Add 1 small star anise and soak the rice for 15 20 mins.
Put the rice in a cooking pot along with the star anise and add 2-3 cups of water and put it on a medium flame. The flavours of star anise will help in colic and is also a good treatment for common cold and cough.
After cooking it for roughly 15 mins check if the rice is properly cooked.
Remove the star anise and use a strainer to strain the rice and mash it with a spoon to get the required rice water with starch. After a month when the child is ready you can feed the baby the mashed rice also. Happy weaning.
