only difference that I make when preparing it for my baby is to grind it and run it through a sieve. :)

  2. When i saw soup i thought its something i can prepare and eat swallow with but i guess not. I can only make this for Sunday rice, i hope mine taste as good as yours look after making it. Looks really nice and appetizing.

    1. You can enjoy it solo, with rice or bread. It tastes so good and is so nutritious that once you start you will never stop preparing and enjoying it! :)

  3. Sound very tasty and like something similar I make but with chicken or seafood. I've never cooked beetroot before.

    1. Do try it and hope you enjoy it as much as I do. :)

    The beetroot would give this soup a nice red color. I should try making this soup. We no longer have babies in the house but I am sure the adults would love it. :) Saved the recipe and added this to my menu plan for next week.

    1. Anyone can eat this soup and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do, Kristine. :)

  5. Ohw! I bet this is something not only tasty but truly healthy - I have tried beetroot juice as alternative doctors says it is reach in nutrients to help the blood (rbc) bbut I haven't thought of making a soup out of it. Great recipe, thank you!

    1. Welcome Liz. This is an old recipe in my family and very very healthy. :)

  6. This sounds like a great recipe for a baby meal with plenty of flavour. I never even though to make something like that myself I was so tired as my first ones were so close in age.

    1. Raising kids is tiring but still an experience a mother never wants to forego, right?! I hope you enjoy this recipe Melanie. :)

  7. That is awesome and I did not know. I only wish I knew about blogging when my kids were babies. I have learned so many great things reading great posts like yours.

  8. Thank you Marjie. I hope you like this recipe. Everyone can eat it and it is very very healthy. :)

  9. This recipe looks yummy as well as healthy. I will surely try this sometime soon.

  10. Oh my! Thanks for this new recipe! I will definitely save this and make this recipe. YUMMY!
