    While starting a diet don't go for solid at once. First start with boiled rice water dal water and milk. Then start giving sooji ,dalia made in milk. Add very little sugar to it just to keep the taste. Khichdi , Boiled dal and vegetables are good. Don't give so much of heavy dal. If you giving him heavy dal like rajma then start slowly. First give very little quantity then check his digestion level. And continue accordingly. Water should be boiled for few days in the beginning. But don't make it a habit. Otherwise baby will become sensitive. Try to give all home made food. Make little quantity and give fresh every time. Maintain hygiene and use of bib will be required.

    Lithika,
    aspha has given you a good list. I would add stick mixer/immersion blender and steamer to the list. These two gadgets are so helpful for me to prepare fresh homemade veggie and fruits puree. But if you are planning on going to India, there would be voltage issue if you buy them from here. Priti mixie small jar would do the job perfectly.

    Good Luck with ur trip and have fun with the baby in India!
