Garam Masala has one of those fabulous, exotic names that scare most people off when they see it in the spice aisle. It’s actually a mix of cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, cumin, black pepper and coriander. This dish has a mix of protein, vegetables a starch and is vegetarian.
Cannelini beans, also known as white beans have a smooth texture and a nutty flavor. Combined with the brown rice, you have a complete protein. I’ve been making the adult version of this dish for years. When you make this for babies it becomes a creamy purée that—I’ve found—they can’t stop eating.
