Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: ¼ cup
  • Pear - half or less depending upon the size of pear
  • Water - ¼ cup to ⅓ cup depending on stiffness of pear
  1. Wash a pear, peel the skin and cut half(or less) pear(leaving the center rim) into pieces as shown below.
  2. In a vessel, add pear pieces and pour water till pear pieces are half-immersed. Close with a lid and let it boil in medium flame until pear is cooked. It might take just 3 to 5 minutes depending on the ripeness of the pear.
  3. Once pear is cooked soft, switch off the stove and mash well with a potato masher, making sure there are no lumps left. Pick out the fiber strands(Naar in tamil), if any. For babies less than 6 months, you shall cool down and grind in mixie.
1.No need to add sweetener. Salt and sweet are not recommended for babies below one year.
2.If the baby is below 6 months, you have to boil pear till the baby turns 6 months.. After 6 months, you can give raw pear puree(just mash the pear well). For babies who have exclusively breastfed for 6 months, you shall give boiled pear puree just for 1 week and then move to raw and well ripened pear.
3.Use mixie to blend only till 6 months.. Then you shall mash using potato masher as per this post.
4.Warning! Mother’s milk is sufficient for babies till 6 months. Think twice and discuss with your Paed before starting other food!
