Rujuta recommends adding ghee in proportion to food. It all depends on the quantity and type of food you prepare. If you eat millet, add more ghee, but if it’s rice and pigeon peas, add a little ghee. "You should add enough ghee to enhance the flavor, but not too much so as not to cover up all other flavors," he said. Once your child starts to eat solid foods,
